 India, with its ancient traditions, is one of the oldest, wisest and most enlightened nations in the world. Almost everyone in modern educated world is aware of the 'Upanishads', 'Vedas', and even 'Yoga'. There is no doubt thatAncient India has excercised great intellectual life, and has dazzled with fabulous antiquity, and with its literature.

The Panchatantra is a unique contribution of Ancient India to the world, particularly to the world literature, that has equally delighted the young and the old, educated and uneducated, rich and poor, high and low - for over two thousand years.
