The 17th-century Jagat Seths are often referred to as India’s Medicis for their wealth. Rich enough to sponsor the British win at Plassey, they were India’s largest moneylenders of their time. The bull run came to an end with the execution of its patriarchs in 1763. With the single largest source of loans gone the British were soon scrambling for funds to pay for expensive military campaigns. One such campaign against Tipu Sultan proved back-breaking expensive and led to the establishment of India’s first banking service 20 years after the Jagat Seths collapsed. It was called the Bank of Bengal!

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    Birgitta Johansson

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
