This book is a collection of some of the better known folk tales of the Dogras – a proud people inhabiting the region extending from Jammu to Himachal Pradesh in north India.

In rendering into English these humorous, hearts warming and occasionally sad snippets of the Dogra way of life, Suman K. Sharma has been successful in maintaining the flavour of the original tales in Dogri. Supplemented with evocative illustrations these tales should lease the child in every one of us.
