Just like Birbals’s sayings are current in northern India, Tenali Raman’s sayings are prevalent in every household in south India. In the series Children's Treasury Collection, this book recounts many talres of Tenali Raman.

Tenali Ramakrishna was a great wit who flourished in the court of Krishnadevaraya, king of Vijayanagara in south India. Krishnadevaraya was not only a great lover of justice but a patron of learning and the arts too. In his court, Tenali Raman enjoyed many privileges.

He is variously known as Tenali Ramakrishna, Ramalingudu and Tenali Raman. Countless stories are told about him in Kannada, Tamil and Telugu languages. Besides being witty, these stories contain a great deal of truth and have managed to enthrall young and old alike for generations and generations.
