      The gods and demons come together to churn the ocean using the mountain of Manthara and the serpent Vasuki to get the elixir of immortality. Uruvashi, the most beautiful woman in all the worlds, created by the god Narayana from his thigh, descends to earth only to fall in love with a mere mortal. Savitri tricks Death into doing something he has never done before. Emperor Akbar challenges Birbal to find the ten biggest fools of Agra. These and many other tales of boons and curses, love and betrayal, wit and humour, valour and pride, drawn from the Mahabharata, Ramayana, Panchatantra and traditional folklore of India are brought together in this fascinating collection.
