Kutkha – The Raven

In this post we will see another book on fairy-tales titled Kutkha The Raven

fainna-solasko-kutkha-the-raven_0000

This is a book of folk tales and fables of the peoples of the Soviet Far North, the Chukchi Nentsi, Eskimos and others, in which all the characters are animals.

According to an ancient northern custom, people gathered and made merry after a lucky hunt, or in winter when snowstorms raged and they were forced to wait for calmer weather. This was the time for story-telling.

The best story-tellers were always greatly respected, since these peoples had no written books. A story-teller had to know many fables and legends by heart. Besides, he had to tell a story well, to make it interesting. He also had to have a pleasant voice. The story-teller was treated to the best food. Many people gathered round to hear his tales. An Eskimo hunter named Kivagme was one of these fine story-tellers whose name has come down to us. Several of his tales have been included in this book.

The tundra and taiga have always been full of birds and beasts. This is why so many stories of the North are about animals and why the animals in them resemble humans in every way: they live in tents, ride in reindeer sleds and cross rivers in boats.

These stories praise honesty, courage and common-sense and disapprove of idle talk, bragging and, especially, laziness. All were handed down from generation to generation.

This edition has been illustrated by Yevgeny Rachov, People’s Artist of the RSFSR, known for his many fine illustrations of folk tales and
children’s books.

The book was translated by Fainna Solasko and the wonderful illustrations are by Illustrated by Y. Rachov. Malysh publishers first printed the book in 1981.

A Mountain Of Gems: Fairy Tales of the Peoples of the Soviet Land

path4147

In this post we will see a story collection for children. A Mountain Of Gems: Fairy Tales of the Peoples of the Soviet Land.

 

mountain-of-gems-soviet_0000

mountain-of-gems-soviet_0158

Many different peoples live in this huge country, each with their own habits and traditions, their own language. The Uzbek language, for instance, bears as little resemblance to the Russian or, say, the Moldavian as the Arabic does to the English or the Chinese.

And all of the peoples of the Soviet Union have their own fairy tales.

The Chukchi and Nenets tales as well as the tales of other peoples of Russian North transport us into the snowy tundra, a realm of fierce frosts and howling blizzards, where the dog and the reindeer are man’s best friends. In the tales of the peoples of Central Asia caravans of camels plod slowly over the scorching sands, and the ceaseless murmur of water comes from the numerous canals that feed the ever thirsty fields. Other scenes and images rise up before us when we read Russian fairy tales. The stout-hearted young heroes of these tales gallop on horseback over hills and dales which are green in summer anti carpeted with snow in winter, while their lovely tsarevnas sit patiently waiting for them in their log towers with windows of mica.

Do you know why I have translated all these fairy cates for you? It was because I enjoyed reading them so much.

Open the book, and you will find yourselves in a world of magic. Together with Ivan the Peasant’s Son you will cross words with Chudo-Yudo, the fire-breathing monster, follow Pokati-Goioshek, or Pea-Roll Along, into the underground kingdom and return from there on the back of an eagle or marvel at the cleverness of Zarniyar who outwitted a cruel Shah, be filled with admiration for Boroldoi-Merger the brave hunter of the Altai mountains who risked the Life of his own
son in order to save his people, delight in the resourcefulness of a simple weaver who surpassed in wisdom the wisest councillors of the Tsar.

And I know that when you have met them, these and other characters in this book, you will grow to love them, and they will become your good and faithful friends.

path4173

The book was translated by Irina Zhelenova and was illustrated by Vladimir Minayev. The book was first published in 1962, with second printing by Raduga in 1983.

Many. many thanks to Guptaji for this Mountain of Gems. 🙂

Man and Animals – Dmitriyev

In this post we will see Man and Animals by Yuri Dmitriyev.

man-and-animals-yuri-dmitriyev_0000

Man’s life on Earth is bound up fast with animals, birds, and fish t insects and beasts, octopi and worms.

But over the millennia Man’s relationships with animals have undergone many changes. Animals supplied Man with food and clothes inspired him with fear and gave him joy, originated customs and beliefs that sometimes influenced the entire mode of life of the given society, they have been enemies, friends and tutors.

God-animals were replaced by worker-animals, wild animals were replaced by domestic ones as the main source of meat. The importance of some animals was enhanced and of other diminished. And, naturally, throughout Man’s history he has brought influence to bear on the animal world — directly or indirectly, consciously or unconsciously.

One book is not really enough to tell about the many different relationships between Man and animals. Nor have I tried to embrace the subject in its entirety. I wrote this hook for children, striving, above all, to make them understand how important it is to know, love and protect animals.

path4479

The book is full of photos and illustrations of animals from varied cultures and geographical regions.
There is a Hindi translation of the book. I don’t if it was translated to other Indian languages also.

The book was traslated from the Russian by Raissa Bobrova. The design of the book is by B. P. Kishtymov and I. V. Borisova. The book was first published by Raduga in 1984 and was reprinted in 1988.

Elementary Physics: Problems and Solutions – Gurskii

In this post we will see the book Elementary Physics: Problems and Solutions by I. P. Gurskii

gurskii-elementary-physics

The book is intended for those preparing for university entrance examinations in physics. The contents and sequence of topics are in keeping with the requirements for such examinations. The few sections beyond the entrance examination programme are marked by circles. In view of the introduction of the elements of higher mathematics to the high-school curriculum, some problems have also been illustrated using differential calculus. The author has endeavoured to present the basic principles of school physics in a compact form to help the candidates revise the entire course in the shortest possible time. All sections have been illustrated with problems to give a better understanding of the subject. Each problem and its solution is followed by one or more exercises on the same topic, the exercises corresponding to problems that have been solved in the text are assigned the same number.Those intending to use this book independently are advised to attempt the exercises after going through the theoretical part. The relevant solved problems should be consulted if difficulties are encountered while solving the exercises. After this, the exercise should be tried again, and if there is more than one exercise bearing the same number, another exercise (preferably the last one) should be tackled. In most cases, the last exercises in a series are the most difficult.

The book was translated from Russian by Natalia Wadhwa and was first published in 1987.
