Indian Fairy Tales ebook: EPUB met Adobe-DRM

This book is a representative collection of twenty-nine Fairy Tales of India. Take a literary tour through India's rich folk tale tradition in this comprehensive volume by historian and folklorist Joseph Jacobs.These Indian tales resemble the stories that flourished in Europe, such as the tales by the Brothers Grimm and by Aesop, although they have an Indian flavor. The collector of these stories contends that they are very old, older than the legends and folk-tales that later flourished in Europe. He believes that India was the originator of this genre and the stories were possibly brought to Europe by the crusaders or other travelers that passed through India. In this book feature 30 stories taken from popular South Asian oral history. How theRaja's Son won the Princess Labam (excerpt)In a country there was a Raja who had an only sonwho every day went out to hunt. One day the Rani, his mother, said tohim, "e;You can hunt wherever you like on these three sides; butyou must never go to the fourth side."e; This she said because sheknew if he went on the fourth side he would hear of the beautifulPrincess Labam, and that then he would leave his father and motherand seek for the princess.The young prince listened to his mother, andobeyed her for some time; but one day, when he was hunting on thethree sides where he was allowed to go, he remembered what she hadsaid to him about the fourth side, and he determined to go and seewhy she had forbidden him to hunt on that side. When he got there, hefound himself in a jungle, and nothing in the jungle but a quantityof parrots, who lived in it. The young Raja shot at some of them, andat once they all flew away up to the sky.

If you desert me like this, I willtell the Princess Labam."e;Then the parrots all flew back to their Raja,chattering. The prince was greatly surprised, and said, "e;Why,these birds can talk!"e; Then he said to the parrots, "e;Who isthe Princess Labam? Where does she live?"e; But the parrots wouldnot tell him where she lived. "e;You can never get to the PrincessLabam's country."e; That is all they would say.The prince grew very sad when they would not tellhim anything more; and he threw his gun away, and went home. When hegot home, he would not speak or eat, but lay on his bed for four orfive days, and seemed very ill.At last he told his father and mother that hewanted to go and see the Princess Labam. "e;I must go,"e; hesaid; "e;I must see what she is like. Tell me where her countryis."e;"e;We do not know where it is,"e; answeredhis father and mother."e;Then I must go and look for it,"e; saidthe prince...
