Tracing the Elements of Soft Skills in the Teachings of the Panchatantra

Debadrita Sen [2]

Abstract: "Literature is the mere imitation of life", (Plato), which reflects the different shades and nuances of living, existence and survival. With its many hands of expression, literature has featured forth the animation of 'fables' which unanimously has sufficed the responsibility of delegating morals, teachings and training over centuries together. The significance and application of such a tool to impart modern - day training and grooming stand tall where 'The Panchatantra', (literally 'Five Devices') can act as a medium aiming to infuse the evergreen pedagogy of Sri Vishnu Sharma into the contemporary education system and corporate structures to yield the best result. Soft Skills as an independent genre, has gained immense popularity over the last few decades and now exhibits as an inevitable standard, which needs to be achieved by every professional to exist in the industry. Though, Soft Skills apparently seems to be very novel and contemporary, but traces of its full - grown existence have been witnessed in our legendary texts and scriptures. The ancient teachings as found in The Bhagwad Gita, The Epics, and several other scriptures have reflected the evidence of psychosocial competencies, communication skills and managerial attributes to teach the generations ahead the lessons of Ethics, Dharma, Soft Skills and Management Skills. This paper aims to trace the elements of soft skills from a Rig Veda contemporary text - 'The Panchatantra' trying to present the relevance and innovation of its teachings and bearing in the present - day scenario.
