Set in Bold type and large format, this illustrated rib-tickling collection of royal stories comes to us in an undiluted form through the ages.
Birbal, one of the famous 'Nine Gems' in the royal court of Emperor Akbar, was the most wise and witty of them all and was held in great respect by the Emperor himself. He had to always face a barrage of perplexing questions from the Emperor and the courtiers alike, who took great delight in putting 'teasers' to him for the sake of fun and laughter.
Birbal always faced the challenges gallantly and in good humor and came off with flying colors. Even Emperor Akbar had to bow to his opinions, knowledge and witty solutions.
How far these legends, that have been compiled through the pages of this book, are historically true, has never been found out, for the simple reason that the supporting documents may not be existing in each and every case. So, it is more fun to enjoy these anecdotes, as they are, rather than to dig out deep and look for the sources of their origin.
