About the book

This work deals with the important but neglected study of Prakrit narrative Literature. It is the elaborate study spanning over 2000 years from the 6th cent. BC to 15th cent. AD. It gives a vivid account of tales discussing the use of social, religious, magical bird and journey motifs, representing the realistic life with social, cultural, and socio-economic conditions of the common people, delineating their commercial, and educational activities and their objects and nature of worship, god and goddesses, ritual and practices, festivals and ceremonies etc. The linguistic aspects of the book show that the Jain writers gave a new twist to the literature by introducing new ideas. From every viewpoint the book must be of immense help in the reconstruction of cultural history of India.
