All the stories presented in this volume have been sourced from the archives of Amrita Bharati, media wing of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan whose founder was Kulapati Munshi, a prolific writer and champion of Indian culture and traditions. The stories have been penned by Luis Fernandes, former editor (2007-11) of Tinkle comics. He is also the author of several Amar Chitra Katha titles and an offbeat children's book, The Guest Who Came to Dinner published by Ratna Sagar in 1995. The illustrations are done by veteran artist Gautam Sen.
