About the Book: The Treasure of Kafur Hindustan, 1580 AD. The Mughal Emperor Akbar is at the height of his power, seemingly invincible. But twenty years of war have earned him many enemies and rebellion is brewing, led by Asaf Baig, the tyrannical ruler of Khandesh. Baig has stumbled upon the knowledge that the whereabouts of the fabulous lost treasure of Malik Kafur, which will guarantee victory to Akbars enemies, is known to an old woman called Ambu. Baig kidnaps Ambu to wrest the knowledge of the treasure from her but her twenty-year-old grandson, Dattatreya, escapes and flees across Hindustan to enlist the help of the the one person who has the most reason to stop Baig the Mughal Emperor himself. Staying one step ahead of capture and death, Datta is swept up in a world of kings and warrior princesses, of uncommon friendships and an implacable evil and a desperate race against time to save his grandmother and the Empire.

     A surprise package - total paisa vasool 14 February, 2014 On
    The book is clearly a 'treasure hunt' story BUT the treasure is NOT at the core of the story.

    Someone wants the treasure ... someone with the ambitions to rule the country. The kid and his grandmother, who know the secret of the treasure's hiding place are discovered and now running from the tyrant. The kid has to reach Akbar for protection .
    Simple ... isn't it? Not really.

    A nice story has been woven around this basic story and there is a nice set of characters that have been added to the storyline ... characters who bring the story to life .. And some of these characters are ANIMALs ... and that is ONE BIG SURPRISE from the book.

    The animals … a cow, ravens, a very large parrot and so on … They are the companions of the kid and they all communicate telepathically. This makes the story very interesting as these animals protect the 'kid' from the evil forces.

    The book is a surprise. It is nothing like you might have expected and get a feeling of 'total paisa vasool'
