people, how choose reliable and trustworthy friends, how to meet difficulties and solve problems

many pitfalls in life. Difficult subject like philosophy, psychology, politics, music, astronomy,

The Panchatantra is woven round the frame of a tale of a king entrusts his three dull to a
learned man, a Brahmin called Pandit Vishnu Sharma, to enlighten their minds within six months.

to them his specially composed tales divided into tantras, (literally, five systems) on how to
deal with people in life.
