Here’s an age-old Urdu cultural game called Chhum Chhum Chhum. It takes 4 people and a certain kind of rhythm to make this work. You may recognize this kind of chanting and clapping with similar activities across various cultures! This particular chant was made possible by the students from the Government Girls Secondary School, Gizri. The students include: Divia Babulal, Radhika Babulal, Hira Ashfaq and Yasmin Jumma Khan.

Lyrics:

Chhum chhum chhum
Aath anay ki chalian
Aath anay ka paan

Chal meray ghoray Hindustan
Hindustan ki pehlay gulli
Pehlay gulli may Liaquat Ali
Liaquat AliĀ  ko goli lagi
Saari duniya ronay lagi

Rotay rotay bhook lagi
Khalo beta moom phali
Moom phali may daana nahin
Hum Tumharey Nana nahin

Nana gayee Dilli (Delhi)
Dilli sey laye billi

Billi ney diyay bachay
Allah mian sachay!

Sachay sachay jayengey
bhai ki dulhan layengey
bhai ki dulhan kali
Sau nakhray wali

Eik nakhra tooth gaya
Bhai ka moo sooj gaya!
