'This is a story about two magicians - great and powerful sorcerers, sorcerers with the power to defy the will of God....'

Commissioned by the Mughal court for the entertainment of emperor Akbar the Tilism-e-hoshruba or “The Land of the Enchanted Senses” are stories about a land created by sorcery and ruled by sorcerers where anything is possible and everything is fair!
