The Khasi are a range of mountains in India. Welsh missionaries opened schools there and apparently the Welsh National Anthem is still the "school song" in a few of them.

It's therefore not stretching too much of a point to say that Indian children are taught to sing in the Khasi.

I didn't realise Andy Pandy was a boy as a a child.  

Is there not a clue in the name?

S'pose could be short for Andrea as opposed to Andrew.

I was a small child, and lets face no one dressed like that especially not boys

I never gave it a thought as a small kid as far as I can remember.
