"In this book an attempt has been made to present the famed tales of Vikram and Vetala with focus on their underlying wisdom and explicating them step-by-step to distil that wisdom for the benefit of solving puzzles faced by individuals, organisations and corporates in their day-to-day existence. In fact the full play of all management theories can be witnessed in the tales without clothing them in technical jargons. As far as the treatment of the tales in this book is concerned, the 25 stories are structured uniquely. In the first place, the reader gets a glimpse of the basic story with all its punch and then he is guided to a corporate insight where a core management issue illuminating the story is explicated suitably. Again the story is analysed in the context of universal appeal and relevance in everyday life and concludes with a quote of wisdom. So, every tale stirs the reader's imagination and intelligence to a new plane and transforms him into mature and jubilant individual. "
