Panchatantra Stories Videos

Once upon a time, there lived a hungry jackal in the forest. The jackal wandered into a deserted battlefield in search of food. A battle had been fought recently in the battlefield. As the wind blew, the branches of the tree got rubbed against the drum. It made a loud noise. The battlefield had nothing but a drum. The jackal got scared hearing the loud noise and decided to hide. While he was running away, he had a second thought and he decided to look for the source of the noise. The jackal realized that the wind was causing the noise as soon as he saw the drum. He realized that it was harmless. The jackal again began his search for food near the drum. He found sufficient food and water nearby.
