Music and songs are inherent to any culture and ours in no different. There is no dearth of rhymes and songs written for children, some so old that nobody even knows how they originated. Bollywood or Indian film industry has also given us numerous evergreen songs, patriotic songs and lullabies for children.
When my daughter was a baby, two things really used to soothe her down whenever she was upset. One was stories and the other was music. I selected songs for children and stored them on my phone so that I could play them whenever my daughter wanted to hear those songs. Today, I am listing down 30 Bollywood songs which are our favourite and we loved them yesterday and still love them today.
