Maharaja of Mastipur & Palace of Pranks from Maharaja series
At the centre of this world is a Maharaja with a most peculiar hobby, or should we say obsession! Discover what it is and what makes each and every member of his family so fun and zany! There is a Princess and Prince, the Maharani herself, the Maharaja’s mama and the Maharaja’s most important minister who is of course Pranky, Minister of Pranks, gags and antics!
They all live in the vast kingdom of Mastipur with much room for exploration and adventure.
Most kings are famous for their great achievements like building amazing palaces or expanding their lands but not the Maharaja of Mastipur. Although he did rule his kingdom very well what made him truly famous, or rather notorious, was his love for playing practical jokes on anybody and everybody. He was also famous for hosting royal guests from all over India but they were usually victims of his grand and elaborate pranks. It seems he didn’t entertain his guests as much as they entertained him!
With such a reputation it was truly a wonder that he was able to convince any guest to set foot in his palace. But now he has a truly special visitor. The King of England is set to arrive in a month and the Maharaja is not simply sitting around and twiddling his thumbs. He has got something in the works for sure!
The Maharaja of Mastipur is a kind and intelligent ruler who is also a big kid with unlimited resources for pranks. It’s all for a good laugh, he never means any harm, but sometimes his ‘victims” need the pranks (a lesson!) more than the Maharaja. He loves his mother, the Rajmata, even though she roundly disapproves of any and all pranks.
Pranky, Minister of Prank: He is the genius master of cause and effect – pull a chair out from somebody and they fall on their butt…or could he build something that makes them bounce? These are the thoughts constantly running through Pranky’s brain.
