  • These folk tales feature giants and demons, Bungadeo, the God of Mercy and Bandhu Achaju, the Tantric Master. A few of them belong to the reigns of particular kings of Nepal and as such they can be dated. And almost all of them illuminate some aspect of life in and around Kathmandu.
    Apart from being of interest to the anthropologist and the sociologist, these folk stories provide pleasant reading for the layman. Who would not like to read about how a housewife, whose husband was eaten away by a giant, outwitted him and maneuvered his death or how a sparrow compelled a king to search for a pea which it had lost? Even people with sophisticated tastes will enjoy most of these tales.
