dc.description.abstractIt is curious that the same publisher put out two Panchatantra books by the same author but different illustrators within about four years of each other. Then again, there is yet another Panchatantra book within this series pictured on the back cover of this book! This slightly smaller-format (7 x 9¼) paperback is like Alka's Panchatantra Stories, for which I guessed a date of 2001. It offers 31 numbered fables on 120 pages. There is a T of C on 3-4. This collection features standard Panchatantra stories. New to me is a story prominently pictured on the book's cover: Greed and the Strange Wheel (16) has four friends searching for wealth. The last of them, too greedy to want to share the others' wealth, encounters a man who like him had been searching for diamonds. This man has a wheel revolving around his bloody head. Finding this new searcher at last relieves him of his burden, and now the new victim must wait for another greedy searcher to come. Again here, GGE appears as a Panchatantra story (23), as does MSA (39), again with a washerman as protagonist. On 73, a weaver with a wish to be granted is prevailed upon by his wife to ask for two more hands; the villagers think he is some evil spirit and beat him to death. The second-to-last story involves an iron bar that is allegedly eaten by mice (111). The cover proclaims Illustrated in Colour, and there are one or two larger-than-half-page colored illustrations for each of the stories.en_US
