Emperor Akbar once ruled over India. He was a wise and intelligent ruler, and he had in his court the Nine Gems, his nine advisors, who were each known for a particular skill. One of these Gems was Birbal, known for his wit and wisdom. The story below is one of the examples of his wit. Do you have it in you to find out the answer?


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?


Answer

Birbal said, "Sire, she means that she knows Persian a little less than people who know Persian well, but a little more than people who do not know Persian at all!"

The Emperor was pleased with Birbal's daughter's wit and rewarded her with some more gifts. After all, she was a chip off the old block!
