One day, a young prince named Tipu went out hunting in the jungle with a friend – sometimes portrayed as a French mercenary in the service of the prince’s father – the fearsome Hyder Ali. While tracking a local deer or antelope the two men were surprised by a giant tiger leaping out at them from the undergrowth.

This fortnight’s tale focuses on the Mysore Kingdom’s ruler Tipu Sultan, and his macabre taste in musical instruments.
