The man took out a sewing needle from his pocket and stood it on the ground. Then he went ten feet away from the needle and took out a piece of thread from his pocket. He let go of the thread in such a way that it ended up getting inside the hole of the sewing needle. The king smiled and ordered his men to give the person 100 gold coins and then punish him with 100 lashings. Why did the king react in such a manner?
