First Letter from Somai

Somai is a new correspondence child from India.  It seems that his first letter got here very quickly.  He's only 6, so this is more "about" him than "from" him. The first page gives the name of his parents (who are 35 and 30) and his favorite food (rice, dal, egg) favorite color (red), favorite game (football), and farorite song ("Hindi Song").  Given the choice of city, town, village, riverside or mountain, he checks that he lives in a town.

On the back side is the "Message for my sponsor":

Dear Beverly,
