Stories of Gopal, the jester, are enjoyed much in the same way as those of Birbal and Tenali Ramakrishna. This book recounts some of the humorous anecdotes of Gopal, the chief jester in the court of Maharaja Krishna Chandra of Bengal. Many stories are told of how the Maharaja tries to outwit the Nawab and how Gopal assists in these endeavours. In every story, it is Gopal who emerges the hero.
