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.
Subhadra Sen Gupta writes on the many aspects of Indian history, Culture, and travel. For many years she has been writing historical fiction for children. This is her second collection of short stories.
