We know that fairy tales have existed for a long time. For how long? We are not sure of the origin, sadly we do not have the records of ancient civilizations. We started recording say from past ten or twenty decades. We did not possess means and technology to protect our literature.
So most of the ancient literary works have propagated through word of mouth. The evolution of fairy tales and the trends of storytelling remained with our forefathers and they preserved it in their heart from one generation to other.
