The Folk-Songs of Southern India
Description
From the back of the Book

'There is no better way of discovering the real feelings and ideas of a people than that afforded by the songs that pass from lip to lip in their streets and markets'.
Charles E. Gover

It is almost impossible to come across the early Dravidian folk literature that has not been systematically corrupted or mutilated by the onslaught of Puranic legends and the Brahminical influence. This book attempts to fathom the feelings of the masses by gathering the folk-songs of the Dravidian people. These songs belong to the plains where dwell the Tamil and Telugu people; the Mysore plateau, the home of the Kannada-speaking; hills and valleys of Nilgiris and the Western Ghats, sheltering the tribes of Coorg and the Badagas of Udagamandalam and the low-lying, coastal Kerala that divides the Ghats from the sea. The samples given herein are examples of the excellent vernacular literature that existed during the Dravidian Augustan period.

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
