Gopalpur, located in the northeastern Indian state of Bihar, is a village that has a story so unique, it seems to have come out of a storybook. But no book in the English language has this special tale. At Gopalpur weddings, of both Hindus and Muslims, this story is recited still, three centuries later, in order to bless the bride and ward off evil. Through the medium of narrative poetry, this book unveils the tale to the world. This is the story of brave Muslim and Hindu men and women in the Moghul era, and how they helped each other in times of danger. This is the tale of an Indian village's beginning and a tyrant's end. This is the story of Gopalpur. The book was written by Umme Raza, of North America, at the age of eighteen after visiting her ancestral village of Gopalpur.
