(Tenalirama - Hindi animated film)

Becoming a Professional Jester
Escaping from the punishment of being trampled by an Elephant
Escaping from the punishment of being cut off by the sword
Appearing with his head concealed
Getting the sentries whipped
Obtaining absolute license to make jokes
Cauterization of Brahmans
Rearing a colt
Rearing a kitten
Profiting by the labour of thieves
A great doctor of sciences overthrown
An unsuccessful conversion
A great poet disgraced
A wrestler deceived
Converting a black dog into a white dog
A novel mode of painting
The Rayar's sincerity tested
