Description

India is the original home of fiction. It was fiction, rather than poetry or drama, which first put India on the literary map of the world. Stories of Indian origin were told and retold in distant corners of Asia and Europe. They were picked up by the Persians and the Arabs, who passed them on to the Turks.

Ancient Indian fiction offers a diversity of theme, atmosphere and situation unequalled in world literature. This selection encompasses myth, legend, mystery and fantasy.
