Folk culture is understood to be the expression of homogenized social life as opposed to the multi-layered urban life. The book is concerned particularly with folk tales, songs, riddles, proverbs, and rites of Manipur (situated on the northeast corner of India). The book furnishes considerable information on the beliefs and practices, legends and tales, lyrics and songs, customs and traditions of this part of India. It also includes English rendering of Manipuri folklore material and dwells on points which the researchers can draw upon profitably.
