Awadhi FolktalesRakhi M. Soman brings to you eight rare and intriguing tales from Uttar Pradesh, the Awadh of the distant past. She tells these stories, hundreds of years old, in a way that revives the unmistakable flavour of Awadh, a large and sprawling colourful culture. Its people, simple yet sharp and witty, their beliefs and superstitions, and their fantasies and follies, are all subtly woven in the telling of these tales.
