Tales of mystic places and mysterious people pervade the pages of this book to fascinate, educate and fill our hearts with pleasurable emotions. Tales of princes and princesses, their clandestine lovers, tales of greed and jealousy are all eloquently told.
Steeped in ancient history and culture they open up new vistas to brighten up this seemingly drab and dull world of ours. Many of these tales are simple and easily understood, whilst others are more sophisticated and carry a hidden and deeper message for the reader.
Taken originally from a Sanskrit collection this version of these particular tales was first translated and adapted in Persian and then re-translated into Hindustani. Their present form thus provides us with a great blend of many cultures and beliefs. All, however, help the reader understand and delight in one of the most fascinating of ancient civilizations.
