The story of Birbal, Akbar's favourite minister and their relationship and mutual admiration are told in the illustrated picture book by Amar Chitra Katha. Birbal had won over the hearts and minds of many Mughal subjects and that of Akbar, with his humour and insight.

Many courtiers were envious of him because of his extraordinary success, and if popular narratives were to be accepted, they were constantly "busy plotting against him." Legend has it that betrayal even caused his death while leading a sizable military force on a trip to Afghanistan. We tell the well-known story of how Akbar met Birbal in this collection of stories about him, along with other anecdotes.
