Description
About the Book

Meet a courtesan in Mughal times posing for a portrait and a nameless monk waiting for a boat by the Ganga in Kashi. Discover Ashoka's most famous queen, a slave in Aurangzeb's court and a Rajput princess of a desert kingdom.

In this collection of historical stories, travel back in time to the days of our vibrant, colourful past and the fascinating lives of the people. Stories not just about kings, nawabs and begums but also ordinary people who led extraordinary lives-boatmen, temple dancers, miniature painters and a feisty maid.

These intricately imagined, sensitively told stories are set in the times of Ashoka, the Mughals and the Cholas. Stories that bring alive those forgotten days of a many-hued land and its amazing people.

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
