There are numerous stories weaved by so many authors and storytellers at present but folk tales still hold an irreplaceable position. The tradition of entrusting morals and culture in a specific society has its origin from the very folk tales relating to that particular culture or society that are carried forth through generations.
The book “Dojang Napong” by the author, Pudom Taku, with his sister Pumu Taku, the co-author, illustrates several folk tales of the land of dawn-lit mountains- Arunachal Pradesh. The fables take the readers to the mystical world of Arunachal Pradesh where you will come across terrifying giants, gruesome witches, and horrifying shapeshifters, etc. The author talks of nature as well as varied themes like trust and betrayal. The author has used several pictures to exemplify the tribal lifestyle and scenes never witnessed before. The relation between the animals, the human beings, and the spirits from the other realm of this universe has been beautifully carved out by Pudom Taku and Pumu Taku.
The book is ready to set a pace on an adventurous journey of folktales and fables by one of the leading publishing houses in India, “Invincible Publishers.” It is also available for pre-order on Amazon!
