Description

This is an enchanting collection of oral tales that have inspired the popular imagination of India for countless generations. Compiled from a vast array of sources, these 110 tales are by turns harrowing and comic, sardonic and allegorical, mysterious and romantic. Augmented by Ramanujan's definitive introduction and notes, this is an indispensible guide to India's ageless folklore tradition.
