This charming collection of folk tales by C.A. Kincaid recounts the inci­dents and encounters of certain popular religious and political leaders of the province of Sind. In keeping with the nature of all folklores, these have been embellished by generations of storytellers, and herein lies its appeal. A legacy of the past, these tales that have been preserved to this day and reflect basic human nature. They have all the ingredients that make them evergreen: mysticism and mystery, love and lust, loyalty and treachery, cowardice and courage, myth and wisdom.
This book also contains a short section entitled ‘Round About Nasik’ which narrates some of the mythologies associated with Nasik: how the river Godavari came into existence; of the ‘rekha’ that Lakshman had drawn to protect Sita; and of the story of the Kapileshwar Temple.
Written in a lucid language and style Folk Tales of Sind and Guzarat, can be enjoyed by both the young and the old, and will make the reader experience a gamut of emotions, from joy to dismay, from relief to shocked astonishment.
