210 views

One day, all the courtiers from Akbar's court were gathered in the assembly hall when one of them told the Emperor that all his valuables had been stolen by a thief the previous night.

This shocked the Emperor to his core as the place where that courter stayed was the most secured in the kingdom. The Emperor thought that it is not at all possible for an outsider to enter into the courtier's house and steal the valuables. Only another courtier could commit this crime. He quickly called Birbal to identify the thief.

Birbal thought for a while and successfully solved the mystery by identifying the thief in just one statement. What did Birbal say?

Birbal said, Jahanpanah, the thief has a straw in his beard?
Listening to this, the Emperor huffed, A straw in his beard?
While all the courtiers stood still, Alim Khan quickly ran his hand up and down his discoloured beard to pull out the straw (that never existed) before anybody else could see it.
Birbal saw him doing this and pointed out at him declaring him the thief thereby solving the mystery.

Birbal proved his wittiness once again and was rewarded with gold coins.

Emperor Akbar once ruled over India. He was a wise and intelligent ruler, and he had in his court the Nine Gems, his nine advisors, who were each known for a particular skill. One of these Gems was Birbal, known for his wit and wisdom. The story below is one of the examples of his wit. Do you have it in you to find out the answer?

The King of a distant land had heard that Birbal was one of the wisest men in the East and so desired to meet Birbal. He sent Birbal an invitation to visit his country.

In due course, Birbal arrived in the distant kingdom. When he entered the palace he was flabbergasted to find not one but six kings seated there. All looked alike. All were dressed in kingly robes. Who was the real king?

The very next moment he got his answer. Confidently, he approached the king and bowed to him.

How did Birbal know who was the real king?

Inspector Will attended the call from Mr. Andrews, and entered the closed display room of the magnificent Andrews' house. With a quick sweep of his eyes, Inspector Will noted that the room was round (no corners), to the left there was a waiter, next to him a little beverage table with 5 glasses filled with chopped ice and some bottles, to the center there was a little table with a small open chest (obviously something was missing), to the right there was Mrs. Rovinsky in front of a Renoir, then there was Mr. Romano in front of a Picasso, and then Mr. Lafi, in front of a Rembrandt. Beside Mr. Lafi was Mr. Andrews. No more furniture nor appliances than those were in the room. Mr. Andrews explained:
-Inspector Will, I invited my guests to show them my treasures. First, I showed them the beautiful collection of diamonds that were in the chest and are now missing. And then each one of us went to admire my paintings.
-My guests are standing right where they were at the time I discovered the disappearance.
-As you can see, we all have our backs to the diamonds' table to see the pictures. And everyone was admiring the works so attentively, that no one paid attention to the others. Then I turned back and the diamonds were gone.
Inspector Will asked about the attendant.
-I called him for some refreshment. He was serving the glasses, we all heard him chopping the ice.
-I personally searched him. He doesn't have the diamonds.
-I cannot search my guests. Nobody has left the room. And there's no place to hide the stones!
Inspector Will calmed down the poor Mr. Andrews and then solved the crime easily, because the diamonds were in plain view.
Where were they, and who was the thief?
