Machli jal ki rani hai Jeevan uska paani hai Haath lagao dar jaye Baar nikalo mar jaye

This is a new project for me! I created this blog so that there would be a place to share Indian/Pakistani nursery rhymes. My husband and I are expecting our first child and I wanted to have a catalog of all the nursery rhymes I grew up with along with the ones that I never knew. Friends and family have been helping me collect the few that I have posted so far. Please add poems or rhymes that you grew up with so that our children can enjoy them too!
There are no sources for who wrote the rhymes or where they orignated from, if you can provide that information as well that would be great! Otherwise, this is like the desi version of Mother Goose, except she would be known as Mata Baduck, maybe?
