Once, Birbal took his 10-year old daughter with him to meet the Emperor Akbar.
Emperor Akbar greeted her cordially and arranged for sweets and toys to be presented to her.
While conversing with her, he asked her whether she knew Persian. She replied, "A little less and a little more, Sire".
Emperor Akbar, puzzled by this reply asked Birbal to explain what his daughter meant.
What did Birbal say?
