Akbar and Birbal’s Famous Stories
Let’s Start Akbar and Birbal’s Stories
1. Protection from footprints of an elephant:-Story of Akbar Birbal
Once, Emperor Akbar had a serious feud with Birbal over an issue. He removed Birbal from the post of Diwan and appointed his wife’s brother in place of Birbal. Disguising his identity, Birbal started living in a nearby village.
One day, the emperor decided to visit a dargah. While returning from there, he saw footprints of an elephant. He decides to find out his brother-in-law’s intelligence. He asked her to guard that mark for three days. Later the emperor went back to his palace and the first day passed the footprint to his brother-in-law, the new diwan did not get any food, passed through the second day without even eating.
He was starving on the third day and became very weak indeed. On the fourth day, he somehow pulled himself up to the emperor and said, “Look at the wall, I could clearly see the footprints of the elephant as per your instructions that his new divan lacked novelty and was like Birbal Were not able or quick. So, he found a way to get her back.
He announced that all the zamindars of nearby villages should bring wells with them, otherwise they would have to pay a fine of Rs. 10,000 each. All the zamindars were astonished to hear this strange order and wondered how they could make an inanimate thing like a good trick and go to the emperor’s court with them.
The order of the emperor of the village where Birbal lived was also heard. Birbal thought of a plan and asked the zamindar of his village to act accordingly. The zamindar along with some other villagers went to meet the emperor, but he did not enter his capital. They stayed outside the city and sent an emissary to the king, “Hazur, according to your orders we are here with our well, now you have to send your well to welcome them.”
When Akbar heard this, he understood that it could only be Birbal’s mind. He immediately sent his men to find and bring back Birbal. When Birbal arrived at the court, the emperor warmly welcomed Birbal and made him his Diwan. And then, the emperor asked Birbal to protect the footprints of the elephant.
Birbal promised to complete the work and left the court. He fixed an iron bar near the footmark and tied a rope of 50 yards to it. He then told the villagers that the houses that would come inside the circumference of that rope would be demolished to protect that footprint.
People requested him not to do so and offered him money to not demolish their houses. He also promised to protect the footprints of the elephant day and night. In a short time, Birbal has spent Rs. 1 Lac. He deposited that money in the royal treasury and told the king that the work was done and Rs. 100,000 was deposited in his treasury.
The emperor called his brother-in-law and told him, “You were hungry for three days and achieved nothing, but Birbal protected the footprint by earning only one lakh rupees a day.” The brother-in-law accepted the fact that Birbal was in fact the most qualified candidate for the post of Diwan.
Moral: You can succeed by thinking creatively and motivating others to accomplish your goal, even if the task seems impossible.

3. The Modern Story of Akbar-Birbal
Recent thing. Akbar and Birbal were sitting in the meeting and talking among themselves.
Akbar: Show me five fools from this kingdom …!
Birbal begins the search.
Just 2 months later with only 2 people back.
Akbar said- I told you to bring five fools!
Birbal said- I have brought Hujur. Be given a chance to present.
Birbal said- Huzoor this is the first fool. I also saw it sitting on the bullock cart carrying the bag on the head and on asking, I got the answer that there is not much load on the bull, so I am carrying the bag on the head.
Accordingly, this is the first fool!
The second fool is this other man, standing in front of you. I saw grass on the roof above its house. It was feeding its buffalo with its buffalo on the roof. When I looked and asked, I got the answer that the grass settles on the roof, then I take the buffalo up and feed the grass. Who can be more foolish than a man who cannot cut and throw grass on the roof of his deck and feed the grass by taking the buffalo to that hole?
Birbal continued – Jahanpanah, there is so much work in his kingdom. I have to handle the whole policy, yet I wasted a month in finding fools, so I am the third fool.
Whereas, the responsibility of the entire state rests with you. All the work is going to be done by the brain. Nothing is going to happen to fools, yet you are looking for fools, so you have a fourth fool where you are.
Akbar: Then who became the fifth fool?
Birbal: I want to tell you where.
There is a lot of work in the office. Excluding work around the world, leaving home and family, ignoring the wife and children, what is on WhatsApp and Facebook and the fifth fool who wasted his time in finding and knowing, according to me, the fifth fool is the same.
4. Stories of Akbar-Birbal: Whose Bag of Money
The court was set up Emperor Akbar was watching the kingdom. The concierge then informed that two people wanted to come to settle their quarrel.
The king summoned both of them. Both entered the court and stood before the emperor.
What did the king say to the people who came to settle the dispute …
Say what is your problem? The king asked.
‘Huzoor my name is Kashi, I am a Teli and do business of selling oil and Huzur is this butcher.
He came to my shop and bought oil and also took my bag full of money. When I grabbed it and asked for my bag, it started telling it as its own;
“There will definitely be justice, now you say what do you have to say?” The king told the butcher. ‘Huzoor, my name is Ramadan and I am a butcher, Huzoor, when I counted the money on the sale of meat at my shop today and picked up the bag, it came to me and snatched the bag from me. Now I am deposing my right on that, Huzoor, give me the poor’s money back. ‘
The king got confused after listening to both of them. He could not understand to whom he should pass judgment. He asked Birbal to decide.
Birbal took a bag of money from him and sent the two out for a while. Birbal ordered water from a servant in a bowl and took out some coins from that bag and poured it into the water and watched the water carefully.
Then said to the king- ‘Huzoor, by pouring coins in this water, the oil is not stirring even a small fraction in the water. If these coins were of oil, they would have smeared oil on the coins and that oil would have been seen in water also. ‘
The king also put coins in the water, looked at the water carefully and then agreed with Birbal.
Birbal called them both to the court and said- ‘I know whose bag is this. Kashi, you are lying, this bag is from the Ramzan butcher. ‘
‘Huzoor, this bag is mine.’ Kashi spoke once again.
Birbal showed him a bowl of water containing coins and said, “If this bag belongs to you, then there must be some oil on these coins, but you also see … the oil is not even visible.”
Kashi became silent.
Birbal gave Ramzan butcher his bag and had Kashi put in jail.
