Funny questions, funny answers, complicated problems, witty solutions – all put together for your entertainment.

Tenali Ramakrishna, one of the famous eight gems at the royal court of King Krishna Dev Rai, was the most wise and witty of them all and was held in great respect by the king himself. He always had to face a barrage of perplexing questions from the king and the courtiers alike, who took great delight in putting ‘teasers’ to him for the sake of fun and laughter.

Tenali Ramakrishna always faced the challenges gallantly and in good humor, and came off with flying colors. Even King Krishna Dev Rai had to bow to his opinions, knowledge and witty solutions.

How far these legends, that we have brought out through the pages of this book, are historically true, has never been found out for the simple reason that the supporting documents may not be existing in each and every case. So, it is more fun to enjoy these anecdotes, as they are, rather than to dig deep into them and look for the sources of their origin.
