Composed in Sanskrit in around 300 CE, the Panchatantra is one of the oldest collections of fables in the world. Devised for the purposes of teaching three dull-witted sons of a king, it strives to convey the principles of kingship and some valuable life lessons. Relive the joy of this enduring classic through this magnificent translation from the original that illuminates the wise, pithy and unexpectedly witty tales like never before.
