Adventures of Birbal


Retold by Rohinton Mody

Every great ruler needs a friend like Birbal- faithful, intelligent and blessed with a wonderful sense of humour. Akbar, the powerful Mughal emperor, relies on his wise minister to solve problems that range from palace intrigue to demanding wives. Birbal resolves every tricky situation with characteristic aplomb; and soon everyone, including his sworn enemies, comes under the spell of this gentle nobleman. The Adventures of Birbal is a beautifully illustrated retelling of the classic tales.
