One day, a man met Birbal in the street.
He began telling Birbal his sob story.
The man said, “I’ve walked twenty kilometres just to see you. All along my way people said that you were the country’s most generous man.”
Birbal thought to himself, “This man is going to ask me for money.”
Birbal asked him, “Are you returning the same way?”
The man replied, “Yes.”
Birbal said, “Will you do something for me?”
The man said,”Of course. What do you want?”
Birbal said as he walked away, “Please deny the rumour of my generosity.”
