Every religion has great tales to tell. Here is a book that brings together great fables of Hindu religion-from Panchatantra to Sai Baba-in a single book; then fascinating fables of Islam - from Mohammad to Ibrahim, that instruct as well as entertain; finally a magical memoir about Pamela Mountbatten, daughter of India's last viceroy, that takes readers into the lives of 20th century's leading figures.
