Hitopadesha Choice of Friends and other Stories
Hitopadesha Choice of Friends and other Stories
Description
Panchatantra was written by Pandit Vishnu Sharma between the second and third centuries B.C. but Hitopadesha came much later. Narayana, the author of Hitopadesha, drew most of his material from Panchatantra. He reconstructed the first three tantras and added about fifteen new tales. The raison d'etre of both books remains the same.

A certain Indian king was perturbed that his three sons were averse to any kind of learning. Taking the advice of his counselors, the king sends the princes to one Vishnu Sharma, who was not only a learned Brahmin but was also a remarkable teacher. Within a short period of six months, the pandit instructs the princes in the art of politics and wordly wisdom, by telling them stories about bird, beast and man. Each character in his stories becomes a vehicle of some precept, either directly or indirectly.

In Panchatantra these stories are divided into five books. Narayana's work, however, has only four- Mitralabha, Suhridbheda, Vigraha and Sandhi. Our Amar Chitra Katha has been adapted from the first book-Mitralabha or winning of Friends.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
