Fables[edit]

Please include some of the fables found in the legends of Indian Sub-continent. Cultural diversity is perhaps much diverse in this part of globe. India, especially is a rich treasure of fables.

  • This page is just about the fables of Aesop. Whole fables would be too much to include on any page and should be in a sister prjoect like Wikisource. Will Beback 01:21, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Unsourced[edit]

The complete (extent) works of Aesop are known. The fables are the entirety of his works. So if a quotation isn't in one of his fables it is probably misattributed. Since the language is usally fairly simple, it should be possible to search across many translations. Will Beback 01:21, 8 September 2008 (UTC)
