This is the Akbar Birbal funny Story in English. Akbar was sitting with Birbal in court. Akbar thought of taking Birbal’s test.
Akbar said to Birbal, “Go find me the four biggest fools of this kingdom.
Birbal said,” Yes King. Birbal started the search.
After a month, Birbal came back with two men.
Akbar (angrily) said, “I had asked to bring four fools and you brought only two.
Birbal said, “My King, I have brought it. Please give me a chance to present.
Akbar said, Okay!!.
Birbal presented the first fool. I saw him, he was sitting on the bullock cart carrying the bag on his head.
On asking, I got the answer that I don’t want to load too much on a bull. Hence I am carrying the bag on my head.” It proves…he is a fool.
Pointing to the other man, Birbal said,” I saw that grass was growing on the roof of his house.
He was feeding grass to his buffalos by taking them on the terrace.
When I asked the reason, I said that if the grass grows on the roof, I take the buffalos up and feed them.
Majesty, This man feeds the poor buffalo upstairs. Instead of feeding the buffalo by cutting grass and bringing it down, then His wisdom can be clearly estimated from this.
My King, there is so much work in your state. I have to do a lot of work, yet I wasted a month looking for fools, so I have become a fool… that’s why I am the third fool.
My Majesty, the responsibility of the entire state is on you. Only those with brains will do all the work, fools will not be able to do anything. Still, you are looking for fools, so the King became the fourth fool.
Akbar could not live without smiling at Birbal’s cleverness and wit.
