Akbar then decided to tell the court how wise Birbal was. There was a marriage procession going on. The Emperor ordered the ministers to find out whose marriage it was. The minister found out the name and returned with extreme pride. But when Birbal went there, he asked all the details about marriage, both bride and groom family, where they were headed, what the bride and groom do in life, if they are educated, how the wedding was arranged and what the couple's future plans were. He came back and explained the full details to the emperor.
Akbar had proved his point. It's necessary to understand the difference between doing a shoddy job and doing a good job. Because sometimes it's not enough to meet deadlines. It's equally important to use your intelligence to make that work stand out.
