This volume is a collection of Bengali folk tales. Among the stories of princes, devata (deities) and bloodthirsty rashash (demons), stories of women's lives and images emerge. Women and their goddeses bring to life not only the nurturing Bengali motherland itself, but: Uma, the daughter and potential wife; Parvati, the young bride and potential mother; Kali, the mother at her most fearsome, who can take life, as well as create it; and Durga, the Divine Protectress and slayer of demons.
