1. Introduction

My Twin babies Prathiksha & Priyanka are studying in the Lower Kinder Garden (LKG) at Velammal Matriculation School, Muggappair, Chennai, Tamil Nadu.

Prathikhsa & Priyanka

The School has given them a Rhymes CD , I thought if I create a Podcast with the lyrics ,it would be easy for us to teach them. This is how this idea sprang up.

As things went on fine and the Podcast has also come good, I thought it will be useful for all parents like me to their kids. Hope this small podcast is of some use to you all.
