These ten wacky stories in Feathers, Fools, and Farts: Manipuri Folktales Retold from Manipur, perched on India's border with Myanmar, are not for scaredy-cats. Nor for those of you who do not enjoy a hearty laugh or a good cry. And if you try to copy the foolishness of the characters, animal and human, in these folktales, you just might turn into a tiger, get stung by a swarm of bees, or even get poo'ed on. If, however, you believe in strange romances, admire bravery, and like magic and sorcery, this book is for you, wherever you are.
L. SOMI ROY is the author of And That Is Why: Manipuri Myths Retold (2021), the precursor to Feathers, Fools, and Farts: Manipuri Folktales Retold. A cultural conservationist, curator, and translator, he has curated film for museums in New York like the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and Asia Society. THANGJAM HINDUSTANI (TANI) is a linguist by training and an online advertising specialist by profession. A former corporate executive, she has a PhD in Linguistics and maintains a blog about Manipuri folktales.
