Folklore of the Santal Parganas
Translated by
Cecil Henry Bompas

LibriVox Volume One

Hi again,

Here is another charming collection of folk tales. It is a glimpse of a culture whose folklore I believe LibriVox has not yet explored. Since there are over 200 stories in this collection, I have decided to divide it into eight LibriVox volumes--so as not to drive our wonderful MCs nuts.

Please post a reply here if you would like to claim a chapter to read from this book.
Include:
*your name as you would like it to appear in the LibriVox book catalog listing;
and, if available,
*your Web address.

Thank you!

MariaSC

Maria, I love these folk story collections! Thank you for starting this one! ... I'll MC this for you too (you're always welcome to drive me nuts, but good call on splitting this into volumes =)

And while I'm at it... I'd like to read: 22. XXI. The Magic Cow
...something about a magic cow I can't resist =)

I was looking for information about Santal Parganas and found the following:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santhal_Parganas
http://lucy.ukc.ac.uk/EthnoAtlas/Hmar/Cult_dir/Culture.7866

I'm not sure exactly how to pronounce Santal Parganas correctly, but I'll give it my best try =)

Hi Betsie,

Thanks for claiming #22! (LOL)

...

And thanks for the links to more information about this culture. The preface of the book is also pretty interesting.

As far as pronunciation, I found that if you Google it, Google has a "Definition" link to the "Answers.com" page for Santal with a link to an audio of its pronunciation (sahn tahl). I'm just following my screen reader as far as Parganas (par ga na ss.
