Story of Panchtantra
More than 2000 years ago, when King Amarshakti of Mahilaropya Kingdom was worried about the education of his three sons; he invited the renowned teacher Acharya Vishnusharma.
Vishnusharmapromised to educate the princes in six months time. In the next six months Acharya Vishnusharma taught the princes by way of moral stories and made sure they learn the ways of the social life.
Vishnusharma divided his lessons into five parts. First part was about differences or conflicts among friends, the second part was choosing the right friend and forming relationships, the third part was about stories of crows and owls, the fourth part was about what to do in desperate situations and the fifth part was how to navigate in situations about which one does not have complete visibility.

These five chapters collectively became popular as Panchtantra. In this series we will be bringing out stories from Panchtantra with interesting visuals, which you can watch with your kids while solving these puzzles.
