Ancient Tales of Wit and Wisdom
Ancient Tales of Wit and Wisdom
Description
The first two titles in this volume are based on the Hitopadesha, attributed to Narayana. The stories in the Hitopadesha are based on the more famous Panchatantra written by Vishnu Sharma.

The third title in the series has stories from the Keyurabahu Charitramu by the distinguished Telugu poet Manchana.

The fourth title in the volume is based on the Mahabharata by Vishnu Sharma.

The fifth title has stories, adapted from Anwar-i-Suhaili, a Persian version of the Panchatantra, written by Hussain Ali Waiz. In Waiz's version of the first story, the bag of gold coins is stuffed into the mouth of a cow, which is later killed. To avoid hurting the sentiments of a vast section of Indians, in our version we have shown a goat instead.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
