Comments

I asked Purabi from Bangladesh if she was familiar with the Bengali rhymes we have. She wrote back: "Yeah, I'm very much familiar with both rhymes. I think the rhyme 'Hat-ti-ma-tim-tim' is known to almost all children (specially among the educated section of people)!"

হাট্টিমাটিমটিম
তারা মাঠে পাড়ে ডিম
তাদের খাড়া দুটো শিং
তারা হাটিমাটিমটিম
