Giants and demons, Bungadeo, the God of Mercy, and Bandhu Achaju, the Tantric Master, feature in thirtyone traditional folktales from Nepal. Entertaining and illuminating reading. Several of these stories confirm the old theory of the German orientalist Max Muller about the migration of tales from country to country. The Adivasis of Bihar can find at least half a dozen of them retold with changes of names and places. A couple of them are variations of stories found in distant Vietnam.
