I use to play rhymes ,both English and Tamil for my 17 month old son .My husband pointed out that English rhymes contain lots of negative things. Some of them are, 1.Jack be nimble ---jack jumps over the candle stick.A bad example. 2.Johnny Johnny ----Johnny telling lies. 3.Jack and Jill ----- Jack falls down and breaks his crown. 4.Goosey Goosey Gander ----- the goose pushes the old man from stairs. 5.Rain Rain --------telling the rain to go away.Not suitable for Indians. 6.Humpty dumpty ------He falls from the wall and breaks into pieces. 7.London bridge---falling down.build with silver and gold and lock her up 8.Cock-a doodle-do---the master and the dame looses their things. 9.Ding dong bell----cat in the well. 10.Solomon Grundy----Dies and gets buried. On the contrary our Tamil rhymes contain 99 percent positive things. Friends,please share your views.
