‘Chouboli’ is set in times of Rajas and Maharajas, though the concerns addressed are as relevant today as are the contemporary references we might add. The story of Chouboli weaves an enchanting tapestry of royalty, clever princesses, gender equality, wondrous men, power, riddles and much more. The story gifts us insights through the lyrical beauty and wry wit of Vijaydan Detha.
