Folktales Translated in Hindi

This Web Site has been created for the Hindi-speaking people to facilitate them to read foreign language folktale literature in Hindi language. Foreign language does not mean English, or German, or Italian languages only but it covers India's other state languages too, such as Bengali, Gujrati, Tamil etc.

I have found many sites containing folktales in English and other languages but I have not come through any site for translated site for them in Hindi. So we started this project to translate folktales from other languages in Hindi, so that Hindi speaking people can read them and enjoy them in their own language. Read them and enjoy.

I am sure this will prove the best collection ever of translated folktales in Hindi. Their number is ever increasing. For further information please contact :
