You may have not heard of Nasreddin Hodja, but in the Middle East, Central Asia, and parts of Europe, Nasreddin Hodja is a famous folk character. His stories have been told across a vast geographic area extending from Hungary through India to China, and from Southern Siberia to North Africa. Over the centuries millions of kids have grown up listening to the stories of Nasreddin Hodja’s legendary wit and droll trickery.

Nasreddin Hodja is portrayed as a wise man and a simpleton at the same time. In all his anecdotes, Hodja finds a way out of the most delicate situations with his wit, wisdom and common sense, often confounding his interlocutor with absurd, and at the same time wise statements.
