“I like that in my village there are many flowers. I have many friends in the village and I play with them. I don’t like any other village, I like only my village. There we have good water and many good fruits. We have beautiful gardens, but I like my garden the most.
In my village there are many houses and many hens, cows and cats. Many children live in my village but also old women and old men. In my village there is a school but I don’t like that school. I like only Vidyodaya school.
I don’t want to live in any other village.” – Keerthi
“I like my village. My village is near the forest. Many people live there. The only thing I don’t like is when elephants come to my house and I don”t like wild pigs. There are many trees and plants. I enjoy to go inside the forest.
Still I would like to live in town. The town has many Buses, cars, Jeeps and Loreys. I like to drive a jeep. The town has many schools and the village has only one school. It also has many shops, my village has no shops. I’d like to live in town, but the town has a lot of plastick and waste and then there are cows and they eat the plastick and then they die. My village has no waste and plastick. I like my village.” – Manikandan
“In my village I like my family and playing and to see movies. I really like hunting for animals in the forest. I like peacocks very much. A peacock is nice to see. And I like birds. And I like fruits very much. I like to climb trees and I like the colour green.
I don’t like to go to the hospital and I don’t like to go to school. I don’t like monkeys and donkeys.
I want to live in Kerala, there are many friends and big citys.” – Anub
“I like my village and lane. In my village I like the gardens and water. But I don’t like the people in my village. The people do not understand good news and they fight about the water and some problems come up. The flowers in my village have many colours and are beautiful. I like the Temple in my village and I like the girls and boys. I have four friends. I like my village sooo much!” – Indira
“If you ask me if I like my village, I would say yes. There is fresh air and it’s hilly with a good view and good soil for Agriculture. It is only misty in the morning. Many animals like deer, elephants, wild buffalos and many other animals live there. There are many trees and some big shops and tasty food.
I don’t like the hot season and that many cars make so much pollution. I don’t like people building many houses and cutting the trees.
If you want to know if I want to live somewhere else I would say: No, I couldn”t part with a piece of land from my beautiful village called Gudalur.” – Vishnu
