Panchatantra - Short Stories.

For more than two and a half millennia, the Panchatantra tales have regaled children and adults alike with a moral at the end of every story. Some believe that they are as old as the RigVeda. There is also another story about these fables. According to it, these are stories Shiva told his consort Parvati.

A king, worried that his three sons are without the wisdom to live in a world of wile and guile, asks a learned man called Vishnu Sharman to teach them the ways of the world. Since his wards are dimwits, Vishnu Sharman decides to pass on wisdom to them in the form of stories. In these stories, he makes animals speak like human beings. Panchatantra is a collection of attractively told stories about the five ways that help the human being succeed in life. Pancha means five and tantra means ways or strategies or principles. Addressed to the king's children, the stories are primarily about statecraft and are popular throughout the world.

The five strategies are:
- Discord among friends
- Gaining friends
- Of crows and owls
- Loss of gains and
- Imprudence

    Its gud for story telling, Story telling and that too inspiring is any parents uphill task, thanks to panchatantra now I am able to teach good learnings to my kids and to self too, now not having dadi and nani nearby is not a concern.

    Not good
    Stories are rather simplistic, almost have no meaning at all. There are not really well-written pieces either.
