Welcome to a world of elephants, buffaloes, crows, cockroaches and hatttima tim tims. Listen to the birds call kau kau and kukre kuk. Watch pom pom motor cars and chuk chuk trains go by. Play in the rain falling chham chham chham, and dance thai thaka thaka. It is a chemma chekka world of dam padam pappadams and kahbdak khabdak rocking horses and lots more. The 54 rhymes in 18 Indian languages celebrate the richness and vitality of India's multilingual character. Lively adaptations in English capture the sounds and rhythms of the original languages, which appear alongside and in transliteration.
