Description

The Funniest Tales Of Mullah Nasruddin

by Clifford Sawhney

Mullah Nasruddin is undoubtedly the best-known trickster and wit in human history.

In some tales, Mullah is the smart joker taking others for a ride. In other stories, he's the one who becomes a fool.

In yet others, the joke swings both ways and one isn't exactly sure who has fooled whom!

Many tales are awash with unabashed nonsense and unbridled humour where Nasruddin play the wise man, the fool, the victim or the prankster in turns!

For centuries, Nasruddin has been amusing people throughout the world.

Indeed, Mullah`s popularity was universally acknowledged when UNESCO declared 1996 as Nasruddin Hoja Year.

His anecdotes are now being spun in modern avatars, with many tales of Mullah`s exploits in America and England.

This book deals with his tales of yore. After every tale, the author has added a creative insight.

No matter what Mullah Nasruddin is called - a wise fool or a foolish wise man- there`s no doubt he is the world`s most loved trickster.

Reviews:-

On one occasion, Mullah Nasruddin is about to fall into a pond, but is saved in the nick of the moment by a passer-by. However, this turns out to be a bane of his life, as his saviour keeps reminding him of the favour he has done him. Harassed beyond endurance, the Mullah finally rids himself of the obligation in his own, inimitable fashion – by taking him to the pool and jumping into it in full public view, and then calling out to him, “I’m now as wet as I would have been if you had not saved me (that day)…now just leave me alone!”

This is just one of the collection of 140 hilarious, though thought-provoking tales of the highly popular trickster, Mullah Nasruddin (Nasruddin Hodja), collected and retold by journalist Clifford Sawhney. The lively Nasruddin dons diverse roles in these tales – while he is the wise man in some, he appears as a fool in others, he also features alternately as prankster and a victim!

Most of the stories are the popular ones that can be found on the Internet. They read more like anecdotes or Internet jokes rather than authentic Hodja stories, as some of them feature characters like the Pope and Rabbi Mashe apart from Nasruddin. The usage of the Hindi/ Urdu expressions for a Turkish character (Mullah) raises doubts about the extent of research done by the author. He has given his own interpretation as a post-script to each tale.
