This collection is quite rare

This is truly fascinating. I had never heard most of these stories before. Also, having heard some small stories here and there (mostly from my grandma), there were some gaps which couldn't be filled and remained lurking right from my childhood. After listening to this, I'm able to connect the dots.

The narration is quite fluent.
