The Brahmin and the Goat (Amar Chitra Katha)
Three cunning men vex a Brahmin into throwing away a goat carried by him, by calling the animal as a calf, a dog and a donkey. An elephant heeds the request of mice not to trample them; and is gratefully freed by them when trapped later.
A sage turns a mouse into a girl. When she is grown up and asked to choose a groom, she rejects the Sun, Cloud, Wind And Mountain one by one and settles upon the mouse as the mightiest.
This Panchatantra collection is a treasure house of a variety of such stories. A collection of tales compiled by Vishnu Sharma, For his young students some 2,200 years ago, the Panchatantra is still correcting common human weakness with its wry humor.
