Treasury of Indian Folklore
This collection of Indian folktales has a wide geographic spread. Depending on which area of India one is examining, the tales demonstrate the different non-Indian world influences. The tale of Goa, a former Portuguese colony, shows Christian influences, the tales of northeastern regions are akin to those of Tibeto-Chinese Buddhist countries, and the tales of the northwestern regions are akin to those found in the Middle East countries. Like other universal human characteristics, simplicity, modesty, courage, patience, intelligence and honest effort are greatly valued in these folktales.
