The advent of YouTube has made life easier for the current generation of parents, we must admit. From teaching little toddlers the basics to teaching your preschoolers the right way to brush their teeth, we have all the videos. But have you ever wondered if the videos showcase more of the western culture than ours? We find our kids blissfully unaware of Indian cultures and traditions, but we find them singing rhymes and learning new words- all with a tinge of the Western accent. The Peppa Pig accent seems to be the norm in every household nowadays. As much as we like it, kids do need to connect to our roots as well, don’t you think? If you are nodding in agreement, you will want to tune into Jalebi Street on YouTube.
