Once upon a time, the Mughal emperor Akbar was sitting in the court of Fatehpur Sikri. One of his courtiers praised the poet Kumbandas of Astachep in his court. The emperor asked one of his courtiers to send the message to the poet to appear in his court at the same moment. The poet Kumbandas was a person of high principles & did not have any interest in wealth, the illusion (i.e., the phenomenal world) & he wasn’t willing to show-off his works to the people around. The poet was very far from the worldly issues. But he thought that while living in a sea he should not fight with the King of the sea, Crocodile. Although he was not interested he had to go & visit the emperor’s court at Fatehpur Sikri. However the emperor Akbar praised him & showered him with lot of respect. The emperor heard some of his poetry & was very happy with it. So the emperor granted the poet a wish. The poet Kumbandas made a humble wish & requested the emperor “Oh, Emperor Akbar please promise me, that in the near future I wouldn’t like to be called to your court again”. The emperor too accepted his wish. The emperor sent the poet by showing lots of gratitude & respect towards him.
