Tales included in this collection are from oral traditions of the people; therefore they are the immaculate versions of the original tale. These tales are retold in a simple and rustic style in order to keep the idiom of the people unblurred.
While selecting these tales, two things were taken into consideration - firstly, these tales should represent almost all the political or geographical regions of India. Secondly, the selection should represent the various folk-narrative forms of India such as legend, fable, astrological tale etc.
