It was a dark night and was raining heavily and there were strange noises from every where and voice of the moaning of jackals could be heard.
Although there was a bad atmosphere king Vikramaditya did not fear a bit. He climbed the tree to bring the corpse down and soon he began to walk with the corpse lying on his shoulder.
The Betaal spoke: "O King , I pity you as you are making untiring efforts without relaxing as if you wish to achieve something. Instead of enjoying a comfortable sleep in your palace you’re still coming after me”
King didn’t speak anything because any word from his mouth would keep Betaal right back on the tree.
So Betaal starts his story……….
Once upon a time there lived a king of Ujjain by name of Dharmendra, who had three queens. He loved all three of them very much, all of them were of unparalleled beauty.
One day, while the king was playing with the first queen, he ruffled her hair. The flower on her ear fell over her thigh, and made a wound and she began cried out loud. The king was surprised by her sensitivity and immediately call vaidya (doctor) and get her wound treated.
After few days, when he was with the second queen on a full moon night on the terrace of his palace, the queen suddenly felt her skin burning of the moonlight. The king again call vaidya and get her skinned treated and was again surprised at her sensitivity.
On third occasion, he was with the third queen, she collpased on the floor on hearing of the sound of a mortar grinding rice, far far away. The king immediately call vaidya and paid medical attention for her and was surprised too.
Since then he took utmost care of his three ultra sensitive queens.
But one day he thought who is the most sensitive queen from all three?
Betaal stops and asks King Vikram asks this question: Who among the three queens is the most sensitive?
Vikram replies with a lot of thought, "The third one, as she had not even been touched by the light or flower. She had only heard a noise from distance."
As soon as Vikram had finished his answer, Betaal disappeared back to the tree.
