520    In the early sixteenth century, Tenali Rama was a jester 
       in the court of King Krishna Deva Raya, the ruler of 
       Vijayanagara in south India.  Known for his sharp wit, 
       intelligence and sense of humour, Tenali Rama was one of 
       the eight pillars in the Vijayanagara court.  Tenali s 
       brilliant sense of humour made all the other courtiers 
       jealous. Many times jealous courtiers plotted to show 
       Tenali in bad light.  But Tenali had the blessings of 
       Goddess Kali so that he always used the right word and did
       the right thing and invariably escaped the most difficult 
       situations.  However, Tenali Rama s sense of fair play 
       endeared him to the common citizens and his tales soon 
       became legend.  Each tale in this volume reveals some or 
       all facets of Tenali s character.
