Folk tales, more stories and short stories have been an integral part of human life from the very beginning of civilization. The journey of the folk tales is like that of flowing water body that trickles off its source and streams down being joined on its way by rivulets to become a river to join the sea. The story doesn’t end there. It again travels back riding the clouds and rains down over its source or on some nearby hill.

Besides entertaining, these tales reflect the social history of civilization. There is a sweet mixture of sentiments, realities of everyday life, ideals and moral values.
