Everyone will find a favourite story in this collection of folk-tales and legends. There is the story of Jumman the labourer, who thinks the Qazi of Jaunpur is actually his donkey ...And the strange adventure of Dhania who, stealing out for a midnight snack, gets stuck in honey...Or the account of how a lowly weasel put the mighty Yudhishtir in place...And what happens when Bhim tries to match his strength against that of Hanuman...Culled from all parts of the country, and spanning heaven, earth and the nether world, these stories let us into a world of enchantment, wisdom and loads of fun.
