The Foolish & the Wise and Other Stories

Neera Jain (Author)
Synopsis This children's Treasury collection includes six tales of Akbar and Birbal. Fully illustrated with color with text in bold letters, this collection will delight children. Akbar was one of the greatest kings who ruled India. Crowned at the tender age of thirteen, Akbar successfully ruled for forty-nine years and consolidated the fabulous Mughal Empire. During his regime Muslims and Hindus lived in peace. He was not only a great conqueror but also an able administrator who attached great value to knowledge, wisdom as also the arts. Many talented people graced his court. One among them was Birbal. Birbal was known for his wit and clever way with words. Besides he was very kind and just to the poor. That is why he was the most trusted advisor to the Emperor. Over the years, many stories have been told of Akbar and Birbal. These are all folktales that have been passed on from one generation to the other. These stories may or may not be true but they contain a great deal of wisdom. They are popular among children and adults alike for they manage to amuse and stimulate the mind in a single stoke.
