4.0 out of 5 stars a must read and a must buy
By Chitra Ahanthem on 29 August 2019
This book is a labour of love: the love to compile folk tales across diverse faiths, communities, tribes, region and scriptures. Bringing together a 188 stories in one volume is not something that sounds like an easy task but that’s what comes in this collection: I dare say, this is like a Collector’s Edition of myths and folktales of India. It has been exhaustively written and can almost intimidate the reader in you with its sheer volume and appearance (it is a Hardback edition) but believe me, this is a treasure trove that tells you just how much of a cultural diversity we have in our country.

The stories in this collection are under four broad categories: Roots and rhizome, that looks at the creation of the world; A Thousand petals, a section in which beings in the world grow, procreate, love, lusts, creates, feels, desires, fights, bonds, destroy, fight, suffers; The Seeded Pod, that covers death and endings and finally, The Lotus which looks at the spirituality aspect of life and death.
At 539 pages, the book might look like a tough one to crack but believe me, reading the stories takes one to the delight we felt when we heard stories being narrated to us by the elders in our family. I will recommend that you get this book: it will surely appeal to you and every one in the family regardless of age.
