One day Akbar went hunting and had a little accident. He shot an arrow at his own foot and was injured. He asked Birbal what he thought about the accident, to which Birbal replied, “Everything happens for the good”. This time Akbar was really upset and ordered for Birbal to be put in a well. Akbar asked Birbal, “Now, what do you think?” The Birbal again replied, “Everything happens for the good”. So Birbal remained in prison.
The emperor Akbar went on a hunting trip yet again, this time without Birbal. Akbar was captured by the Tribes, who decided to offer him as a sacrifice to “Goddess Kali”. Just before chopping his head off, one of them saw the wound on the Akbar’s foot and decided to throw him back into the jungle, as per their customs they cannot offer an imperfect body to Goddess Kali as “Bali”.
Akbar realized Birbal’s words and repented for leaving him in the well and went back to get him. When Akbar explains what happened and apologizes to Birbal for his act, Birbal says “Jahapana, good that you left me, else they would have killed and offered me to kali instead of you”.
