However, the Hegade or feudal lord authorised to collect tribute on behalf of the king, exploits the villagers by demanding in excess and keeping more than half for himself.

A thoughtless queen decrees that anyone who cries in her kingdom will be thrown out, not foreseeing that one day she too might feel sorrow.

Each region and language has its own particular set of stories – though many tales recur across different traditions. The stories here are taken from Bengal.
