It’s a very good book for those who show interest in Indian tales and legends. Or/and the mythology. It has got some really good tales which one doesn’t get to hear about commonly. And also I liked it because I got the detailed stories of some of the most commonly known tales, for instance Shakuntala, which I had known vaguely about but had always wanted to know properly. It was like a nostalgic trip, which ended up adding fresh memories. The book consists of beautifully made illustrations of characters and scenes, a very pleasing aspect. Writing Style: Ruskin Bond is the most delightful writer Indian literature has come across.

Most of these tales "have their roots in a fear of the unpredictability we face in life," wrote Alexandre Daguet in 1872 in his Traditions et légendes de la Suisse romande.
