"A rich merchant returned back after a long business trip. Merchant: Oh god, thank you for everything. My trip was a success and I made a good profit. The merchant had five bags filled with gold coins. Merchant: I should keep this in a safe place. So he took it to the other room. Days passed. One day he called one of his servants. Merchant: I heard that a silk merchant has visited our city. Servant 1: Yes sir. He is staying near the market place. Merchant: Hmmm... you can go. Merchant: I think it would be a good idea to buy goods from the silk merchant. So let me take some amount from the safe. When the merchant opened his safe he was shocked. Merchant: Oh my god. Where is my money? It has vanished from the safe. How could this happen? The worried merchant thought for some time and he suspected that the thief was one of his servants. Merchant: What will I do now? Let me meet Birbal, who alone can help me in getting back my money. So the merchant went to Birbal’s palace. Birbal: Oh welcome merchant. Merchant: Sir, I have come here to seek help from you. Birbal: Tell me The merchant narrated what had happened. Birbal: So whom do you suspect? Merchant: One of my servants. Birbal: Ok in that case bring all your servants to the court, tomorrow. Merchant: Ok sir. Birbal called one of his servants. Birbal’s Servant: Sir. Birbal: Hahn, get me some sticks of equal length. Servant: Yes sir, I will keep it ready. The next day merchant along with his four servants reached the court. Merchant: Sir, I have come with my servants. Birbal: Can all four of you come in the front. Birbal: Now tell me. Your master suspects one of you. Tell me the truth. Who is the culprit? Servant 1: No sir, it’s not me. Servant 2: Not me All of them denied telling anything. Birbal thought for a moment and called his servant. The servant came with four sticks. Birbal: Give me the sticks. Birbal handed over the sticks to each one of them. The merchant was puzzled. Birbal: Keep this stick with you tonight. The stick of the real thief will be longer by an inch tomorrow. All of you should be present here again tomorrow with your sticks. You may go now. All the servants went to their homes and gathered again at the same place the next day. Birbal: Show me your sticks. Birbal collected the sticks. Birbal: Merchant, he is your thief. Merchant: How did you catch him? But he... he... is the one I trusted most. Birbal: Yes he is the real culprit. See for your self his stick is shorter by one inch than the other. Merchant: So... Birbal: The thief had already cut his stick short by one inch in the night fearing that his stick will be longer by one inch by the morning. So he is the real culprit. Servant 2: Forgive me my lord. I will... I will return…. Birbal: Stop your prattle. What ever it is you have to be punished? Merchant: Thank you very much sir. Birbal: At least from now take care of your belongings carefully. Merchant: I will sir. Saying so, the merchant went along with three of his servants while the culprit stood there with his face down. "
