Logic Learning in Garhwali Children Folk Songs

Bhishma Kukreti

The mode of reasoning is ‘Logic’. The Indian folk literature has been very rich in teaching logic to the next generation by old generation. This is the reason that philosopher Gautam created ‘ Nyay Darshan’ more than two thousand years back.

In Garhwal, there is tradition of teaching reasoning to children from early age. Garhwalis have been creating riddle poems for their children from the time the humanity settled in Garhwal. The following two children folk poems are proof that Garhwalis were conscious about teaching logic to their children from early age

The songs are having four lines in a poem and the language is simple that children could understand easily
