> unparalleled during the reign of Emperor Akbar.
> But Akbar’s brother in 
> law was extremely jealous of him. He asked the
> Emperor to dispense 
> with Birbal’s services and appoint him in his
> place. He gave ample 
> assurance that he would prove to be more efficient
> and capable than 
> Birbal. Before Akbar could take a decision on this
> matter, this news 
> reached Birbal.


> Birbal
> resigned and left. 
> Akbar’s brother in law was made the minister in
> place of Birbal. Akbar 
> decided to test the new minister. He gave three
> hundred gold coins to 
> him and said, “Spend these gold coins such that,
> I get a hundred gold 
> coins here in this life; a hundred gold coins in
> the other world and 
> another hundred gold coins neither here nor 
> there.”


> The
> minister found the entire 
> situation to be a maze of confusion and
> hopelessness. He spent 
> sleepless nights worrying over how he would get
> himself out of this 
> mess. Thinking in circles was making him go crazy.
> Eventually, on the 
> advice of his wife he sought Birbal’s help.
> Birbal said, “Just give me 
> the gold cons. I shall handle the
> rest.”


> Birbal
> walked the streets of the 
> city holding the bag of gold coins in his hand. He
> noticed a rich 
> merchant celebrating his son’s wedding. Birbal
> gave a hundred gold 
> coins to him and bowed courteously saying, “The
> Emperor Akbar sends 
> you his good wishes and blessings for the wedding
> of your son. Please 
> accept the gift he has sent.” The merchant felt
> honoured that the king 
> had sent a special messenger with such a precious
> gift. He honoured 
> Birbal and gave him a large number of expensive
> gifts and a bag of 
> gold coins as a return gift for the
> king.


> Next,
> Birbal went to the area of 
> the city were the poor people lived. There he
> bought food and clothing 
> in exchange for a hundred gold coins and
> distributed them in the name 
> of the Emperor.


> When he
> came back to town he 
> organized a concert of music and dance. He spent a
> hundred gold coins 
> on it.
> The next day Birbal entered Akbar’s darbar and announced 
> that he had done all that the king had asked his
> brother-in-law to do. 
> The Emperor waited to know how he had done it.
> Birbal repeated the 
> sequences of all the events and then said, “The
> money I gave to the 
> merchant for the wedding of his son – you have
> got back while on this 
> earth. The money I spent on buying food and
> clothing for the poor – 
> you will get it in the other world. The
> m
> This is
> true even today. 


> oney I spent on the musical
> concert – you will get neither here nor
> there.”

> The
> money you spend on friends 
> is returned or reciprocated in some form or the
> other. 




> Money
> spent on charity gets 
> converted into blessings from God which becomes
> your eternal property. 

> Money
> spent on pleasures is just 
> frittered away! 



> So when you spend money, 
> think a little, if not a 
> lot!
