Nice listen for all ages

While we know the stories, this book explains them nicely in the context and the interlocked meanings in THE situations..

Perfect translation

I read the original Panchatantra in Hindi when I was a child. This audiobook is in simple English. Name of characters remain same as of Sanskrit version.

i read the physical book and listend to the audio

this is one of the few originals of panchantantra without too much of dramatization.
hence recommended both for listening as well as reading the physical book if you get access to it by rupa publications.

The stories are incomplete

All the stories in the book are incomplete so they end abruptly and leave us on the way to nowhere,so only the writer can interpret its moral.As long as you are not the writer of this book don’t buy it
