Looking for Lullabies

We don't really want our kids falling asleep to depressing lullabies like 'Rock-a-by Baby', do we? Lines like 'When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall. Down will come baby, cradle and all!' are just plain cruel! Especially when we have a treasure trove of beautiful lullabies in Indian languages that celebrate babyhood in all its glory! 

That's why we're looking for lullabies! We know you loved Karadi Rhymes, and we're working on a book of Karadi Lullabies just for you! We've put together lullabies in various languages - Tamil, Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati, Bengali, Malayalam, Manipuri, Assamese etc., but we're greedy for more! 

So if you remember any lullabies from your childhood (or your adulthood!), send us the words and a translation. If you can sing it, that's even better. Send us an MP3 file. We want as many beautiful Indian lullabies as possible for this audiobook. Won't you help us?
