ENGLISH COUNTING RHYME



 Inki pinki ponki
Father had a donkey
Donkey died
Father cried
Inki pinki ponki


This English rhyme is a familiar one, no doubt about it. But this rhyme is used when one is in a situation of doubt.  WE use this rhyme to

1.      Choose an answer from the given choices.   
2.      To select a person for a particular task


This rhyme is recited with a word to a choice, wherever the rhyme ends, that is the answer. Like- wise   on whom, the rhyme ends that person is supposed to do the task or quit the game. This rhyme is used as a toss in many occasion to decide the openers of the game.

Though there are numerous rhymes in English Language this rhyme has got a special place, and recited by many in various situations. This rhyme is a decider and helps to take a decision in a tight or confused state.

This counting rhyme is taught to children along  with other regular school rhymes. Children too enjoy this and learn very quickly. From the younger age itself they use this counting rhyme in their play time for both indoor and outdoor games. Not only children many adults too use this rhyme a lot.

Hats off to INKI PINKI PONKI
