About the Book

Folk literature and folk culture are being eclipsed by ever expanding Industrial culture. It is high time to save and preserve them, as they are our ancestral heritage' and Folk tales are backbones of that philosophy.
The present collection reflects beliefs, disbeliefs, dogmas, imagination and culture of Haryana, a rich State in North India. Most of these stories are related to birds and animals. Entertainment, enjoyment and development of imagination are the aims of these stories. It is hoped that readers will welcome the book.
