Stories of Birbal( Book )

5 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wandering through his kingdom disguised as an ordinary citizen, Emperor Akbar is struck by the intelligence of a young man who is able to recognise him. The young man is Birbal, and Akbar invites him to his court. One of the navaratnas (nine gems) of Akbar's court, Birbal is known for his sharp intelligence and wit. Everyone comes to Birbal when they are in trouble - be it an impoverished old lady, an artist, or Akbar himself. Birbal's wisdom and honesty makes him one of Akbar's most trusted courtiers. He outwits and teases everyone who is at fault, from the smallest cheat to the emperor himself. He makes sure that justice is served, and that even the most helpless person is given his due in the Mughal court"--Page 4 of cover

"Over the centuries India has been ruled by men and women who as great conquerors and able administrators have shaped the history of this land. This Pancharatna features five such rulers. Chandragupta Maurya defeated his rivals to found the Mauryan dynasty which reached unprecedented power under his grandson, Ashoka, who later saw the futility of war and renounced violence. Samudragupta of the Gupta dynasty, was a military genius. Harsha ascended the throne at age 16. His story has been taken from the Harshacharita and from the accounts of the Chinese traveller, Hiuen Tsang. Krishnadeva Raya of the Vijayanagara dynasty was described by the Portuguese traveller, Domingo Paes, as the 'perfect king'"--Page 4 of cover
