Chyawanprash Champ!

Mummy, mummy are you there?
See..teddy fell down the stairs!
It's not good, it's not fair
His legs are weak,can we get a new pair?

Come my darling, let's pick him up
And here is your milk in your superman cup!
Not feeling sleepy are you little man?
Oh my, you have been out too long, look at your tan!

Coz I am strong mama, I can play all day long
But why can't teddy play along?'s because you have been a good boy
And you always take the magic potion with joy!

Yummy! Can I have some now?
Please please please mummy, now now now!
Oh you adorable naughty thing
After you finish your milk,and listen to this story with your eyes tinkling!

Yippie! I love you so much mummy
Hey teddy, come here you dummy
We are listening to a story
With kings and queens.Mama? Is there a fairy?

Haha..yes, we can include one too
Coz it's a magical strory, which is true!
It's about the magic potion you take
Let me tell you how it was made!

Long,long ago there was a child like you
Chyawana was his name, he never liked his mother's stew!
He grew up to be a mighty rishi
But his health was a little mushy!

He kept neglecting it!And wanted only to meditate!
And out of fear, no one could berate.
As it happens, he got a wife
Who was so beautiful, among the gods she caused strife!

Chyawana didn't take an apple a day
And so he couldn't keep two pesky doctors at bay!
Dr. Ashwini and Ashwini  were their names
They couldn't keep their eyes off Chyawana's dame!

But his wife was a clever little lady
She could see the doctors were a little shady!
She decided to play a neat little trick
And convinced the doctors to treat Chyawana, who was really sick!

Ofcourse they couldn't say no to her 
And they cured Chyavana then and there!
Did you know how they did it?
They created the first batch of your magic potion, that's what they did!

So pleased was he, he gave it his name
Chyawanprash it was named and grew it's fame!
So strong and powerful he became
Even Indra's vajra he could tame!

From then you see, every mother made a vow
To feed Chyawanprash to her child anyhow!
All your heroes relished the sticky sweet goo
Bheema, Arjuna,  and Hanuman  too!

Will everyone become strong like them mama
If they always take a spoonful without the drama?
Yes my sweetheart smiled mama
And though I don't admit it, I quite like your little drama!

Mama..if all the kids know this story
Will they take Chyawanprash daily?
Yes my child, thats the idea
To build a stronger, healthier and more immune India!

Will we all be champs then
And strong like our ancient  super men?
Yes my child , you will be
And none would be happier than me.

I love you mama, and the story too
And I want to be a Chyawanprash champ too
Oh yes! I want you to be one
India will then be second to none!

Tasty, gooey is my magic potion
Coming in different flavors and  options
Bring in more new flavors Dabur!
Strawberry, chocolate,honey and ginger!
