uncles in their high-rise apartment in Mumbai. They go
to a nearby school by rickshaw. Wearing their starched
gray & white uniform, they take a “tiffin” lunch to
school prepared by their mother.After school they
would change to some light clothing as it is hot. Amit
usually wears an Indian loose shirt and pants & Rani
wears a “salwar”(pants) and “kameez”(blouse).
When they get a chance, Rani & Amit love going to the
movies.Filled with action, romance and songs, movies
are the most popular form of entertainment. India
makes more movies than any other country in the world.

likes street hockey.Their favorite holiday is Diwali – the
Festival of Lights.It is a Hindu festival that celebrates
victory of good over evil.
