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.
