When the teachers failed to impart knowledge to the frivolous princes, Pandit Vishnu Sharma promised the king that he could put sense into them through moral stories. He did it and the princes became astute youngmen.

That is the background of the creation of Panchatantra. It proves that the teacher knew the basic principles of education and was well versed with child psychology. He taught the princes wisdom and common sense through a series of engaging stories featuring birds and animals which later became famous all over the world. The stories make several volumes. The stories became an inspiration and the models for thousands of other stories created later on.

The stories are simple but the message is sublime and they touch the heart in a very natural way. When the herd of elephants would pass that way thousands of rats would get crushed under their hooves. The king of rats requested to the king of elephants to change his route. He said that may be, some day he would be able to pay back kindness in some way if he was obliged.

The elephant king obliged and changed the route of his herd. Sometime later, the hunters laid traps for elephants. The king elephant got trapped. The king rat heard the cry and realized that the elephant was in trouble. He gathered his rat army and raced to the trapped elephant king. They gnawed away the ropes of the trap and freed the elephant. Don’t ignore someone because of his size. No one knows when you will require the help of whom.
