What’s wrong with the BJP, I wonder. Why are they wasting their energies on such arbit issues? First it was the ban on Fanaa in Gujarat. Now, the Madhya Pradesh Government has decided that nursery children won’t learn “Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star”, “Ba ba Black Sheep” and “Johnny Johnny, Yes Papa” from now on.
The state claims that these rhymes smack of feudal mindsets and that’s why they are being replaced by poems that are inspired by nationalism.
Says state education minister, Narottam Mishra, “We have removed some poems from the school syllabus. The decision was taken as our committee feels nationalist poems need to be taught to school kids.”
