Nowadays we get multiples of ways to teach children on numbers, counts, Stories etc just by a click on the internet, or by a download, or youtube or by purchasing a CD or many other means like saving using Service providers etc..

Lyrics in Kannada:: 

ಒಂದು ಕಾಡಿನ ಮಧ್ಯದೊಳಗೆ
ಎರಡು ಮರಗಳ ನಡುವೆ ಮಲಗಿ
ಮೂರು ಕರಡಿಗಳಾಡುತಿದ್ದವು
ನಾಲ್ಕು ಮರಿಗಳ ಸೇರಿಸಿ
ಐದು ಜನರಾ ಬೇಟೆಗಾರರು
ಆರು ಬಲೆಗಳನೆಳೆದುಕೊಂಡು
ಏಳು ಕರಡಿಯ ಹಿಡಿದು , ನೋಡದೆ
ಎಂಟು ಹಿಡಿದೆವು ಎಂದರು
ಒಂಬತ್ತು ಎಂದನು ಅವರಲೊಬ್ಬ
ಹತ್ತು ಎಂದರು ಬೇರೆಯವರು
ಎಣಿಸಿನೊಡಿದರೆಳೆಯೆಳು ಇಲ್ಲಿಗೀ ಕಥೆ ಮುಗಿಯಿತು

Simple attempt to translate into English: In 1 dense forest, between 2 trees, lied 3 bears along with their 4 bear cubs.Then came a group of 5 hunters with 6 nets.. They put net on the bears, thought that they have totally 8 animals inside,1 among them said ‘total animal count is 9′.. Other person said ’10 animals inside’, but actual total count was 7…The story ends here…

P.S ::::   Though this story doesnt have much of an elaboration, it is an attempt made by the poet/author to teach children on numbers( Math ), count and how to write short stories using a poem…

Do send me if you know any more shishu geethe/ child rhyme lyrics , so that I would like to post in my section here.. ? 🙂
