Remember with last months Tag Post I said, I would do one every month if February's went down well, yep it sure went down well, so here I am with another one! The tag I'm posting today is the Ethnicity Tag, I loved reading Raashi's (whose blog I am completely obsessed with, god, I love that girl ☺) take on it and thought I'd give it ago. We're both of the same culture so I pretty much understood every word she wrote haha! Right, lets get on with it!
What is your Ethnicity?
I am a fully pledged Indian haha, I come from an Indian background!
When was the last time you visited your country?
This one may shock you all, I haven't been in over, what must be coming up to 15 years. I remember India quite clearly though, there's this one memory I will never forget. My mum took us three siblings to visit an aunt, as you do, and as I exited the front door, I saw a very big cow in front (of course that's casual lol), and I thought it would be fun to go MOOO. Being a 5 year old, there was nothing stopping me, so I yelled MOOO, and got my sister to do the same. Nothing happened, so I yelled again, and then it started chasing me (okay I exaggerated) it took about 5 steps and I ran for my life and laughed it all off after!
Name one household item that best represents your culture.This is hard, most things in my house represent my culture, but as for the best, it has to be incense sticks, I think every Indian has them. They make the house smell so fresh and lovely!
Name one ethnic food that you enjoy the most.
One, are you for real. I can't, there are so many I enjoy. Samosa's, Bhel Puri, Chilli Paneer, the list goes on. Not to mention all the indian sweets like Burfi, my do I love a good Chocolate Burfi!
What part of your country are you from?I am from Gujarat, just don't ask me what part of India that's located in!
What song reminds you of your country?I'm going to have to be truthful here, as Indian as I am, I don't watch any Indian movies nor listen to the songs. I just don't understand them because they're sung in Hindi and I really don't understand a word of it. Although when I was a child I used to watch the big Bollywood films with subtitles, but I think that hobby has faded.
Do you speak your language?
I sure do, in India, from my understanding the main languages are Hindi and Gujarati, although I think Hindi is the predominant one. I don't speak Hindi but I do speak Guajarati! Half way there ..
Again, similar to the Get To Know Me Tag, I won't tag anyone in particular but if you've read this and fancy giving it a go, go for it! I'd love to give it a read ☺
