{SamsoNgroup} Birbal's Choice!!

Thanks to Devadas for the post

Birbal's Choice!!


One day Emperor Akbar asked Birbal what he would choose if he were given a choice between justice and a gold coin. 
"The gold coin," said Birbal.
Akbar was taken aback.
"You would prefer a gold coin to justice?" he asked, incredulously.
"Yes," said Birbal.
The other courtiers were amazed by Birbal's display of idiocy.
For years they had been trying to discredit Birbal in the emperor's eyes but without success and now the man had gone and done it himself! 
They could not believe their good fortune.
"I would have been dismayed if even the lowliest of my servants had said this," continued the emperor. "But coming from you it's. . . it's shocking - and sad. I did not know you were so debased!" 
"One asks for what one does not have, You're Majesty!" said Birbal, quietly. "You have seen to it that in our country justice is available to everybody. So as justice is already available to me and as I'm always short of money I said I would choose the gold coin."
The emperor was so pleased with Birbal's reply that he gave him not one but a thousand gold coins.

J J what we choose , in a way, tells us what we WANT from life!! … Observing our choices we can get to know what exactly we crave for!!

"Believe in your dreams and they may come true; believe in yourself and they will come true."

Face it... Fight it
