The myths and legends presented here are all new field collections. The purpose of the book is twofold. First it will try to correct the popular urban belief or the belief of the educated elitist belief to be exact that our tribal people are ignorant uneducated and uncultured and that the little culture etc. they have is the gift of the mainstream civilization. And second it will attempt to bring out the richness of tribal culture carried in their myths and legends and to establish its antiquity in the context of the prime civilizations of the world the Mesopotamian the Babylonian the Hindu the Egyptian the Greek and the Judeo Christian. The book introduces a competitive reading to evaluate degrees of being civilized if such things are possible. Finally it examines myths as a fossil field which is layered and in which ancient facts are trapped and held as fossils. The book suggests ways of identifying recovering and studying these fossils in order to construct the tribe's prehistory and ethos. Printed Pages: 316.
