I wrote these interesting and amusing, phenomenon oriented folk tales which are presented in
small social assemblies, by keeping in mind the idea of preserving the essence
of social ethics and the environment of respective times.
Of course the interests and the way of living of modern people are changed significantly
with the times. Though the value of moral power is still as high as it was
(in the modern people as well, due to the culture we live in). Same way the attraction
of folklores or folk stories exploring the pride of life by enlightening the qualities
like Love, Bravery, Dedication, Keeping Promises & Ethics; is also as strong as it was.
As there are darkness of merciless savage also reside along with the lights of humanity.
I have acquainted these stuff in prefaces of my previous collections of folk tales (Short Stories)
- Sorathi Rasgatha (two parts -

>part 1 and http://www.harilalupadhyay.org/bookdetails/Sorathi_Rasgatha__1.htm"
title = "Sorathi Rasgatha Part 2 | Short Story Collection in Gujarati by Harilal Upadhyay"
>part 2) – under the title "Varta Ane Vartakar" (Story And the Story Writer)
and "E Rasaal Jeevtar" (Those Charming Lives). All that folk stories by me is accepted
with respect by the readers, and Charan (A clan well known for its style of story telling,
bravery, knowledge of folklores and command on the words) friends, who are the real
experts of folklores. I am glad to present one more set of interesting folk tales
in the form of a book. I am thankful to the publisher as well.
