Work is on in full swing in the Royal Peacock Garden to house a wondrous cage that would have forty hill mynas. Soon the cage is full of twittering birds and they are entrusted to Kale Khan’s care. But he steals a myna for his motherless daughter who has long been asking for one…
Does Kale khan receive a royal pardon … What lies in store for the beautiful city of Lucknow?
Set in the times of the reign of Sultan Wajid Ali Shah, this is a poignant story of a father’s love for his daughter – a story that may well have been lost in the confusion and tumult of changing times.
