Akbar, the great emperor, had a problem that no one could solve. So, he called Birbal, his most intelligent and trusted advisor.
Akbar explained the problem to Birbal and asked for a solution. Birbal listened carefully and confidently replied, 'Give me three days, Your Majesty.'
Birbal went to his home and thought hard about the problem. Suddenly, an idea hit him. He smiled and began preparing.
Three days later, Birbal stood before Akbar with a solution. Akbar was amazed and asked, 'How did you do it, Birbal?'
Birbal answered, 'Your Majesty, I listened carefully to your problem and thought about it deeply. I believed in my intelligence and confidence to find the answer.'
Akbar appreciated Birbal's intelligence and confidence. He said, 'Birbal, you are truly wise. Your listening skills and self-belief are admirable.'
From that day forward, Akbar relied on Birbal's intelligence and confidence to solve many problems. And Birbal never disappointed him.
