Limbu Folklore: A Collection of Oral Folklore from the Limbu People of Northeast Nepal
Description
About the Book:

Limbu Folklore by Melanie Pappadis is a first hand study of the traditions and culture of one of the many ethnic groups that constitute the Nepal nation. This survey traces the origins and the gradual development of these people within the framework of the greater Nepalese nation.

Working closely with Nepali scholars the author visited and lived with the Limbu people over an extended period. She has enjoyed their hospitality and observed them at work and play. Her study is a candid compilation of their complicated folklore delving deep into their socio-religious activities. Through this study she has been able to discover their history, tradition life-style, eating habits, religious beliefs, social traits and close association with their adopted habitat. It also shows the inner aspects of the life of the Limbu people and how these have remained undisturbed over the years allowing them to maintain their individual identity within the whole gamut of culture that have coagulated into the collage of what we now know as Nepal.

About the Author:

Melanie Pappadis studied with the School for International Training in Nepal in 1993 and completed her Independent Research Project: to collect and translate Limbu oral folklore. She later moved to Cuenca, Ecuador where she spent time teaching English. Originally from Chicago, Illinois, she is currently living and teaching in New York City where she obtained her M.F.A. in Creative Writing from the New School. She has completed her first novel and is continuing to work on translation projects.

Testimonials

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.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.

Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.

The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
