About the book: A collection of children’s verses. These rhymes, the author states, had originally been written for entertaining children and are being published as a book on the request of his friends. He has maintained an easy and lucid language to suit the needs of his young readers, and except for the piece on Ramayan at the end which has words with compound characters [juktakkhar], all the other poems are in simple diction . This poem, that very briefly relates the life of the hero from his birth till his coronation, has been included for its moral worth.
