Bhoomika sent this rhyme with a note: "There is a poem which my dad translated from English to Hindi to teach the students of a slum. He works with them in the evenings to educate those kids." The original lyrics are the English ones.


Bhoomika wrote: "Here he changed the name of 'Johnny' to 'Guddu' - a common Indian nickname. And he changed the 'sugar' to 'Ladoo', yet again a common Indian sweet."
