How many crows are there in this land?
Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
Only Birbal knows…

Whatever the question, Birbal – cunning advisor to Mughal Emperor Akbar – has the answer! Mashi Theatre’s travelling storytellers stop by to share the enchanting Tales of Birbal, ancient stories of adventure and problem-solving. Akin to Aesop’s Fables, these tales have been treasured for centuries across the Indian subcontinent. Using puppetry and music, Mashi invites a new generation to unearth the richness in these legends.
