People are aware of two kinds of literature: Classical and Folklore. They respond to literature differently. Folk literature has been neglected by traditional scholars while classical one becomes famous! Modern thinking has made them understand the importance of folklore which is created by common people while classical one is produced by enlightened people. Folklore makes younger better than older children when classical literature jighlights older better than younger ones which produces little confidence in the young. So Folklore needs a great book to enlighten all the people. Prof. N. Bhakthavathsala Reddy deserves this book sevoted to him.
