Noble Beggar

Birbal Stories: Noble Beggar

Emperor Akbar asked Birbal if it was possible for a man to be the lowest and the noblest t the same time.

"It is possible," said Birbal.

"Then bring me such a person," said the emperor.

Birbal went out and returned with a beggar.

"He is the lowest among your subjects," he said, presenting him to Akbar.

"That might be true," said Akbar. "But I don't see how he can be the noblest."

"He has been given the honor of an audience with the emperor," said Birbal. "That makes him the noblest among beggars."
