One day a father took his young son to the pet shop to pick up a puppy as a birthday present and the boy spent one hour looking over the collection of little dogs in the window.
Birbal arrived late for a function and the emperor was displeased.
“My child was crying and I had to placate him,” explained the courtier.
“Does it take so long to calm down a child?” asked the emperor. “It appears you know nothing about child rearing. Now you pretend to be a child and I shall act as your father and I will show you how you should have dealt with your child. Go on, ask me for whatever he asked of you.”
“I want a cow,” said Birbal.
Akbar ordered a cow to be brought to the palace.
“I want its milk. I want its milk,” said Birbal, imitating the voice of a small child.
“Milk the cow and give to him,” said Akbar to his servants.
The cow was milked and the milk was offered to Birbal. He drank a little and then handed the bowl back to Akbar.
“Now put the rest of it back into the cow, put it back, put in back, put it back…” wailed Birbal.
The emperor was flabbergasted and quietly left the room.
A school teacher used to take a short nap every afternoon. When his pupils asked him why he did so, he said that he went to dreamland to meet ancient sages.
One extremely hot day some of the pupils fell asleep in the afternoon. When the school-teacher chided them, they said:
“We went to meet the sages in dreamland.”
“What did they say?” demanded the teacher.
“We asked them if a school- teacher came there every afternoon, but they said they had seen no such person.”
Moral of the Story :You can fool some people sometime.
One upon a time there was a fat man. He had a strong hefty body- so much so that he had to struggle a lot to get through the door of his house.
One day a young boy happened to came that way and saw the man forcing himself inside the house. The boy couldn’t control his laughter and said, “If you step aside for a moment, I will show you how to get in.”
The man was amused to hear the words of the young boy and said; “I knew the way even before you were born.”
The young boy had no words to say and realized his folly that he should not have advised the man who was quite older than him.
