Job Description

What I am looking for is a young sounding female Indian voice (from India). She will be reading in the first person tense with the voice of a 14 year old.

This is the true story of a little Indian girl living in poverty in India. She tells the story about the things that happen in her daily life and how her Habitat for Humanity house changed their life.

Included is a portion of the script that I would like auditioned.

Thanks
Nicole


Hi, my name is Sindujah, and I’m 14 years old. My family and I are happy to be living here in a Habitat house.

I live here with my mom, dad and my two sisters: Sivalakshmi and Keerthika.

On school days, while it’s still dark outside, my mom wakes us up. Today, I’m very sleepy!

I help to get our family ready in the mornings. There are a lot of chores to be done to get ready for the day.

One of the things I do is pump the water that we use for drinking, cleaning, cooking and bathing. It’s a very important job and my family depends on me to do my part. Nevertheless, I get tired sometimes, because the water gets pretty heavy!

My mom is decorating the outside places of our house with flour. It makes our house pretty and inviting to guests and Lakshmi the Hindu Goddess of wealth. My older sister Shivalakshmi decorates the sidewalk beside our house. But it’s not completely done until I climb up on the roof and pick some flowers for the center of the pattern. There! Now it’s complete!

Mom helps us with our hair. She oils our hair and combs it out. Ouch! Sometimes it hurts a little.

My big sister washes the dishes. She’s very fast! That’s because she has to wash them ALL the time!

In the morning we also say our morning prayers together. We take our turns saying prayers and breathing the incense. We take our religion very seriously. When we’re done, we put a chanth on our foreheads.

Then, it’s time for breakfast! We usually have idly, a steamed rice cake with sambar curry and coconut chutney. Our family is very close, and we enjoy talking together during meals.

My younger sister Keerthika and I sometimes quarrel with each other. This morning she wants my shawl. I don’t think so! But, pretty soon we’re friends again. We usually get along pretty well together.

Well, it’s time to go to school, but before I can go, my big sister and my dad have to look at my report card. I didn’t do as well as I could have, so I’m getting scolded. I’ll do better next time!

School is really close by, so my friends and I walk there, together. We talk about all kinds of things.
