|Hodjaa's Story No 2|
One day, when Akbar saw Hodjaa coming on foot, he promised him to give a horse. Accordingly, he instructed his stable man to give a horse to Hodjaa. Now, it so happened that the stable man selected a very weak and sick horse from the stable and sent it to Hodjaa's house. The horse was so weak and sick that it died on the same night it was delivered.
When next day Akbar saw Hodjaa coming on foot again, he asked in surprise, "What happened to your horse, Hodjaa, I arranged for you yesterday?" Hodjaa said, "Jahaanpanaah, The horse had a fleet of feet that it crossed the distance from Earth to Heaven in one night only."
Akbar was very sorry to know this, and this time he arranged a very good horse for him.
