The mythic figure Satya Pir has a wide following among Hindus and Muslims alike in the Bangla-speaking regions of South Asia. Believed to be an avatar of Krishna, or a Sufi saint, or somehow both, he is worshipped for his ability to bring wealth and comfort to a family. This book presents lively translations of eight closely related 18th and 19th century Bengali folk tales centered on Satya Pir and the people he helps. These surprising and entertaining stories fly in the face of conventional wisdom about the separation of Muslims and Hindus.
