One day, when they were grown two fine young men, Prince Majnun said to his father, "Husain Mahamat and I should like to go and hunt." His father said they might go, so they got ready their horses and all else they wanted for their hunting, and went to the Phalana country, hunting all the way, but they only founds jackals and birds.

The Raja of the Phalana country was called Munsuk Raja, and he had a daughter named Laili, who was very beautiful; she had brown eyes and black hair.

One night, some time before Prince Majnun came to her father's kingdom, as she slept, Khuda sent to her an angel in the form of a man who told her that she should marry Prince Majnun and no one else, and that this was Khuda's command to her.

These tales collected from Asia in the early 20th century are quite different from the Grimm's and Aesops tales I grew up with (though in an appendix in the rear of the book the author claims most European Fairy Tales originated in India).

I read this at the same time as Folk Tales Of Bengal -- some comparisons included.

A number of these will be recognizable to readers familar with European fairy tales as tale types, but little more than that. The differences are plentiful, of which the easiest to note is that the kings habitually...more

.حكايات شعبية من أهل السند وبلاد البهارات والعاج، في مقدمة المؤلف يتحدث عن تشابه القصص الشعبية بين اوروبا وبلاد السند ، وفسر الأمر أن أصل أغلب الحكايات كانت من الهند، الفلكلور الهندي مُمتع لأنه قريب جدا من حكايات ألف ليلة وليلة ، وكليلة والدمنة الفارسية، إلاأن الإختلاف في المعتقدات كفارق بسيط.
