Awadhi Folk Tales
Description
About The Book

WHOM would you like to meet-the ghost living on the banks of the Gomti, or the snooty Spring? Or would you rather follow a blue horse galloping heavenward? Would it be more fun to discover how a dead body. dumped into the river kept coming back?

About The Author

Rakhi M. Soman brings to you eight rare and intriguing tales from Uttar Pradesh, the Awadh of the distant past. She tells these stories, hundreds of years old, in a way that revives the unmistakable flavour of Awadh, a large and sprawling colourful culture. Its people, simple yet sharp and witty, their beliefs and superstitions, and their fantasies and follies, are all subtly woven in the telling of these tales. Vandana Bist's beautiful illustrations add to the pleasure of reading these stories, lending spice to the characters and their lives. And so the stories, originally told in Awadhi, move through generations of children, and across time ... never losing their nuances, forever becoming more and more fun!

Rakhi M. Soman is a writer, translator and editor. She holds workshops in creative writing and theatre.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
