Bengali Household Tales (Volume I)
Bengali Household Tales (Volume I)
Description

Back of the Book

The stories that have been gathered between the covers of this book are English translations of Bengali folklore. The translator has very credibly reproduced then in English, retaining the authentic flavour of the original. Any sensitive reader would immediately feel wonderfully nostalgic on reading them. They are reminiscent of the bedtime stories that one has heard sometime or the other especially from one’s grandmother on a quiet and cosy evening, tucked warmly in bed.

Both adults and children will find this book evoking a pleasant sense of serenity and happiness. The art of story telling finds a refined expression in folk tales. They are also an effective means to culturally educate. The fact that these stories have been intentionally written in easy and ordinary conversational English adds to their charm and wide appeal. The footnotes are a storehouse of information on this genre of literature.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
