about

“Oh Baba, please, next
time you go to the city,
bring me back a doll!”
This is a very popular
song from Pakistan.
This version tells about
the poor inhabitants of
remote villages. Men
regularly leave their
homes for months on
end to work in the city
in order to feed their
families. When they
return, they bring
amazing gifts that cannot
be found in the village,
exciting the children’s
fantasies about what
fabulous places the cities
must be. But in asking
her daddy to bring
back a doll, the girl is
really asking him not to
forget that she exists.
