Moral Stories
A Wise Counting
Emperor Akbar was in the habit of putting riddles and puzzles to his courtiers. He oftenasked questions which were strange and witty. It took much wisdom to answer thesequestions.Once he asked a very strange question. The courtiers were dumb folded by his question.Akbar glanced at his courtiers. As he looked, one by one the heads began to hang low insearch of an answer. It was at this moment that Birbal entered the courtyard. Birbal whoknew the nature of the emperor quickly grasped the situation and asked, "May I know thequestion so that I can try for an answer".Akbar said, "How many crows are there in this city?"Without even a moment's thought, Birbal replied "There are fifty thousand five hundredand eighty nine crows, my lord"."How can you be so sure?” asked Akbar.Birbal said, "Make you men count, My lord. If you find more crows it means some havecome to visit their relatives here. If you find less number of crows it means some havegone to visit their relatives elsewhere".Akbar was pleased very much by Birbal's wit.

Only then I can save my things."He bought a nice, big fat cat and let him stay there. The cat had a nice time hunting themice and killing them. The mice could not move freely now.

Can someone give a suggestion"?All the mice sat and brooded. A smart looking mouse stood up and said, "The cat movessoftly. That is the problem. If we can tie a bell around her neck, then things will be fine.We can know the movements of the cat".“Yes, that is answer,” stated all the mice.
