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.

Birbal replied “Your Majesty, the other Kings were watching you closely and trying to imitate you but you on the other hand, were sitting calm, cool and relaxed. So I guessed you were the Real King. A commoner will always look up to his king for support”.

The King was surprised at the wit and common sense of Birbal. He praised Birbal in his court and showered him with rich gifts and jewels. Birbal came back to the court of Akbar and reported his great experience. Birbal had once again made Akbar proud.

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?
