19-The Noblest Beggar
One day the Emperor asked Birbal, "Birbal, is it possible to be the "noblest" and the "lowest" together?" Birbal said, "Yes, Jahaanpanaah" "Then bring me such a person to me."
Birbal went and returned next day with a beggar and presenting him to Akbar said, "This is the lowest among all of your subjects, Jahaanpanaah" Akbar asked, "Good, that may be true, but I don't see that how he can be the noblest?"
"He has been given the honor of having an audience with the Emperor, that makes him the noblest among the beggars, Jahaanpanaah." Akbar was very happy to hear this answer that he gave lots of money to that beggar.
