The Pelicans and The Sea
The Panchatantra ( 200BCE - 300 CE )is an ancient Indian collection interrelated animal fables in Sanskrit verse and prose. These stories are arranged within a "frame story", meaning each individual tale contributes to a wider narrative. The Panchatantra is considered to have influenced later European books, such as Boccaccio and The Grimm Brothers.
The pelicans seek a safe place to lay their precious eggs, and carefully choose the seashore as their new nest and home. Angry at their audacity, the sea sends a large wave to wash the eggs away. The birds are aghast with worry and appeal pleasingly to Garuda, the Hindu bird king, to ensure their safe return. Garuda brokers a deal with Lord Vishnu, and the eggs are swiftly returned to the birds.
