These stories are not my stories. They have been told and retold by countless people and God alone knows who the first authors were. Each person tells these stories with some colouring, in a slightly different way. Most of the stories involve the great Mogul Emperor Akbar and his minister and court jester, Birbal; and the King Krishna Chandra and his minister and court jester, Gopal Bhañr.

I do hope that my spiritual comments will inspire the sincere seekers of the eternal Truth to lead a better, higher and more inspiring life.
