This work captures the history of the Indian people, for they are based on actual persons, places and things.

Unlike myths, with their function of prescribing behavior within the social order, legends merely describe secular history - even though the divine and super natural may figure in them. At the same time they embody the passion and the charm, as well as the generosity of the inventive Indian imagination.
