# initialising _dictionary
ini_dict = {'a' : 'akshat', 'b' : 'bhuvan', 'c': 'chandan'}
  
# printing iniial_dictionary
print ("iniial_dictionary", str(ini_dict))
  
# getting items in sorted order
print ("\nItems in sorted order")
for key in sorted(ini_dict):
    print (ini_dict[key])

print ("\nItems in sorted order")
for key, value in sorted(ini_dict.iteritems(),
                         key = operator.itemgetter(1), 
                         reverse = False):
    print key, " ", value
