Product description


Panchatantra, India's famous collection of fables has enthralled audiences for centuries. Full of humour, wit and wisdom, the tales combine artfully to convey basic life lessons. These fabulous stories, originally imported by a sage to three young princes, all illustrate that knowing how to use knowledge is more important than knowledge itself. The only non-scholarly version available, it is elegantly crafted and simple to read. Both younger readers and adults will enjoy this vivid retelling of Panchatantra.
