The Tortoise And The Hare: A Fable Retold – Dr Zakir Husain


This story is, in the words of the late President, “a children’s story for adults”.  Playing on the theme of the famous Aesop’s fable , it is written simply but with a sophistication and wit few could equal. It is set in the contemporary Indian scene with many references to current controversies over language and religion. Gently moralistic, it makes absorbing reading from beginning to end.  Shri Khushwant Singh’s translation has done ample justice to this excellent little story.
