About the Book :
This is a compilation of five titles from the Panchatantra, a book of fables from Indian folklore. The first story included is The Jackal And The War Drum. This is followed by three other titles, namely Crows And Owls, How The Jackal Ate The Elephant, and The Brahmin And The Goat. The final title in the collection is The Dullard And Other Stories. The stories that are narrated in this book provide advice on the right way of life and morality, which is a common characteristic of Panchatantra tales. The characters in these tales are also anthropomorphic in nature, i.e. they are animal characters with human attributes.
