Akbar then asked to call Birbal. When Birbal came, Badshah told him to go ask those people just Who they are? Birbal went there came with a gift in hand for Badshah, he said "your Majesty, they are sellers from Afganisthan selling dates, they are going to Lakhanow, and when I told them that HIS Majesty was asking about them They gave me a Gift for HIS MAJESTY, this is the Gift”.
