Works of Munindra Misra are unique on the Indian culture and are written in English rhyme. This makes it easy for the persons comfortable in the English language to have a glimpse of the vast array of colours of the ancient Indian civilisation.
Of any hasty judgements be ever wary,
Without judgment, eternal grief will be.
Munindra seeks His blessings with humility,
To guide his thoughts with unfussy simplicity,
To pen down the thoughts of The Treaty,
Last of the Panchtantra for the humanity.

Seeing child alive, learns mongoose shielded from snake bravely,
Then regrets having killed his friend, the mongoose unreasonably
