Tales of Birbal (Comic Book)
Tales of Birbal (Comic Book)
Description
Birbal The Wise
The wit and wisdom of Birbal had endeared him not only to Akbar, but also to a vast majority of subjects of the Mughal empire. He had the rare distinction of achieving immense popularity during his lifetime, next only to that of Akbar. He was a good administrator, a good soldier and perhaps what pleased Akbar the most – a good jester. Less known is the fact that he was also a good poet. He wrote under the pen name, Brahma and a collection of his poems is preserved in the Bharatpur museum.

Though popularly known as Birbal, his real name was Maheshdas. It is believed that he belonged to a poor Brahmin family of Trivikrampur (now known as Trikawanpur), on the banks of the river Yamuna. It was only by virtue of his sharp intellect that rose to be a minister in the court of Akbar. His phenomenal success made many courtiers jealous and, if popular accounts are to be believed, they were busy plotting against him. According to legend, even his death, while he was on an expedition to Afghanistan at the head of a large military force, was due to treachery. Though he was killed in the battle, the expedition was successful and subdued the turbulent province.

Akbar had found in Birbal, a true friend and sympathiser. Of the handful of followers of the Dine-e-Elahi, the new faith preached by Akbar, there was only one Hindu – Birbal.

Though popular known as Birbal, his real name was Maheshdas. It is believed that he belonged to a poor Brahmin family of Trivikrampur (now known as Tikawanpur), which is situated on the bank of the River Yamuna. It was only by virtue of his sharp intellect the he rose to be a minister at the court of Akbar.

He was a good administrator, a brave soldier and perhaps 0 what pleased Akbar the most – a good jester. Hardly known is the fact that he was also a good poet. He wrote under the nam0e, ‘Brahma’ and a collection of his poems is preserved in the Bharatpur Museum.

In the following stories, Akbar is portrayed as more legendary than historical. Raja Birbal, the hero of these stories, is hardly mentioned in history. Yet, the stories of Akbar and Birbal have continued to be a vital part of the folklore of India.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
