A gripping Mughal era tale in narrative verse, based on a true story of India. Weddings, chai, inheritance, swords, and silk. Women’s rights, interfaith relations, and political oppression.

This is the story of Gopalpur.

At Gopalpur weddings, families across classes and religions still read this 300-year-old story in their ceremonies, in honour of this tale of sacrifice.

Through the medium of narrative poetry, this book unveils the tale to the English-speaking world for the first time ever, by a descendant of the character Haji. Canadian writer Umme Raza composed this story in English after visiting her ancestral village of Gopalpur.
