But alas, in recent times, even this bag full of sweets has come already manufactured from the factories of Manchester. Nowadays, fairytales from the West have become almost the sole recourse of our boys.
The Grandmother Companies from our own country are bankrupt. The original sketches were drawn with a fat paint brush and printed using a wooden block by Majumdar. Now, even though all claims to the copyright of the matter printed in Thakurmar Jhuli is outside legal peripheries, yet, publishers maintain the original drawings, however inappropriate it might seem to the global child of modern days in the age of Harry Potter.
This lacunae, it seems, is terminated by the subsequent digital media. But there is also more to digitization of the same collection of stories from Thakurmar Jhuli, which also aids in the process of perpetuation of the anxiety expressed by Tagore a hundred years back.
Zakir Hussain with six stories for children written in Urdu is a good example to show the importance of the survival of folktales across geographical boundaries. The localized flavour and language were their fresh appeal. Another aspect of The Magic Key series of stories is also the fact that these were woven around small towns and village India, written and thus reflecting a time and socio-cultural circumstance away from modern life.
Often some of these realities may not be directly relevant to the children of urbanized modern India, yet they remain to be a prominent part of our lives. These stories, thereby, can act to familiarize these circumstances in a casual manner. Also, some of the ideas reflected through the stories are more universal: a desire for freedom, fulfilling of a promise, pride and its proverbial fall.
Thakurmar Jhuli acts as an important body of code of messages for the punyabati pious , chaste, virtuous femininity with complete devotion to the family on one hand, and also as set of symbols for the correct and wrong methods of existence and the good virtues of life on the other hand.
Rightfully, culture-specific embedded codes and symbols are constructed out of the cultural mosaic and represents man-nature relationships and more often than not- the laws of nature. The symbols of reference as advocated within the audio-visual messages also keep in mind to supplement the main ethos with recent frames of references.
This is an inevitable event to occur in the age of Harry Potter, where people often are oblivious to similar works of older authors such as Enid Blyton.
With the help of modern media and New Media, some of these older authors and their works and other tales from oral tradition have found a place of resurrection, such as the works of J. Tolkien and The Tales from the Arabian Nights. However, though the channel of mass media changes from print to audio- visual inferences, the main reference in all of these New Media versions remains true to its very base, yet subtly supplementing more recent and relevant symbols of references.
However, as mentioned earlier, technological advancement has not tampered with the main messages within the stories which remain true to its very essence, making the collection of Thakurmar Jhuli popular even in recent times.
This not only helps in giving new versions of the old text, but the visual messages add to the essence of sketching these important narratives with the help of media that relate best to a fast-changing global world and also act as a connecting link between the world of oral tradition and written speech within specific localities.
Preserved over a period of time, these narratives serve as instruments of re-inventing culture. They are critical and pleasurable and is an imperative need in a fast-changing and developing global world to bring to the rural and the urban audience - both young and old - a lifelong vision of ethos.
The district has a rich history of folk narratives, including Mymensingh Geetikas, which are ballad-like songs. He was greatly influenced by the vigour and enthusiasm shown by the then great scholar Dineshchandra Sen in the recovery of Bengali folk literature in contemporary times.
The four categories contain six, four, four and three tales and poems respectively. Excerpts of the comments and reviews were included in the following reprinted versions of the book after the first edition and are witnessed even now. These stories are available in print in the form of books with the original drawings of Majumdar. It is an art and craft native to Bengal.

They are often a great work of art and the intricate designs help demonstrate the adroit craftsmanship and skills of the women - who were and still are - the main creators of kantha. The plant is Abrus precatorius L. It is indigenously found throughout India, even at altitudes of 1,m on the outer Himalayas. It is now naturalized in all tropical countries. This plant species is propagated through seeds. The other type of Chhara is the one written and narrated by considerably older children.
This also includes the large proportion of Chharas which surround the explanation to young girls of the importance of marriage - especially originating at a time when the ritual of child marriage was the prevalent norm of the age.
The third type of Chhara surrounds the immense treasure of magical chants which are still used to conjure mystical happenings, including conjuring rains during a drought, curing a person suffering from snake or tiger bites, seeking welfare of a farmer-husband or a fisherman-husband by the womenfolk at home as he goes out to work.
Although by no means exhaustive, this explains fairly well the broader category of the genre of Chhara - having an intrinsic folk element as its basis of origin and also survival. Language- Bengali.

Storytelling has occupied an important place through time in cultures across the globe. The collection in Thakurmar Jhuli is classified into four distinct categories—Tales of adventures Dudher Sagar , Tales of demons Roop Tarashi , Animals and Humorous tales Chang Bang , and Poems explaining the ritual of putting the children to sleep at the end of the stories Aam Sandesh.
This paper attempts to look into the aspects of transmission of these stories through the various media, the messages conveyed thereby and, the importance of the survival of oral tradition through changing media over a period of time. Thakurmar Jhuli is a compilation that is not limited to children alone, but over the years, has found tremendous response amongst the adults as well.
This further tries to examine how these narratives serve as instruments of reinventing culture. Illustrations from the original printed publication is appended to this essay. Storytelling has occupied an important place through time in cultures across the globe and, in each, has attained an important conduit of expression of their integrated socio-cultural ethos.
During the course of my field work in lateritic rural West Bengal, listening with rapt attention to a grandmother Indian Folklore Research Journal, Vol. The baby crow went to a pre-nursery school after having a meal and a bath in the morning. It went to play in the evening and had dinner when the mother served dinner.
Sometimes, the baby crow refused to go to sleep in the afternoon and fell out of the nest and badly injured a foot, because it was being too naughty and not listening to the mother. Then the mother and father crow put a bandage on the wound and scolded the baby crow to not be naughty and always listen to the advice of the parents. He was then troubled with the thought of facing the crocodile the next day when he would come asking for his children.
Being a cunning creature, he formed a plan. Like this, every day, the fox would feast on a child and the next day when the crocodile came to visit, he would just increase the number of appearances of the child shown the last. So the fox ran away into the forest. The next day, when the crocodile came to visit and called for the fox he did not get an answer. Angry and upset, he went in search of the fox and found him near the river where he loved to hunt fish.
The crocodile went and hid in the water. The sly fox immediately rebuked him saying that he made a mistake of catching his walking stick instead of his leg. The foolish crocodile let go of the leg and caught the walking stick immediately, thinking it to be the leg. The fox ran away from the forest forever - never to be seen or heard of again. This story gradually was supplemented with data from my childhood, such as the name of the school, a school bus coming every morning to pick up the students, the teacher giving them homework every day, and the students having drawing classes in school - with bits of information that meant a lot for a child of seven years then thirty years ago.
The floating mass of folklore, being gradually supplemented with regular inputs, varying from region to region and generation to generation, finds new expression in the minds of the audience. Although the previous example cited does not directly associate with the fabled stories from the collection of Thakurmar Jhuli, it is a pointer in the direction of the immense popularity of fantasy stories among children even in modern times - once more authenticating the esteemed recognition of the Harry Potter series J.
Tolkien- of stories in various channels of media - be it the digitized version or the printed publication.
Folklore forms an integral part of culture across regions and time. All the four are collections of fairy tales, folktales, ritual tales, and comical tales respectively. Ramanujan Folktales from India, classified folktales under various plots, such as chain tales, ritual tales, trickster tales, or sibling tales.
Quite distinctly, yet maintaining a simple representation of facts for the young audience, the collection in Thakurmar Jhuli is also classified into four distinct categories: Tales of adventure Dudher Sagar , Tales of demons Roop Tarashi , Animal and Humorous tales Chang Bang , and poems explaining the ritual of putting the children to sleep at the end of the stories Aam Sandesh. From oral tradition to digitized versions of narrative tales, Thakurmar Jhuli has come a long way in its history of years.
Thus, creating a special bond between the storyteller and the audience, the process also acts as a perpetuation of socio-cultural anxieties in the form of changes.
Thus, the two most important aspects to consider regarding the collection of the hundred- year old Thakurmar Jhuli collection are the original narrators - mostly women, and the original listeners - mostly young children. The Essence of Thakurmar Jhuli The efforts of Majumdar might not seem unique today, for there are various other authors who, with the help and support of good publishing houses, in succeeding years noted down folktales and these have helped circulate the beliefs and socio-cultural ethos of a certain region all over the world in recent times.
However, a hundred years back, the effort was unique and genuine in a manner that it was not a scholarly attempt for the erudite community, but an uncomplicated endeavour to retain a sense of originality from the simplicity of life that formed the basic notion of life away from the intellectual and learned urban scenario that was a century ago.
Transcribing of folktales has a long tradition both in India and abroad. Mention may also be made of the French collectors of the nineteenth century and early twentieth century, such as J. Arnauding, P.
Perbosc, P. Luzel, and P.
He collected and published folktales with the help of the Austrian Consul in Greece which tried to look into the typological connections between folktales and Greek mythology.
However, the exact transcribing conditions of Hahn was lost as he never had the time to reveal them Papachristophorou, Closer to the field of the present study, in West Bengal, prominent literary and scholarly figures such as Dineschandra Sen , Upendrakishore RoyChowdhury , Jasimuddin , Abanindranath Tagore , and Rabindranath Tagore to name a few, contributed immensely to the recovery and preservation of Bengali folk literature, especially taking shape and influencing the Swadeshi mind during the tumultuous period of the Banga-Bhanga Andolan or the Bengal Partition Movement of Whatever the geographical boundaries are, the realm of folklore and oral narratives occupies a distinct category of importance.
A generally accepted notion about folklore is that it survives within a particular society because it fulfils certain social functions which can be many and also, on the other hand, be specific to certain cultures.
These can be broadly grouped into Bhattacharya D. A good example is when Mukherjee points out that in China, several myths, legends, and folktales have been written down, edited, and compiled by contemporary writers and were then orally transmitted and also perpetuated among the peasants.
But, the Vedas and the Indian epics such as Ramayana and Mahabharata are good examples to mention the importance of the written media to perpetuate the knowledge which had a history of oral transmission for centuries. The method of transmission plays a very significant role in folklore and is often believed to be the basis through which the laws of nature, man-nature relationship, and prescriptive pattern of interpersonal behaviour within and between families, yet remaining basically within the ethnic boundary, is conveyed.
Maranda and Maranda describe folklore communication as narratives, serving the function of information transmission where the storyteller acts as an encoder and the codes as symbols, which are constructed out of the cultural mosaic, and the listeners as the decoders.
Thus, it should also be kept in mind that, the codes and symbols used in one context may not be relevant to another context. However, the elucidation and involvement of codes and symbols is an intrinsic tool for the analysis of folklore. Whether these symbols are culture specific or can transgress cultures is also another genre that needs to be analysed.
On the other hand, certain symbols can be developed to act as specific discourses between cultures. Thus, the age-old story of the sly fox from Thakurmar Jhuli takes a new meaning for a seven-year- old child because relevant symbols of school, school bus, homework, drawing classes, and teachers are incorporated within the folds of the story in an attempt to make it more relevant for the listener.
The vast popularity of the show is also estimated through the subsequent running of the show, uninterrupted for three years, and still finding a preference even among urban children - many of whom may not have been exposed to the book or the stories at all. All the works of Majumdar are titled after a grandparent, who are the fragile yet robust representatives of the bygone era and thereby, a sense of precious heritage being entrusted to a generation.
All the tales are expressed in a manner that relates to a specific culture and time and thereby, woven and made into a pattern that relates to the culture of the region. Although certain obvious changes over a period of a century make some of the characters and the situations seem out of place and out-of-date, the familiarity of incidents, locations, and the problems and the problem-solving methods often relate to the modern world as well. This helps in finding easy reference to the familiar surroundings, environments and characters that directly relate to the mind, who are the listeners of the stories.The floating mass of folklore, being gradually supplemented with regular inputs, varying from region to region and generation to generation, finds new expression in the minds of the audience.

This closely follows the path of the age-old oral tradition of Chhara5 unwritten poems.
