Sheila ki jawani

“What is your name?” I asked a preschooler boy.
“My name is Sheila.” He replied confidently

Should the songs like Sheila ki jawani be banned for children or should be taught like nursery rhymes as they are easy to remember than one’s own name? ;)


  1. well the question is more like HOW will we ban..


  2. Even if such songs are will find some way to get hooked to it.Its human tendency.The more we are told to not to do something,the more we are inclined to do the same.

  3. my four year old sings this song thou he is born in US but seen few times on tv sings in his own American style..
    "o ya shelia ..sheila ki jevani "
    which is hilarious to me!
    its ok kids will forget with time!

  4. Chandrika,

    Why blame poor Katrina or the kid? Harman has so rightly pointed out that in due course of time kids will forget and move on to something else.

    Take care

  5. Instead of banning, let parents spend more time with kids
