The Thirsty Crow
Summer had arrived and how! A crow was very thirsty. He flew frantically in search of water, but in vain. All the lakes and rivers had dried up due to the virulent Sun.
At long last, he found a water pot lying in the out yard of a house. He flew unto the pot and peeped in. He was relieved. He found some water in the pot. He tried to reach for the water but could not reach it because it was at the bottom. He looked here and there in despair.
An idea flashed suddenly. He picked up stones lying around one by one, and dropped into the pot. Slowly the water rose up. Finally, the crow could reach the water. He drank the water and flew away happily with the Sun looking on in astonishment.

Add to EJ Playlist This rhyme is sung by the elders of the family about the time when the baby starts to recognise her hands and feet. The baby's hands are held in their own hands and clapped together and taken apart. When the rhyme ends, the hands are put together above the baby's head in a traditional "gOvinda" salute to the lord Venkateswara.
Add to EJ Playlist An object of kids' admiration, an elephant. In India, in olden days and even now in some places, elephants are seen in temples and are used for special festival processions to carry the idols of god in a ceremonious way. This rhyme describes that. It is also sometimes sung when an elder in the family becomes the "elephant" for the kid in fun play.
