Sulekha is studying in Class V and has been allowed by her principal to accompany her mother to Hampi, on the condition that she produces a full report about life in the Vijayanagar empire on her return. In Hampi, Sulekha meets the cocky TJ, who claims to be a descendant of one of Vijayanagar's most famous citizens, Tenali Raman, and together they start collecting stories about the jester and his kingdom.

Tenali, it turns out, had a solution to every problem that befell the kingdom—from the mundane to the bizarre: How do you carry a pot brimming with holy water over hundreds of miles, without spilling a single drop? The king wants to build a palace he has seen only in his dreams, how can he be stopped? And a man is to be hanged for having a 'bad-luck' face, can Tenali prevent this?

As they exchange anecdotes about Tenali Raman,Sulekha and her friends' also learn more about the Vijayanagar empire, King Krishnadevaraya and what life was like in sixteenth-century sout PENGUIN INDIA

Wounderfully witty and bubbling over v and facts, this book is not just about one of India's sharpest minds, it is a peep into a vibrant period in Indian history.
