Was Tenali Raman a fool or the cleverest man at the court of Krishnadevaraya, an emperor of the Vijayanagara Empire who reigned from 1509–1529?

Tenali Raman, an Indian poet, scholar, thinker, and a special advisor at the court of Krishnadeva Raya, humbled great kings and learned scholars.

Wriggling out of every predicament in unique and unexpected ways, this poet-jester reminds us of Birbal at the court of Akbar.

Read his tales and laugh with joy even as his plain common sense leaves you gasping.
