Since the beginning of humanity, fables and stories have been the means of imparting instruction and amusement to man. The stories were designed to illustrate and exemplify precepts for human conduct. After centuries, these stories eventually found themselves in print. They are divided into four groups: Sanskrit or Hindoo, Arabic or Persian, Western or European and the American. Of these, the Sanskrit or Hindoo group of stories are the oldest and probably served as the basis of Arabic or Persian tales, which again served as the source for many European story-tellers.Printed Pages: 158.
