Description
Introduction

A small pocket of a Marathi dialect is found in Cochin, far to the south of the present major area of this Indo-Aryan language, in the midst of the Dravidian block. It is spoken by the Gaud Sarasvat community as their home language. This form of speech is closely connected with the Konkani dialect of the South Kanara district and thus forms one extreme end of this language which is spread along the western coast of India, covering the states of Maharashtra, Mysore and Kerala.

The following dialectal material was collected from an educated speaker of the language. He is a young man of thirty years and is educated in Malayalam and English. He speaks both these languages fluently and has studied Sanskrit as his special subject. Most of his time he has lived in Cochin proper. At home he speaks usually the form of speech represented in these stories. He has given them in the usual colloquial style. They were recorded on tape and then transcribed from them.

The stories given here are well-known. They are known to him from different sources including European literature as well. Hence they cannot be used for the purpose of a folklore study of either the inhabitants of Cochin or even of the small community which speaks this dialect. Their usefulness is confined only to their linguistic study.

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!

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
