The Birbal Stories... Solve Your Problems The Birbal Way....
My dear friends,
My perception of reading an article is first and foremost to enjoy reading, second to learn something new out of it, and third and most important is to get inspiration and relaxation after reading it. There is no better article than “Birbal and his ability to solve the problems” to get inspiration and we can adapt one or two tips from his principles in our lives too.
Here is a new thread for all of us to read, to enjoy, to inspire and to relax…
So, Come on friends, let us together… Relax, Recreate and Re invent our childhood once again through this witty yet wise Birbal- one of the Navaratnas of Akbar the great’s court.. Regards Anandi

One day Akbar asked Birbal, "Birbal, can you tell me how many bangles are on your wife's hand?" Birbal said, "No, Huzoor, I cannot." "You cannot? Although everyday you see her hand, still you cannot tell how many bangles are on her hand? How is that?" said Akbar.
Birbal said, "Let's go to the garden, Your Majesty. And I will tell you "How is that"." And they both went to the garden. They both went down a small staircase which led to the garden. After reaching in the garden Birbal asked, "You daily climb up and down this small staircase, could you tell how many steps it has?"
Akbar smiled and then changed the subject.
The Hen or the Egg.
At the end of Akbar’s Durbar, a pandit came to the court & said he wanted to question him. Akbar was tired & told Birbal: “Please answer the pandit’s questions fast. I want to end this Durbar.”
The pandit said: “I’ll give you a choice. You can either answer one difficult or a hundred easy ones.”
Birbal saw Akbar would have no patience to sit through a hundred questions and opted for one difficult one.
Pandit: “Which came first, the hen or the egg.”
Birbal: “the hen, of course!”
Pandit: “How can you be so sure?”
Birbal: “I am afraid that is your second question. I agreed to answer only one!”
Management Moral: if you want to trap somebody, ensure you close all the exit routes but don’t get trapped yourself! Or else you may become an unexpected victim.
