Bedtime Story No.1 – The Moustache Story
One Morning King Akbar was sitting on his throne talking to his ministers about moustaches, One of the Ministers said “I don’t even let my barber touch my mustache, I trim it myself” while the other exclaimed that if he went home without a moustache his wife would leave him. Upon hearing this, Emperor Akbar says that anyone that touches my moustache shall be executed, all of his ministers agree to this insane statement. Emperor Akbar asked Birbal about his thoughts on the same, Birbal replied “I don’t believe that is true your majesty, I could even say that you would be pleased if I feed that individual sweets”
Akbar asked Birbal to prove his unimaginable theory in front of the court or he will be punished accordingly. Birbal asked for permission to leave the court, while the rest of the ministers opposed accusing him of trying to flee the court. Akbar granted Birbal permission and he left.
Few Minutes later, Birbal returned with a child in his hands. Birbal quickly handed the child to Akbar. Akbar confusingly asked Birbal “Why have gone and got my grandson instead of proving your theory?”. Birbal Replied “Your Majesty, look at what your grandson is doing, He is pulling your moustache and playing with it, now tell me Your Majesty, are you going to punish him for this” “No” Exclaimed Akbar. “Then shall I feed him sweets?” Birbal asked joyfully. Akbar was pleased with Birbal’s intelligence and rewarded him with some precious jewels.
