The Farmer’s Well Dispute
A farmer and his neighbor once went to Emperor Akbar’s court with a complaint. “Your Majesty, I bought a well from him,” said the farmer pointing to his neighbor, “and now he wants me to pay for the water.” “That’s right, your Majesty,” said the neighbor. “I sold him the well but not the water!” The Emperor asked Birbal to settle the dispute.
Birbal can say to farmer’s neighbor, that you are storing your water in his well, please pay storage fee or take out all of your water from the well.
