Rembrandt sketched portraits of Jahangir. Akbar’s pet cheetah had its own personal drum procession. A British official often paraded across Chandni Chowk with his 13 Indian wives on elephants behind him. Mahatma Gandhi took his goat, Nirmala, with him everywhere – even via ship to London! Discover even more amazing facts about our grand old country in this volume. Travel through time and see how people lived, why things happened and how we came to be what we are. Written by BBC Mastermind ‘Champion of Champions’ Archana Garodia Gupta and history-geek Shruti Garodia, this volume covers the centuries from the Mughals to Modi, and continues the story of India’s movers and shakers, artists and traders, patriots and traitors, and the millions of ordinary folk.

Filled with photographs, illustrations, activities and quotable facts, this is one retelling of history you don’t want to miss.
