Mumbai Railway Police’s letter issued earlier this month stated that Lashkar-e-Taiba is planning to attack railway stations and hotels in the city shortly, possibly similar to 26/11 terror strike. The letter has also cautioned that approx 10 terrorists may take the sea route and enter the city.

It was also stated by the intelligence sources that a “generic alert” was issued to all states few days back, however, there was no mention of the specific targets.

Ever since the BJP-led government took charge of the nation, there have been continuous warnings of a possible Lashkar strike.

This warning came at a point when a top LeT commander, Lakhvi, was released from Prison on Sunday in Pakistan.

The most popular version of the rhyme/lullaby

As children, singing the rhyme Rock A Bye Baby was a fun thing to do. It was a statement of thrill and adventure to imagine a child climbing to the top of a tree and rocking to sleep. Especially in the Indian context, rocking a baby to sleep by attaching the cradle to the tree is quite a common thing. But the origin of this rhyme, or lullaby, seems rooted in other histories.

The most popular notion associated with this lullaby is of women leaving their babies tied to tree branches, rocking to sleep with the wind. It is believed that at the time this lullaby was written, it was inspired by a coloniser who saw the Native American women tie their children in birch bark cradles to the trees. The babies went to sleep rocked by the gusts of wind while the parents went about their tasks.
