Everyone agreed that Raman of Tenali was very cleaver. As a boy, he exasperated people his mischief just as much as he impressed them with his intelligence.

As jester in the court of King Krishna Devaraya, Tenali continued to entertain and annoy the king and courtiers in equal measure. But underlying the buffoonery an audacious exploits was a keen concern for truth and a desire to bring to light the follies of men and society.

This collection of eighteen stories contains all the wit and wisdom that make the stories of Tenali Raman so widely read and well loved.
