Clever Birbal

Once an oil merchant and the villager came to Akbar with a quarrel about the money Bag.

Merchant said that When the villager came to buy oil from him he gave them the oil and collected money from them. But villager said he had never visited Oil shop. Each claimed that the bag belonged to him.

Everybody in the court were surprised and was waiting eagerly how Akbar would solve this problem.

Akbar asked Birbal to find the solution. He asked for some water in a bowl. The servant brought the water. Birbal placed the bag in the bowl. After sometime everybody saw some oil float on water. Birbal told that the bag belonged to the oil merchant not to the villager. If villager didnt visit the oil shop then there would be no oil on coins or bag.

Everybody praised Birbal and the customer was punished.
