Mullah Nasruddin is undoubtedly the best-known trickster and wit in human history. In some tales, Mullah is the smart joker taking others for a ride. In other stories, he's the one who becomes a fool. In yet others, the joke swings both ways and one isn't exactly sure who has fooled whom! Many tales are awash with unabashed nonsense and unbridled humour where Nasruddin play the wise man, the fool, the victim or the prankster in turns! For centuries, Nasruddin has been amusing people throughout the world. Indeed, Mullah`s popularity was universally acknowledged when UNESCO declared 1996 as Nasruddin Hoja Year.

After every tale, the author has added a creative insight. No matter what Mullah Nasruddin is called - a wise fool or a foolish wise man- there`s no doubt he is the world`s most loved trickster.
