In these dozen stories you will travel back in time to the India of the past. But these stories are much more interesting than your history lessons!

These are stories about how children lived in the times of King Ashoka, Emperor Akbar, Raja Raja Chola and during the Uprising of 1857. You will meet Mughal princesses, a magical drummer and a very bad-tempered Lucknowi nawab. Also, there are gentle Buddhist monks, excited soldiers and a ghost or two.

After you read these stories, you’ll agree that history can be pretty interesting—because it is the story of our land and its people. It is not just about deadly dull dates and impossible-to-spell names of kings. And I totally agree with all history students that three kings named Chandragupta is very unfair! So let us go time-travelling, the journey will be great fun!
