The Greedy King

2 mins 3.3K 2 mins 3.3K

Long Long ago there was a great kingdom called INDRANI. The king of INDRANI was a very greedy person. His name was Indradanush. When he became the king he changed the rule of the kingdom. He made a new rule that the common people should pay fifteen grams of gold to stay in the kingdom, and those who were not able to pay the taxes [gold] they have to shift to the nearby forest and henceforth they had no permission to enter the kingdom.

Later the king married to a princess called Keerthana; she was very pretty humble and down to earth. She belongs to a very rich and royal family and because of that the king married. The couple did not have children for many years. Later after a long time they were blessed with a baby boy. They named him Daksh. Prince Daksh was a kind and generous person and he was very much loved by his parents.

The prince turned five, he was playing in the garden with his friends, and suddenly an insect bit him and he lost his conscious. The king and the queen became worried and they tried their best to call all the doctors, but they could not cure him. One of the doctor suggested that to seek help from a vaidhya [ayurvedic doctor], called Tridarshi and only he could cure the prince.

The soldiers started searching for him all over the kingdom, but they were not able to find him. Then one of the villagers informed the king that he was put out of the kingdom, for not paying the gold.

The king went to the forest and bid forgiveness from the vaidhya and he requested him to come to the kingdom to cure the prince. The vaidhya accepted this with one condition that the king should treat the people equally and he should welcome everyone into his kingdom.

The king agreed. The vaidhya reached the palace and he gave some herbal medicine to the prince. Soon Daksh got his conscious back. The king called all the people back from the forest and treated everyone equally. Then they all lived together happily in the kingdom ever after.
