About this Item: V & S Publishers, New Delhi, India. Softcover. Condition: New. Panchatantra is perhaps the oldest collection of Indian fables still gaining strength and moving ahead. It is believed to have written around 200BC by the great Hindu Scholar Pandit Vishnu Sharma. Panchatantra means "the five principles? It is a "Nitishastra" which means book of wise conduct in life. Panchatantra consists of five books: 1. Mitra Bhedha (The loss of friends); 2. Mitra Laabha (Gaining friends); 3. Kakolukiyam (Crows and owls); 4. Labdhap-ranasam (Loss of gains); and 5. Aparikshitakarakam (Ill-considered actions). The simple stories of Panchatantra have stood the test of time in the modern age of materialism, stressful living and individualism, and aim to guide the young readers on how to attain success in life by understanding human nature. Key Features: Written in simple and lucid language Each story is supplemented by a moral Word meaning for vocabulary building Practice exercise given for better understanding Panchatantra is commonly available in an abridged form for children. It is an ideal book worth going through many times over. Honestly speaking, it is of far more practical importance for elders to read this book since it is they who always come in contact with people having good, doubtful or bad intensions and motives.

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. What do you do as a father and a King if your three heirs are indolent and ignorant, and, as a result, the very future of your kingdom is at stake?You turn the three brats over to the intellectual powerhouse Pandit Vishnu Sharma!The Panchatantra Retold is a collection of entertaining and enlightening folk-tales from Ancient India, originally narrated by Pandit Vishnu Sharma to the three Princes of Mahilaropya to infuse them with the much-needed worldly wisdom that traditional learning had failed to impart.So the Panchatantra can actually be described as an Ancient self-help book on how to navigate successfully through the various vicissitudes of life. It is important to mention though that these stories are not didactic and moralistic in any sentimental, black and white way. The good do not always win here. This led the German scholar Dr. Johannes Hertel to describe the stories as Machiavellian in tone. It is a possibility that Machiavelli himself was familiar with the stories from the Panchatantra and that they were something of an influence for his own work The Prince .The stories offer a vivid picture of life in Ancient India, and it is interesting to discover that, for all the progress made over the many centuries since the Panchatantra was written, the essential qualities of human psychology have not altered to that great an extent.The stories are divided into five sections - Mitra Bheda (Loss of Friends), Mitra Samprapti (The Gaining of Friends), Kakolukiyam (The Fierce Enmity between the Crows and the Owls), Labdhapranasam (Loss of Gains), and Apariksitakarakam (Ill-considered Action).This is the second section, Mitra Samprapti (The Gaining of Friends). The main story is about the crow Laghupatanak and his friendship with Hiranyak the mouse, Mantharak the tortoise, and Chitrang the deer, and the other stories evolve from the main story. The focus here is on how to build and maintain friendships, and how friends can prove loyal and useful in times of peril. There are ten stories in this volume. Seller Inventory # APC9781539835462

About this Item: V & S Publishers, 2014. Softcover. Condition: New. Panchatantra is perhaps the oldest collection of Indian fables still gaining strength and moving ahead. It is believed to have written around 200BC by the great Hindu Scholar Pandit Vishnu Sharma. Panchatantra means "the five principlesâ. It is a "Nitishastra" which means book of wise conduct in life. Panchatantra consists of five books: 1. Mitra Bhedha (The loss of friends); 2. Mitra Laabha (Gaining friends); 3. Kakolukiyam (Crows and owls); 4. Labdhap-ranasam (Loss of gains); and 5. Aparikshitakarakam (Ill-considered actions). The simple stories of Panchatantra have stood the test of time in the modern age of materialism, stressful living and individualism, and aim to guide the young readers on how to attain success in life by understanding human nature. Key Features: Written in simple and lucid language Each story is supplemented by a moral Word meaning for vocabulary building Practice exercise given for better understanding Panchatantra is commonly available in an abridged form for children. It is an ideal book worth going through many times over. Honestly speaking, it is of far more practical importance for elders to read this book since it is they who always come in contact with people having good, doubtful or bad intensions and motives.
