About the Book

Tamil Nadu has rich cultural heritage including folklore rooted to traditional values and beliefs. The present book is an attempt to record this treasure-trove of the state in a lucid style and is, thus, a veritable document on its rural populace - their songs, dramas, dances, social and religious customs, oral literature etc. The Tamil edition of the book, translated by the author himself, was awarded by the Tamil Nadu government.

About the Author:

S. M. L. Lakshmanan Chettiar has been one of the leading writers of travelogue in the Tamil language, with one on Australia being awarded by the Tamil Academy. He authored a number of Encyclopaedias on different districts of the state. A graduate of the Presidency College, Chennai, he took a diploma in journalism, and has authored and edited a number of articles and publications in the English language.

Testimonials
Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
