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.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
