There is a very beautiful song in Tamil regarding this PUMPKIN.

It was taught to me when I was studying First Std. during 1955-56. Still I remember that. I am reproducing it now:

பறங்கிக்காயைப் பறித்து

பட்டையெல்லாம் சீவி

பொடிப்பொடியாய் நறுக்கி

உப்புக் காரம் போட்டு

எண்ணெயிலே தாளித்து

இன்பமாக ருசிப்போம்.

இன்னும் கொஞ்சம் கேட்போம்

தந்தால் சிரிப்போம்

தராவிட்டால் அழுவோம்!

Yes ... Leela. It is a very good Tamil rhyme for small children.

It took me to my childhood days.
Still I remember that poem.

I am glad to know that you are able to read it.

Very Happy ... With Best Wishes...
