Twinkle, twinkle, little star, How I wonder what you are ?

Travelling by train after long time, It has been 1 year I went to home for last time a Long time gap with my parents. It happens when you are working out of your state especially in IT Company. Now a day not writing technical article much, it is not that suddenly I dislike the job of writing otherwise how I am writing in moving train where it is tough to grip keyboard in vibration.  The reason behind not writing is something else, busy in another hobby, which I enjoy as like as writing. Some other day we will discuss the story. J
Oh, let us come in actual point, why I am writing this article.? “Accent is really needed to express word”, yes just experience in reality.

The subject seems very silly to you but I did not think on it much.  I never studied in English medium school in my early carrier.  This is not my regret, why?  Let me disclose.
When I was student of II or III class (primary school) few persons who were running English medium school at that time, came to our house and started to provoke my father to send me in their English medium school.

My father denied their proposal and said, Hey see, being a student of Bengali medium in my entire carrier I became English teacher (Yes, he is now retired English teacher) and if my son is really interested he could became anything by reading in Bengali medium. No one can stop him.

Yes, father’s prediction is partially correct. I never interested in English from my childhood but interested in technology and programming, especially when I started to learn “C” in my college days. My first love- “C” programming.
Oh, going out of topic, so as said I never studied in English medium so English poems for children like “Johni-Johni - Yes papa”, “Twinkle Twinkle little starts “were not much familiar to me at the same age.

I heard those, might be after 10 years later from its perfect age to study and only know the lines not inner meaning, without accent.
 From yesterday, one family is travelling with me in same compartment. There is one kid in this family (yes, kinder garden school going age). At morning, one uncle is talking to the kid and trying to listen English poem from her, which she has learned in school.
The kid was chanting but no accent. Uncle was teaching proper accent and it was nice to hear.
Jhoni –Johni  !  Yes papa  ..?
Eating sugar?
No papa…!!!
In addition, the Twinkle, Twinkle one.
Twinkle, Twinkle little star… How I wonder? What you are? – Yes how I can wonder what you are?

where ISRO , NASA  don’t know who you are ? haha..
I am sure; the little girl trying to copy uncle’s accent without understands the real meaning. When she will understand, maybe she too will write another blog in another train when it will rain outside and thunderstorm will slow down the train’s speed just like now.

 Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!

When the blazing sun is gone,
When there's nothing he shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, through the night.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!

In the dark blue sky so deep
Through my curtains often peep
For you never close your eyes
Til the morning sun does rise
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are

Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are
