The folk tales in this anthology are in vogue in the wide expanse of the Rabha inhabited areas of Assam. They are more or less similar to the folk tales prevalent among other tribes and ethnic groups of the North Eastern region of India in that they have also some main genres such as supernatural or romantic tales, animals tales, humorous tales, tales of folk history, religious tales, tricksters tales, etiological or explanatory tales, traditional tales, etc. Rabha folk tales, like their counterparts in other northeastern languages, are, in fact, epitomes of simple and rustic ways of rural life in which there are abundant expressions of weal and woe, excitement, religious belief, superstition and even magic and sorcery. Coming down from generation after generation, Rabha folk tales are vibrant with wonderful ideas and imagination. PRINTED PAGES: 112.
