Rice Tales

Almost all the countries of Asia have folktales and folklore on rice.

A good place to find such tales is the Rice Today magazine published by International Rice Research Institute.

Sounds forbidding but the folktales are simply written and beautiful. Each issue carries one rice folktale.

For my stories  see –

  • How Rice came to the Torajas



  • When there is rice in the barn all else will follow  



  • and my article Rice in Bengal
