The throne of King Vikramaditya lies buried under the earth before its unearthed may years later by King Bhoja. When King Bhoja tries to ascend the throne after his coronation, he is stopped every time by each of the 32 statuettes. Each of these statuettes which are part of the throne then recites a tale of King Vikram.
Each tale glorifies the King by praising him as he espouses the virtues of honesty, chivalry, righteousness, generosity and bravery. The statuette then asks King Bhoja that he c The throne of King Vikramaditya lies buried under the earth before its unearthed may years later by King Bhoja.
The statuette then asks King Bhoja that he can ascend the throne if he possesses these virtues thus making him suitable to sit upon such a throne that once adorned the mighty king Vikram. Each tale runs into 2 or 3 pages making this book a light read.
I believe this book is an object lesson in the qualities an ideal leader should possess thus making him revered among his subjects. Only weaker. Though I'm no Sanskritist. If it's your first foray into the brilliant plane of Indian thought and myth, you'll probably be blown away. If you already have the major Sanskrit classics under your belt, it'll maybe be more resonant, but, I'd bet, less amazing.
This is a book for anyone wanting to know more about Sanskrit literature with folk roots. The stories are repetitive; probably because they are based on folklore. The translation is, without a doubt, excellent. Interesting, albeit with slightly repetitive moral messages.

Malayalam Story Books
Vetala Tales  is a popular collection of short stories from India of unknown age and antiquity, but predating the 11th century CE. It exists in four main Sanskrit recensions revisions. In addition, there also exists many modern translations into Indian and other vernaculars. The collection consists of a series of unrelated tales, all told within the context of a frame story similar to Scheherezade's in Arabian nights. The exact content of the frame stories varies between versions, but always involves the core element of King Vikramaditya carrying a dead body to a yogi or holy man in a cemetery.
