Court Marshalled!

King Akbar’s court

A well traveled poet from empire afar comes journeying into King Akbar’s court. After giving his customary salutations to the great emperor, he announces he’d like to test the famed wisdom of Akbar’s court. Ever a man for the occasion, Akbar accepts the challenge. The wager is that they have to guess the mother tongue of the poet who is fluent in all the common languages of the era – from Persian to Urdu, from Tamil to Celtic. All present in the court, from minister to jester, try their best, but are unable to match the poet’s tongue. The court ends for the day and the reputation of the illustrious nine courtiers of Akbar hangs by the proverbial thread. Enter Birbal. As the sun sets and the birds return to their warm nests, Birbal sneaks up to the poet’s window and pours a bowl of water on the sleeping man. The poet jumps up, screaming “What The F**k”.
Birbal : !?@%#&$
