Climbs out of trouble

Climbs out of trouble : A Raman Story


Tenali Raman once incurred the displeasure of the king, and the monarch ordered him to quit his dominions.

Some days later as the king was riding through a forest, he saw a man, who on seeing the king, promptly climbed up a tree.

The king stopped under the tree and looking up saw that it was Tenali Raman.

"You are still here!" he thundered. "Did l not tell you to leave my kingdom?"

"You did, Your Majesty," said Raman.

"Accordingly, I traveled all over the world, but wherever I went l learnt that l was still in your dominions. Now the only thing left for me to do is to go to Heaven, and as you can see l have already made a start in that direction."

The king laughed and forgave the jester.
