Stories from India
Vayu Naidu, Rebecca Gryspeerdt
(Hodder Wayland, July 20, 2000)
The storyteller is a second-generation immigrant from the Indian subcontinent, and immersed in the Indian tradition of storytelling. He combines ghost stories, creation myths, hero stories, traditional tales and tales in a modern setting. From the story of the highwayman who becomes a mouthpiece for the story of the gods, to the tale of pichalipairi, the reversed-feet demon, these stories reflect the different religions and cultures of the Indian subcontinent.
