Humayan's son, Akbar, became the greatest of all Moghul emperors. In his court there were many Hindus with high posts, and he even married a Hindu princess. It was he who made the Hindus and the Muslims one. He ruled his kingdom with compassion and truth.

One day Akbar said to his minister, "Birbal, for a long time I have been thinking of one question. I am sure you will be able to answer it. We see everything clearly in the sunlight, but is there anything that cannot be seen even with the help of sunlight?"

"Yes, your Majesty, there is something that cannot be seen in the sunlight. Even the sunlight fails to illumine it."

"What is it, Birbal?"

"Your Majesty, it is the darkness of the mind."
