A collection of 26 folk tales from South India, including some that are found throughout India and taken from classical literature such as the Panchatantra, and others specific to South India.  Most of them are fun little moral tales, and are full of magic, giving a feeling comparable to the Arabian Nights. A great collection of tales and quite scarce.
