Birbal takes on a bet with Akbar that people will do anything for money. Akbar sets a task that a person should stay in biting cold water for one whole night with no clothes on for 1000 gold coins reward. A poor Brahmin takes on this challenge. Though the Brahmin wins the bet Akbar refuses to pay him citing that he has cheated. Birbal uses his wit and humor to convince Akbar of his mistake and get justice for the man.
