The tales of Akbar and Birbal have been passed on from generation to generation, enthralling young and old listeners alike. This book brings together a selection of these stories, along with fascinating historical details about the Mughal court, the emperor and his witty courtier.
From the time that a chance meeting in the forest brought them together, the emperor and his minister faced dilemmas that ranged from the ethical to the personal, from debates on the true nature of justice to the problems of hen-pecked husbands. Amita Sarin recreates the Mughal court in all its grandeur and vitality.
