"Must read for all folktales lovers. I downloaded it yesterday and somehow couldn't leave it in between and read all the stories in one go. Specially the second one ("Blind vulture") is quite interesting and thought provoking too." - DeepakBansal
"Beautiful Stories. I liked all the stories. Some of them I had read in childhood, so it was heart warming to read them again. Now I understand why they made us read all these stories at younger age, they wanted these morals to be imbibed in our thought process. Kudos to the people who have brought them here." - GauravGopal

An excellent collection of short stories, Folk Tales of India, is one of the finest attempts to compile the treasures from Indian folk literature.
These fables originally appeared in 'Hitopadesha', a collection of Sanskrit fables in prose and verse written in the 12 century C.E by Narayana Pandit. Hitopadesh tales are written in reader-friendly way, which also contributed to the success of this best seller after 'Bhagwad Gita' in India. Since its origin, Hitopadesa has been translated into numerous languages to benefit the readers all over the world.
The Hitopadesh is still very much popular children story book that actually help them to develop into responsible and mature adults.
