One day, Akbar and Birbal were walking in a garden. Many crows
were flying in the sky around them. Akbar was
curious to know how many crows there were.
He announced a prize for anyone who could find this out.
People were wondering how to count crows which kept
flying from one place to another. Akbar asked Birbal if he
could figure this out.
After thinking for a day, Birbal said “There are exactly Nine
Hundred and Sixty Three crows in our city”.
Akbar was surprised and
asked Birbal, “How can you be
so sure”?
“You can get them counted,”
said Birbal.
“What if there are less?” asked Akbar.
“The other crows would have gone on a
holiday,” said Birbal.
“What if there are more?” asked Akbar.
“Crows from other places would be visiting
the city,” said Birbal.
Akbar was happy with Birbal’s reply
and gave him the reward.
