Preface

Superstitions would be similar in different countries. But with variations, folklores are quite typical of each country. all very colourful and interesting. Folklore. by nature is traditional. All the traditional aspects of life including customs, beliefs, behaviour. drama. dances. art, painting and sculpture of past times of a particular area are the subject matter of its Folklore. Folk literature includes those loves which do not have a physical existence. but find expression through language; oral or written. Folk beliefs, superstitions and all non-literary elements. some of which are verbal. also belong to the non -material group. They find expression through movements of the body and in the songs.

Folklore can serve to validate a culture as well as transmit a culture's morals and values. The theme can also be the root of many cultural types of music. Perspectives on folklore will differ from region to region. Any culture will be viewed differently from the outside and from the inside.

Kerala's rich tollgates are populated with real life heroes who more often have super-natural powers and include the legendary king Mahabali to the eccentric Naranath Bhranthan. Folklore originates from the rhythm of real life and the hopes and aspirations of the common people. Kerala's folklore. mixed with mythologies and legends. is a reflection of the reality of life experiences.

This book will take you to an expedition through some of the folk arts of Kerala, our good old days, full of rich traditions and cultural rhythms of lives which we have lost somewhere on our may to the sickening and hectic pace of modern day living.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
