Getting caught up on providing overviews for the units this morning, so here is one for my beloved Panchatantra. I am so glad to be able to include this book in the class since there is probably no other book which has been such a catalyst in my own explorations in the world of stories and storytelling. Even better, it's Ryder's translation. I hope so much the students will like it! Really translating Sanskrit into English is an impossibility for all kinds of reasons (Sanskrit vocabulary is just mind-boggling), but Ryder makes the best attempt I can imagine.
