In this lesson we look at what we are like and
how each of us is different. We are all interesting
people in different ways and we are all good at
different things. As you read this, think about
what you are like and what you enjoy doing.

My favourite activity is climbing
trees.  Just outside our house,
there is a mango tree which I
love to go up. Its branches
spread out, so it is simple to
climb up the tree, and I can sit
comfortably in the fork of two
branches. My mother tells me
it is not sensible for girls
to climb trees, but one
afternoon she climbed up too,
and both of us sat there
talking and eating raw
mangoes. When I am high up
in the tree, I feel like I can
rule the  whole world.

When I grow up, I
want to become a
seed collector. We
have cotton fields in
our village and every
year, my father
spends a lot of
money on buying new
seeds to grow our
cotton plants. My grandfather told me that
many years ago, he could collect the seeds from
his own plants which could be sown to grow
new plants during the next year. But today that
doesn't work so we have to spend money to
buy new seeds every single year. I want to
find out why that is so. I want to learn how to
preserve seeds so that we can use them again
and not spend money every year.

suppose I should go to the Konark temple

and the Pyramids in Egypt too, but what I

SERBJIT
What makes me
very angry is when
people don’t believe
me when I am
telling the truth.
For example, if I
tell my teacher
that I couldn’t do
my homework
because Ravi
borrowed my book
and forgot to
return it. Or I tell
my parents that it
wasn’t me but my
little brother who
started the fight. Or if I tell my teacher that
I really did study for the test even if I have
got bad marks. They all look at me as if
they think I am telling lies. The look on their
faces really angers me. Sometimes I have
to look down at my shoes and count to ten
so that I do not show that I am angry.

When I grow up, I am
going to be the Prime
Minister of India. People
always laugh when I say
that, but I am sure that I
will do it. Everyone in my
class asks me what to do
when they have a
problem, and my teacher
always trusts me when something needs
to be done in school. I want to make things
better for everyone. I want us to have good
hospitals and roads and schools. I want to
make sure that there are many good
scientists in India who will invent cures
for diseases and send a spaceship to Mars.
