The Dullard PANCHATANTRA - THE DULLARD
Tales from the Panchatantra
The 'dullard' of the story, an unfortunate failure at school, is a familiar figure in every age. Poor at his books, he compensates with a wealth of common sense, and goes on to survive life's trials rather well.
His comically smug, scholarly companions, on the other hand, soon meet their doom. These tales may mirror everyday human vices in a time-tested and engaging way, but they are also gentle guides to a wiser, happier path.
This collection is based on Durgasimha's Kannada Panchatantra.
