Bally and India

By: bally takher

I'm a hemiplegic 39 year old British Sikh Jatti. I love being british because although I became paralysed at the age of 32, I can still travel and enjoy my holidays in India or anywhere in the world. I have had a good solid University education and I feel that because I was born a Brit ,I have lots more freedom than many other disabled people in the world. I love listening to SoniaDoel & I'd love to go on a date with MC Raa because he makes me giggle all the time. I go to India every year because I get treated like a Queen. I usually have an entourage of 6 people: 1 to carry my mineral water, 1 to carry my handbag, 1 to carry my mobile phone pof course. 1 to chat to me, 1 to keep the undesireables away from me. I love all the attention. Being British gives me a lot of status- everywhere in the world. I love India so much and I want to see it become as clean as the u.k. one day
