Unit 6 Development
The Ahluwalia family have a textile, or fabric, shop in London. First I asked Shashi Ahluwalia about the shop.
The business is basically importing textiles from Japan, India, France, and selling in UK.
Then I asked Shashi about the people who work in the shop.
Basically, the whole family: my father my mother my mother’s sister my brother, his wife my wife and my sister. My father generally keeps an eye on the whole business. My mother my sister my sister-in-law, my wife-they sell the fabrics to the customers. My brother and my self, we generally do the office work, we actually go out buying fabrics, but we also get involved in selling the fabrics and running the whole shop.
My next question was about where the family live.
We all live nearby. We live in Ealing and we all live separately- my brother with his family, myself with my family, and my parents live separately.
Finally, I asked Shashi where the family was from.
My parents come from the north India – the Punjab. The next generation, we were all born in East Africa – Nairobi, Kenya and our children were all born in London.
