Tales of Birbal (Comic Book)
Tales of Birbal (Comic Book)
Description
Birbal The Wise
The wit and wisdom of Birbal had endeared him not only to Akbar, but also to a vast majority of subjects of the Mughal empire. He had the rare distinction of achieving immense popularity during his lifetime, next only to that of Akbar. He was a good administrator, a good soldier and perhaps what pleased Akbar the most – a good jester. Less known is the fact that he was also a good poet. He wrote under the pen name, Brahma and a collection of his poems is preserved in the Bharatpur museum.

Though popularly known as Birbal, his real name was Maheshdas. It is believed that he belonged to a poor Brahmin family of Trivikrampur (now known as Trikawanpur), on the banks of the river Yamuna. It was only by virtue of his sharp intellect that rose to be a minister in the court of Akbar. His phenomenal success made many courtiers jealous and, if popular accounts are to be believed, they were busy plotting against him. According to legend, even his death, while he was on an expedition to Afghanistan at the head of a large military force, was due to treachery. Though he was killed in the battle, the expedition was successful and subdued the turbulent province.

Akbar had found in Birbal, a true friend and sympathiser. Of the handful of followers of the Dine-e-Elahi, the new faith preached by Akbar, there was only one Hindu – Birbal.
