Stories From The Panchatantra (5 In 1 Series) is a compilation of five titles from the Panchatantra, a book of fables from Indian folklore. The first story included is The Jackal And The War Drum. This is followed by three other titles, namely Crows And Owls, How The Jackal Ate The Elephant, and The Brahmin And The Goat. The final title in the collection is The Dullard And Other Stories. The stories that are narrated in this book provide advice on the right way of life and morality, which is a common characteristic of Panchatantra tales. The characters in these tales are also anthropomorphic in nature, i.e. they are animal characters with human attributes. The set was released as a part of Amar Chitra Katha, an Indian comic book series established by Anant Pai himself. Anant Pai was an Indian educationist, storyteller, and comic book creator, best known for his creation of the Indian comic series Amar Chitra Katha. He was born on September 17, 1929, in Karkala, Karnataka, India. He received two degrees from the University of Bombay. His work includes comic strips like Little Raji and Kapish. He also wrote several books on personality development for teenagers and children. Pai won many awards, including the T. M. A. Pai Memorial Award and the Priyadarshini Academy Award. He passed away on February 24, 2011, leaving behind his wife, Lalita Pai.
