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 that 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.
