Every time a baby is born here, the mother composes a lullaby that becomes a unique identity of the child for life! What’s more, the lullaby has no words. It is a tune, a kind of babble or a hum that only the villagers are able to recognize and understand. Each one of the 700 villagers have their unique ‘identity caller tune or hum’ and lasts anywhere from half-a-minute to a minute.
