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 bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.
