  • This book is a collection of some of the interesting and fascinating folklore from the West Nepal. In the folktales mentioned here in this book, they have survivals of the primitive conception of the world and the forces of nature. In this connection, it is not easy to distinguish between mythology and folklore, for both represent an early stage of consciousness when mans fancy worked with freedom and was employed to give an explanation of all things. They are largely relics of mans early unrestrained fancy. Those folklore were originally recorded from oral traditions handed down by generations of bards or hurkia. These minstrels used to move about from one region to another, singing these folklore. They were the basic entertainment for the people of those days. Some tales in this collection are similar and some with slightly different versions are found in other countries. They are interesting as they all seem to have evolved from the common source in the past.
