A thought came to Birbal that a man would do anything for money. He expressed his feelings to Akbar. Akbar then put his finger into the lake and immediately removed it because he shivered with cold. Birbal searched far and wide until he found a poor man who was desperate enough to accept the challenge. The poor man entered the lake and Akbar had guards posted near him to make sure that he really did as promised.

A thought came to Birbal that a man would do anything for money. He expressed his feelings to Akbar. Akbar then put his finger into the lake and immediately removed it because he shivered with cold. Birbal searched far and wide until he found a poor man who was desperate enough to accept the challenge.
The poor man entered the lake and Akbar had guards posted near him to make sure that he really did as promised. The next morning the guards took the poor man to Akbar. Akbar asked the poor man if he had indeed spent the night in the lake. The poor man replied that he had. Akbar then asked the poor man how he managed to spend the night in the lake. The poor man replied that there was a street lamp nearby and he kept his attention affixed on the lamp and away from the cold. Akbar then said that there would be no reward as the poor man had survived the night in the lake by the warmth of the street lamp.
The poor man went to Birbal for help. The next day, Birbal did not go to court. The king wondering where he was, sent a messenger to his home. The messenger came back saying that Birbal would come once his Khichri Rice was cooked. The king waited hours but Birbal did not come. He found Birbal sitting on the floor near some burning twigs and a bowl filled with Khichri Rice hanging five feet above the fire.
Moral: A small ray of hope is enough to inspire the one who is ready to work hard to turn his dream into a reality. Red Hot Iron One day, one rich man wanted to punish a man named Hasan. He blamed him that he had stolen necklace from his house, and reported to the Akbar.
The case was brought in the court. God will protect you. Now Hasan could not do anything but to hold red hot iron in his hands to prove his innocence, and that he was speaking the truth. He asked Akbar to give him one day to look for that necklace again and He went home. He took advice from Birbal. But the same thing should apply to him too. If he is speaking the truth, then the red hot iron should not burn his hands also.
So let him bring that red hot iron holding in his both hands, then I will hold that iron in my bare hands. He told the Akbar that he would go and search his necklace again in his house, maybe it was misplaced somewhere there. Akbar ordered to give necklace to Hasan as a punishment to the Rich man. At times Akbar would call upon Birbal to discuss important court matters. This offended King Akbar and he felt very bad and was annoyed with Birbal.
Nowadays company matters the most, sangati ka asar hai. Clever Birbal Once an oil merchant and the villager came to Akbar with a quarrel about the money Bag.
Merchant said that When the villager came to buy oil from him he gave them the oil and collected money from them. But villager said he had never visited Oil shop. Each claimed that the bag belonged to him. Everybody in the court were surprised and was waiting eagerly how Akbar would solve this problem. Akbar asked Birbal to find the solution. He asked for some water in a bowl. The servant brought the water.
Birbal placed the bag in the bowl. After sometime everybody saw some oil float on water. Birbal told that the bag belonged to the oil merchant not to the villager. If villager didnt visit the oil shop then there would be no oil on coins or bag.
Everybody praised Birbal and the customer was punished. The dream began with Akbar and Birbal walking towards each other on a dark night It was so dark that they could not see each other, and so collided and fell. The King was happy as at least for once he had been able to defeat the Birbal. But Birbal was quite. When you climbed out of that pool of delicious Paayazam, and I out of that stinking gutter, we found that there was no water to clean ourselves and so do you know what we did?
Not only other people but also Akbar tried to defeat Birbal. Once Akbar was narrating a dream. This made a certain courtier very jealous.
Now this courtier always wanted to be chief minister, but this was not possible as Birbal filled that position. One day Akbar praised Birbal in front of the courtier.
This made the courtier very angry and he said that the king praised Birbal unjustly and if Birbal could answer three of his questions, he would accept the fact that Birbal was intelligent. Akbar always wanting to test Birbals wit readily agreed. The three questions were 1. How many stars are there in the sky 2. Where is the centre of the Earth and 3. How many men and how many women are there in the world. Immediately Akbar asked Birbal the three questions and informed him that if he could not answer them, he would have to resign as chief minister.
My friend the courtier is welcome to count them if he likes. Therefore if all people like him are killed, then and only then can one count the exact number. Next day when a farmer went to draw the water from that well, the man did not allow him to draw the water from it.
He described everything to the Emperor and asked for the justice. The Emperor called Birbal and handed over this case to him. Birbal called the man who sold the well to the farmer. You have sold the well to the farmer. He has no right to draw the water from the well. Either you pay rent to the farmer to keep your water in his well, or you take that out of his well immediately. Birbal has outwitted him. You will end up paying for it regardless of how smart you think you are.
He asked Birbal to leave the kingdom and go away. As months passed, Akbar started to miss Birbal. He regretted a decision, asking Birbal to leave the empire in anger. So Akbar sent his soldiers to find Birbal, but they failed to find him.
No one knew where Birbal was. Akbar finally found a trick. He sent a message to the head of every village to send a pot full of the wit to the Emperor. If the pot full of wit can not be sent, fill the pot with diamonds and jewels.
This message also reached Birbal, who lived in one of the villages. The people of the village got together. All started talking about what to do now? The wit is not a thing, which can be filled in the pot. How will we arrange for diamonds and jewels to fill the pot and send to the Emperor?
Everyone trusted Birbal and agreed to give him a chance. Birbal took the pot with him and went back to the farm. He had planted watermelons on his farm. He selected a small watermelon and without cutting it from the plant, he put that in the pot. He started looking after it by providing water and fertilizer regularly. Within a few days, the watermelon grew into a pot so much that it was impossible to get it out of the pot. Soon, the watermelon reached to the same size as the pot from inside.
Birbal then cut the watermelon from the vine and separated it with the pot. Akbar himself came to the village, took Birbal back with him. Think hard to find a solution for the strangest situations. Everyone in the court thought that this was the easy question compared to what emperor asks all the time. They had a relaxed look on their face.
One of the courtier replied — Sun, some said earth, others said moon, but the emperor was not convinced.
