Jaswinder Singh Kainaur is a genius writer and broadcaster as well as a sincere and committed person. After writing short stories, poems and other articles on the culture and folklore of Punjab, his book ‘Indian Culture and Rituals’ is an example of his devotion and commitment towards the folklore. In today’s era of consumerism and market culture, such a sincere effort seems not only difficult but also impossible, but Jaswinder has accomplished this task with his diligence and hard work. Identifying and documenting a culture or folk movement is essentially a group work that involves research, thematic analysis, and intensive study. This book is a document of the rituals and customs from the beginning of human life to its end and beyond, which have been accepted in the Indian society since ancient times. He has already written a book in Punjabi on the folklore of Punjab. And writing such a documentary that can be said to be his meaningful achievement. Through this, Jaswinder has touched on such a topic of culture which still calls for further research. Undoubtedly, this book will serve as a road map for other researchers whose various layers can be explored further. This new work is warmly welcomed in the world of Indian literature.
