Quantity:

The great epics like Ramayana and Mahabaratha are known by each and every scholar and reader, even illiterate people and village folk know of these two epics- more often than not, they know the stories very well.

But in India, regional folk epics remain largely unexplored. In South India, especially in Karnataka, numerous epics exist and yet not one can be placed within the same realm of familiarity as the Ramayana and Mahabaratha.

Karnataka is not short in variety of cultural complexities, traditions and rituals. In Karnataka, the Coorg district is popularized as a second Kashmir and is populated with different cultures and peoples. For instance the Kodavas culture, traditional songs, riddles, language, and dress pattern are entirely different from the culture of others from the same area. 

This book contains essays on many aspects of folklore and exhibits the variety and important Karnataka Folk rituals and attitudes. Here focus is mainly on the Coorg and North Karnataka folklore. These essays are both supplementary, interdisciplinary and also comparative and analytical. This is the first time this topic has been properly discussed and in its writing the author shows a sentimental touch towards Kaveri river folklore.
