Welcome to the world of OLUGUTI TOLUGUTI – and kosuguti too! It is 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. Meet Tuaan-Tueen and Rolenga and Suraiyya. Play in the rain falling chham chham chham, and dance thai thaka thaka with a crane standing on one leg. Meet Ammas and Abbus and Sister Moon. It is a chemma chekka world of dam padam pappadams and kahbdak khabdak rocking horses and lots more brought alive by Kshitiz Sharma's energetic and endearing illustrations. 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 also appear alongside. For those who want to know how to read, there are transliterations in Roman script (of English) and Devanagari (of Hindi).
