A Brahmin is fooled because he trusts the words of another before his own. A mighty leopard learns, to his misfortune, that his brawn is no match for the brain of a clever jackal. A school of fish realise that one who smiles and smiles can still be a villain. Philosophy, psychology and statecraft, none of them seem difficult when explained through the escapades of humans and talking animals. The original Sanskrit text of the Panchatantra was probably written around 200 BC by the great scholar, Vishnu Sharma. It has since been translated into over 50 international languages.
