what to wear when…a bangladeshi fairy tale (requested by notyourexrotic).

examples: দুই চোর এবং তাদের ছেলেদের মধ্যে ইভেন্ট (the adventures of two thieves and of their sons), হাড় ক্ষেত্রের (the field of bones), নীল পদ্ম এবং লাল পদ্ম (blue lotus and red lotus)

fairy tales, known as rupkatha in bangla, are imaginative stories…cultural differences affect the narrative. for instance, in many bangla tales, the wicked stepmother of european fairy tales is replaced by the jealous co-wife…unlike the western fairy tales we’ve studied, indian [and bangladeshi] tales do not usually feature redemption…if you’re bad, you’re dead. there is no theme of forgiveness…many bangla fairy tales originate in the pavchatantra or the jataka. many have also been derived from arabian and persian tales. however, in bangla fairy tales, the fairies of middle-eastern tales are replaced by gods and goddesses. common characters of bangla fairy tales include demons and ogres, ascetics and witches, kings and queens, princes and princesses, sons of ministers and constables. miracles and magic abound: the seven childless wives of a king give birth simultaneously after eating a magic root given by an ascetic, animals foretell the future or produce gold coins, princes disguise themselves as birds or animals to perform heroic deeds, etc. in kajal rekha, the closed door of a temple opens at the touch of kajal rekha’s hand; in buddhu bhutum, queens give birth to an owl and a monkey. despite the unbelievable and impossible events that take place in fairy tales, their underlying theme of virtue rewarded and evil punished gives them a universal appeal.
