Description

Here are tales from different parts of the country, from followers of different faiths; stories of kings and commoners, tribal people and townsmen. Included in this collection are stories, painstakingly culled and thoughtfully crafted, from the Mahabharata (‘Shiva’s Anger’ and ‘Shakuntala’); the Jataka (‘The Hare in the Moon’ and ‘The Crane and the Crab’) and from regional folklore (‘The Tiger-King’s Gift’ and ‘The Happy Herdsman’). With detailed annotations on the sources of each of these stories, Tales and Legends from India showcases the unique and wonderful ethos of India, as told by its most beloved storyteller, Ruskin Bond.
