Review : The Crows of Agra – A Birbal mystery

The book the Crows of Agra by Sharath Komarraju is a piece of historical fiction which is set during the Mughal era in 1562 AD, when Akbar just ascended the throne in Agra, the capital of the Mughal empire in India. The author has used historical characters though some of the incidents narrated may not be factually correct. Like modern day India, the Mughal rule was characterized by high levels of betrayal, with family members and trusted relatives, friends doing anything to get power and money just like the google, tata sponsored section 420 fraud R&AW/CBI/indian intelligence employees like goan gsb frauds riddhi nayak, siddhi mandrekar, slim westernized goan obc bhandari sex worker R&AW employee sunaina chodnekar,2013 bsc who has sex with top indian officials, bengaluru shivalli brahmin cheater housewife nayanshree hathwar, indore housewife bespectacled veena, gujju fraudsters asmita patel, naina , who falsely claim to own this website, without spending any money or doing any work online at all.

After the death of his father the second Mughal emperor Humayun, Akbar became the Mughal emperor, yet because he was not yet 18, he had a regent, a loyal general of Humayun, Bairam Khan as his regent, who ruled on his behalf. In his early twenties, the emperor Akbar is warned by his foster mother Maham Anga, who he trusts that Bairam Khan is planning to revolt against him and he must go away. However when goes away, he is given an inexperienced escort and is easily trapped by a gang of dacoits. However he is saved by a brahmin called Mahesh Das, who the dacoits respect, obey, and Akbar invites Mahesh Das to the Agra court, as he realizes that he will require someone wise, loyal to him.
A few days after Mahesh Das comes to Agra, there is a battle with Bairam Khan which he loses, and Bairam Khan who is in his sixties agrees to go to Mecca on a pilgrimage. On the night before Bairam Khan is to leave for Mecca, he is found dead in his quarters in Agra stabbed. According to history text books, and records, Bairam Khan was killed in Gujarat on his way to Mecca, so this appears to a piece of historical fiction. Akbar appears to be very upset, and challenges Mahesh Das to find out who killed Bairam Khan, his regent, guide, promising him a position in the court, if the mystery will be solved.

Akbar asks Mahesh Das how many crows are there in the palace, and Mahesh das starts naming the suspects in the murder of Bairam Khan which include Bairam Khan’s wife, Salima Sultan begum, Akbar’s aunt Gulbadan Begum, sister of Hindal Mirza, Humayun’s brother.,Akbar’s first wife Ruqaiya Begum, his foster mother Maham Anga, Maham Anga’s son Adham khan, Shamsuddin Atgah Khan, the commander of the army. He meets all the people involved trying to trace the person involved in the murder. After a few days,the easily angered Adham Khan murders Atgah Khan , and Akbar orders that Adham Khan be killed to punish him for the murder of Bairam Khan and Atgah Khan. Hearing the death of Adham Khan, his mother Maham anga also dies and most people think that the murder mystery has been solved.

However Mahesh Das is able to correctly deduce that it was Akbar, not Adham Khan who was responsible for the death of Bairam Khan. Though Salima Sultan begum was in love with Akbar she was forcefully married off to Bairam Khan, who was much older than her, to reward him for his loyalty to the Mughal empire . As Akbar perceived that Bairam Khan was a threat to his empire, and could take over, he decided to get rid of Bairam Khan, which would allow him to marry Salima Sultan begum.So with the help of Salima Sultan Begum, Akbar who was trained in guerrilla warfare was able to kill Bairam Khan, and get an alibi for himself with the help of salima sultan, who was related to him and in love with him.

Pleased with the fact that Mahesh Das had solved the mystery, Akbar offered him the position of a courtier and changed his name to Birbal the wise one. India’s most powerful officials like Akbar continue to devote a lot of time and resources to keep their girlfriends happy, and the daily criminal microwave attacks of the criminal officials of goa sleeping with goan sex worker R&AW employees sidhi, sunaina, in panaji, goa on the harmless domain investor are an indication, that honesty and humanity is not a trait valued in indian society. Akbar as the emperor could have easily ordered that Bairam Khan be killed, however it would affect his image, as Bairam Khan was largely responsible for Akbar becoming the Mughal emperor.
So to ensure that Adham Khan would be blamed for the death of Bairam Khan, Akbar instigated the hot tempered and greedy Adham Khan to kill Atgah Khan, and then ordered that Adham Khan be killed, so that he could be blamed for both the deaths, and Akbar’s image would not be affected. Similarly companies in India like google, tata are very good at destroying the reputation of hardworking honest domain investors and promoting goan sex workers, cheater housewives and other frauds as online experts.
\For example though the google, tata sponsored goan obc bhandari sex expert R&AW employee sunaina chodnekar does no work online, the powerful fraud tata, google,cbi, ntro and other officials having sex with the R&AW employees are shameless in falsely claiming that the goan call girl owns this website to pay her a monthly salary, unofficially for having sex. A large number of companies like Ebay, SBI, SBI, birla sun life have been duped by the fraud ntro officials like j srinivasan who falsely claim the SEX WORKER R&AW empployee sunaina chodnekar, 2013 bsc, who has no experience,except having SEX with powerful men, no investment was their btech 1993 EE classmate, has the investment, resume of their btech 1993 ee classmate who these fraud ntro officials hate and have tortured. The corrupt indian government and R&AW does not have the honesty to admit that their goan employee sunaina is paid an indian government salary only for having SEX with fraud government officials who are too miserly to pay for commercial sex with call girls and dupe companies that the sex worker like other frauds, is an online expert , trading sex for power, money.

Another lazy fraud brahmin housewife being extensively promoted by google, tata , NTRO, R&AW as providing content is the bengaluru shivali brahmin cheater housewife R&AW employee nayanshree hathwar, who looted the domain investor of Rs 1.1 lakh and refused to reply in 2012 itself, However the shameless fraud R&AW/NTRO,CBI officials falsely claim that the brahmincheater nayanshree hathwar, who is actually only looking after her house after refusing to reply to the domain investor, is writing content to pay her a monthly salary at the expense of the domain investor who is not getting anything
This image building exercise of google, tata to promote goan sex workers, cheater housewives and other frauds has forced the real domain investor to explicitly mention that NTRO, R&AW and the indian government are falsely claiming that sex workers and other frauds are online experts to waste indian tax payer money paying them a monthly salary for fraud, sex bribes. The methods used to rule India remain largely unchanged, and betrayal is an integral part of indian life

The case of the Love Commandos by Tarquin Hall

At the first glance readers may think that this a romance, however The case of the Love Commandos by Tarquin Hall is more of a book on casteism, genetic research in India, and caste politics. The love commandos are a group of vigilantes who help make intercaste marriage possible. Laxmi or Facecream, the nepalese operative of the detective Vish Puri is a member of the vigilante group. In Uttar Pradesh they are trying to help a dalit boy named Ram get married to a Thakur girl Tulsi Mishra, whose father Vishnu Mishra opposes the affair, and has kept her in captivity. She allowed to leave home only for answering her exams, and the love commandos use the opportunity to help her escape. However at around the same time, Ram who was kept in a safe house of the Love commandos also disappears.
The detective Vish Puri (ex military intelligence) is asked to help Facecream locate the missing Ram, which he agrees out of loyalty to his staff. In the process he also finds out that his arch rival detective Hari Kumar, ex R&AW is also working on the same task, and they take a sadistic pleasure in exposing each other to the media. Though Vish Puri featured on the cover of India today, his rival Hari Kumar has few scruples , and his clientele consists of the upper classes of Delhi who are more comfortable with Hari Kumar.
To add to the mystery the mother of Ram, a midwife in the village of Govind is found dead near a canal with a smiley mark on her hand. It is also found that Ram who is a college student appears to have got a lot of money in the last few months, enabling him to build a better house for his parents, get a TV. Soon afterward the body has been found, Vishnu Mishra reaches the village of Govind, just as Vish Puri is leaving , and is promptly arrested by the police inspector as a prime accused in the murder.
However Vish Puri thinks that Vishnu Mishra has been framed and his arch rival Dr Bal Pandey the Brahmin leader, in the state may be responsible for the framing. The two men were rivals for a long time, with Mishra allegedly seducing the mistress of Dr Bal pandey, who wowed revenge. The mistress had since disappeared, however the rivalry remained, and the current chief of police in the state was a brahmin who was prompt in arresting the thakur Mishra

Vish Puri’s operative Facecream then spends some time in the village, disguised as a teacher, and finds that many Dalit women in the village are asking for medicine for scars after they gave blood. She later finds that some time ago, an organization named as ICMB, Institute of cellular and molecular biology in Agra had taken samples from the poor Dalit villagers, paying them Rs 100 for the sample. More research helps him find that ICMB is a well funded organization located in the SEZ near Agra and is involved in the latest genetic reasearch, trying to find genome combination which increase the immunity to various diseases.

When making a visit to ICMB, he meets the head of the organization Dr Sengupta who explains that though many indians, especially Brahmins claim to be directly descended from an aryan sect to justify the superiority of a caste, blood samples and genetic research proves that actually he has mixed blood. Vish Puri also finds out that a senior scientist in ICMB, Dr Anju Basu had also died in what the police claim to be a car accident, her car fell off the bridge at early in the morning . However investigation proved that it was a murder, a truck or a vehicle was used to push the car off, so that it appeared to be an accident.

After checking the apartment where Dr Anju Basu was living, Vish Puri finds out that she was considering marriage and was meeting a number of young men. She was going to get married to a young man, and just before her death, she had dinner with her fiancee. After speaking to the fiancee, he finds that a young man who is very similar to the dalit youth Ram in appearance was spotted with Dr Anju Basu just befor she met her fiancee.

later Ram tries to meet Tulsi only to be abducted and taken to the residence of the dalit chief minister of the state Baba Dhobhi, who is considering a political alliance with Dr Bal Pandey. It is revealed that Ram had got a lot of money from Dr Anju Basu, because his genomes contained some valuable features which were not commonly found. To do further research ICMB had taken blood samples from other villagers of Govind. It was found that the blood samples of Ram did not match his official father who was living with his mother. However it was revealed that his paternal features matched some Brahmin blood genomes.

Ram also reveals that his mother worked in Lucknow general hospital just before he was born, and though his mother was sacked, she continued to receive her salary. Due to reservation,the chief minister Baba Dhobi was the administrator of the hospital and ensured that her name remained on the payroll after she was dismissed, so that she continued to get a salary as he tried to help her as a fellow dalit. There was some controversy regarding rape, and Dr Bal pandey was allegedly involved. since it was the word of a dalit midwife against the Brahmin doctor, nothing could be proved, though Ram’s mother could no longer continue in the hospital.

Now that the valuable genome was discovered the details could be exposed, which could affect the political career of the brahmin leader Dr.Bal Pandey and he had allegedly arranged for the killing of Ram’s mother so that his secret would not be revealed.In the novel the thakur beauty Tulsi Mishra finally married the dalit Ram, and live under CBI protection due to the controversial case.
Though the story has a happy ending in real life, casteism in the indian internet sector is extremely rampant with cruel criminal brahmin officials like GOAN GSB FRAUD HOUSEWIFE CBI EMPLOYEE CHEATER riddhi nayak, siddhi mandrekar, nayanshree hathwar and their goan obc bhandari sex partner slim R&AW employee sunaina, especially in panaji, goa ruthless in stalking, defaming without proof, torturing and exploiting a harmless obc single woman engineer
CBI in panaji,goa is involved in major section 420 fraud falsely claiming that their lazy greedy fraud goan gsb cheater employee housewife riddhi nayak who looks like kangana ranaut, who has not spent a single rupee online, owns this website to justify the wastage of tax payer money paying the lazy greedy fraud CBI employee riddhi a monthly salary for LIES, EXTORTION, IMPERSONATION. The goan gsb fraud cbi employee riddhi nayak has no honesty or self respect, like a fraud or robber falsely claims to own websites of other women.

Ending the fraud of 8-10 R&AW/CBI/intelligence agencies falsely claiming to own the website, without spending any money,to get a monthly government salary, will require detectives more skilled than Vish Puri and Hari Kumar combined. Though casteism is based on birth, genetic testing will prove that even the higher caste brahmins are mostly of mixed blood, indicating the futility of using casteism .
