One day Akbar went for hunting in the jungle, and there suddenly his ring fell in a dry well. Now problem was that how to take that ring out. They did not have any means to take it out. Then Birbal said, "Huzoor, if you give me some time I can take your ring out of this well". Birbal went around and brought some fresh cow dung and threw it on the ring. He then tied a stone on one end of a string, and holding the other end in his hand threw the stone on the cow dung. Then he waited for a long time, cow dung to be dried, and then pulled the string out of the well. The string brought the stone, the stone was stuck into cow dung and the cow dung had the Akbar's ring at its bottom. Akbar was very pleased with his wisdom and gave him many gifts.
