Folktales arise from man’s need to communicate and share his daily experiences. The stories gathered in this book also arose from the need to communicate to the younger audience and to familiarize them of the cultural affinity between India and the other nations of Asia.

As the reader enjoys the tales, he learns also about the oneness of the world.
