Tenali fools the thieves

Once there were some thieves in the city of Vijay nagar city. The King Krishnadev Rai sounded an alert on the thieves and asked people to be alert.That night, while going to bed Tenali saw some thieves in the bushes near his house. Smart and witty as Tenali was, Tenali mad a plan to fool the thieves. After a while , the thieves outside heard Tenali saying to his wife, "Dear be careful and lock all the doors and windows as robberies are taking place in the city. I have put all our money and jewels in this box, so help me carry it to the well behind our house. We will throw it into the well behind our house. The thieves can never get to them this way."

The thieves heard this and they saw Tenali and his wife threw a box into the well. Then both of them went into their house and closed all the doors and fell fast asleep.

The thieves were happy on hearing this. They decided to get the box out the water from the well. They started draining the water for the whole night to get the box. Early in the morning Tenali came to the well and saw the thieves drawing water. Tenali smiled at them and said ' Thank you friends, for watering my plants. Let me know how much should I pay you for the labor'.

Hearing this the thieves understood Tenali's plan and fell at his feet for forgiveness. Tenali let them go when they promised not to steal or rob anyone ever again.
