One day Akbar drew a line on the floor and ordered his ministers, “Make this line shorter. Don’t rub out any part of it.” Everyone was puzzled. No one could think of any way to make the line shorter.

Birbal started smiling. When it was his turn, he went near the line and drew a longer line under it.

Everyone in the court saw what he did. The king praised him and said, “That’s true. The first line is shorter, now. Birbal you’re really great!”
