This book contains stories that I heard as a child from my grandmother, mother, aunts, and miscellaneous cousins who cradled me with affection. These stories were passed down, verbally, from generation to generation from the elders and have distinguishing morals at the end which a child can decipher easily: that we must show kindness and consideration to all fellow human beings as well as all other living creatures whom we share this earth with; that there is someone who keeps watch on us and rewards us for our kind deeds; that honesty is the best policy, and virtue is its own reward. These stories also tell us that a friend in need is really a friend indeed; and as you sow, so shall you reap.
I wanted to write some of these down before they disappeared from our collective memory. I wanted to bring a taste of that old-world culture to the children in this country. I also felt that the children of the expatriates should not lose their connection with their roots while embracing the new culture of their adoptive home.

Khojesta A. Price was born in India, raised in East Pakistan, and left home during the civil war that led to the creation of a new country, Bangladesh. She came to the U.S. on a university scholarship to obtain a graduate degree. And she stayed on.
As a child in her native country she often published poetry and short stories. She also published articles and short stories in this country as well - mostly in California where she lived for 33 years.
Tales from Bangladesh is her first children's book. Her short story collections for grown-ups, Pursuit of Happiness will be published later this year. She is already working on More Tales from Bangladesh.
Ms. Price now makes her home in the Midwestern region of this country where she has plenty of peace and quiet to continue in her own pursuit.
