Friendship Day Sing Along!

What are friends made of?

This Friendship Day (1 August) we dip into Talking Tales from Tulika, our lively collaboration with Spotify, to discover the secret to that bond of joy. The specially composed lyrics of the songs are from the podcasts Best Buddies and Helping Friends based on favourite books many of you will recognise.

Ready to sing? Here we go!

BEST BUDDIES Friends aren’t always like each other, are they? But that’s what friendship is all about, isn’t it? Here are three pairs of them – Shabana and Kajri, Aana and Chena, Tiji and Cheenu. All Best Friends Forever! CLICK HERE TO PLAY THE SONG LYRICS BELOW TO SING ALONG! Best buddies you and I We sing and dance together Best buddies you and I We play and laugh together We make a good team Like cookies and cream Or chutney and dosa Or chai and samosa! You make me laugh when I am sad I give a hug when you feel bad Best buddies you and I We always care and share!

With every branch And every stalk I really believe Trees can talk. They move in the wind And swish and sway I know it, I see it Every day. Go out and try Have a tree chat Then give it a hug And even a pat Surely you'll see That as time goes The friendship will last The friendship will grow!
