Shishu Sansaar | Birbal Stories-1
|Story No 26|
Once Akbar asked Birbal to bring four fools of the first order to him. He said - "It is not difficult because this world is full of fools. Birbal said - "OK" and asked some time to find them, which Akbar readily gave to him.
Now Birbal started looking for fools. He was going somewhere that he saw a man carrying a large plate on which were kept some clothes, betel leaves and sweets. He looked like a fool to Birbal, so he asked him - "Where are you going to? And to whom you are carrying this?" The man replied - "My wife has remarried. Now they have a child so I am taking this gift for them." Birbal got convinced that he was a first class fool, so he considered him a good candidate to take to the king.
At another time
he saw a man riding a buffalo carrying a bundle of grass on his head.
Birbal thought he was also a fool, so he asked him - "Why are you
carrying this bundle on your head?"
So next morning he took
those two people to Akbar's court and presented them to him as the biggest fools.
When the King heard about them, he laughed a lot on their foolishness.
