This book has lullabies that are yet unsung. It’s rhythm is effortless. Language is as transparent as sugar. Read it twice and you would learn it.
Notice this play of words,
Ammi kehti hai ki baitha hai, par Rashid is baat par ada hai ki kauwa khada hai.
This is the space a child needs to play with language and imagination. And no one is too old for language games.
Proiti Roy has beautifully illustrated these lullaby-like poems.
