Writing articles

by Marissa Giles
(Minneaplis, Minnesota United States)

My name is Marissa, and I'm 14 years old in the 9th grade.

I'm currently attending school and trying to make better decisions. I love reading and writing, which I do In my spare time; with that being said I was looking for a job or something to do so that I could earn money to help my mom out around the house financially. Being the type of person I am, I'm not picky. A job is a job and I'll do whatever it takes to get that job and will be 100% committed. I've never got the opportunity due to my age because most places don't hire or give me the benefit of the doubt but I'm willing to do whatever. I've volunteered at feed my starving children 3 times and enjoyed it.
I guess I'm writing this because I want someone to read it and give me a chance to have an early experience making my own money, being responsible for something that benefits me, and doing whats right to have an better future. I'm just asking for a chance.

Hi Marissa,

Send me an email at millionairekids@gmail.com and let's talk.

Put "Give Me a Chance" in the subject.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

After Indian Independence in 1947, Hindi was declared the first official language, and attempts were made to declare Hindi the sole national language of India. Due to protests from Tamil Nadu and other non-Hindi-speaking states, it was decided to temporarily retain English for official purposes until at least 1965. By the end of this period, however, opposition from non-Hindi states was still too strong to have Hindi declared the sole language. With this in mind, the English Language Amendment Bill declared English to be an associate language "until such time as all non-Hindi States had agreed to its being dropped." This has never occurred, as English is now reckoned as all but indispensable. For instance, it is the only reliable means of day-to-day communication between the central government and the non-Hindi states.
The spread of the English language in India has led it to become adapted to suit the local dialects. Due to the large diversity in Indian languages and cultures, there can be instances where the same English word can mean different things to different people in different parts of India
The British first arrived in India in the early 1600s and soon established trading posts in a number of cities under the control of The East India Company. By 1765 the Company’s influence had grown to such an extent that the British were effectively controlling most parts of the country. This date is often taken as the start of what is referred to as The Raj — a period of British rule in India that lasted until Independence in 1947.
Initially English was only taught to the local population through the work of Christian missionaries — there were no official attempts to force the language on the masses. But by the 1700s, English had firmly established itself as the language of administration and many educated Indians were demanding instruction in English as a means of social advancement. By 1857 universities had opened in Bombay, Calcutta and Madras. English was increasingly accepted as the language of government, of the social elite, and of the national press.
today English in India
Despite continued pressure from nationalists, English remains at the heart of Indian society. It is widely used in the media, in Higher Education and government and therefore remains a common means of communication, both among the ruling classes, and between speakers of mutually unintelligible languages. According to recent surveys, approximately 4% of the Indian population use English. That figure might seem insignificant, but out of the total population this represents 35 million speakers — the largest English-speaking community outside the USA and the UK. In addition there are speakers of English in other parts of South Asia, such as Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, where English plays a similar role. English is virtually a mother tongue for many educated South Asians, but for the vast majority it remains a second language. This means there are speakers whose spoken English is heavily influenced by speech patterns of their ethnic language, alongside those whose speech reveals nothing of their racial background and some who are ranged somewhere in between
Indian English literature has a relatively recent history, it is only one and a half centuries old. The first book written by an Indian in English was by Sake Dean Mahomet's, titled Travels of Dean Mahomet's; Mahomet's travel narrative was published in 1793 in England. In its early stages it was influenced by the Western art form of the novel. Early Indian writers used English unadulterated by Indian words to convey an experience which was essentially Indian. Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay(1838–1894) wrote "Rajmohan's Wife" and published it in the year 1864 which was the first Indian novel written in English.English. Raja Rao (1908–2006),Indian philosopher and writer authored Kanthapura and The Serpent and the Rope which are Indian in terms of its storytelling qualities.Ruskin Bond, winner of sahitya academy award and the author of many novellas including The room on the roof, Flight of pigeons, etc. Rabindranath Tagore (1861–1941) wrote in Bengali and English and was responsible for the translations of his own work into English
