Safety and Health is not the right forum for all Panchatantra stories. But there may be some suitable.
In any case, please search the web and you will find some; I found a good one at Sriram Blog: Lessons from the Panchatantra
I found the whole Panchatantra book in English at <link outdated-removed> and it's up to us to read the stories and see how they can be used to teach management principles and practices.
Have a nice day.

1.Mitra Bhedha (The Loss of Friends)
2.Mitra Laabha (Gaining Friends)
3.Suhrudbheda (Causing Dissension Between Friends)
The stories may be considered similar to Statements of law which are open for interpretations. It is up to any one to interprete and correlate a real life situation with the panchatantra stories.
In today's context, the above 5 principles can be interpreted as :-
1.Avoid quarrels with whomever you deal with (friends, colleagues, associates, clients and others). Act as a mediator to patch up any misunderstanding between those whom you interact.
2.Make as many friends as possible from whom you can gain important lessons and benefit from their experience.
3.Do not trust people who are unreliable by their actions and behavior
4.Cultivate presence of mind under all situations by following those who have such qualities and learn how they would do.
5.Learn how deal with an unfamiliar situation based on the experience of your friends, associates and colleagues who have faced similar situations.
