Folklore Imprints in North East India

Folklore Imprints in North East IndiaBy Desmond L. Kharmawphlang

About the Book:
“Folklore Imprints in North East India” is a collection of essays of relatively new thinking and perception about folklore which has been influenced by engagements with attempts to formulate theoretical positions about it. This project assumes importance because the future of Folkloristics in this part of the world is dependent on an approach inspiring professional appraisal of the immanent cultural material we call ours. This book is dedicated to all those who have kept alive the process and resource of tradition and celebrated its wealth through sacred memory.
