Long time back their lived a sovereign named Hashavardhan who was the king of Jodpur. He is very self-seeking king indeed he unruffled tax in very hefty amounts and he took no leniency for the farmers when they were neither floods nor people suffered for starvation. He is very greedy in the aspect of treasures. Even though he had thousands of diamonds and lakh’s of bullion, he never spends money for the citizens for their well-being due to the covetousness. Due to his treasures he had many enemies.
The enemies we jealous of his riches and made many battles on the king but the enemies never succeeded in the battle. This is due to the reason that minister of the king was wise and he always planned the strategy. This minister planned good plan in the battle field which made the king always triumph in the battle. So the enemies planed their target this time on the pathetic of the king.
They offered bullion’s to one of the scout (one who informs the news to the king from different parts of country) of the kingdom and told the messenger to tell to the king that he saw a snake in the forest of their empire which had diamond on his head and this diamond was very rare and very much costly. The soldier was also told to tell that they are trying to capture the diamond on the snake. The soldier added it was the property of the king as it is present in his kingdom. It is richest and costliest diamond in the country in India. As said by the enemies the messenger told the message to the king. Listening to the news of the diamond the king decided to have the diamond for himself. So he declared to the minister to send few soldiers to go to the forest and kill the snake and demanded the diamond. But the minister accessible suggestion to the king “My lord we are even prosperous now what would happen if that diamond is presented at hand or not” but the king due to his greediness made the army to stride. The minister sends 25 soldiers. Anon the king got the news that the soldiers did not return. As to this the king Himself marched even before marching the minister advice not to go as because put forward the statement that one snake can’t kill 25 soldiers there is something wrong.
The king this time even did not bother about the words of minster. Later when the king reached the forest the king was shot to death in the forest by the enemies with arrows.
