Once, Akbar asked Birbal if it was possible for a man to be the lowest and the noblest at the same time. Birbal said it was possible. Akbar demanded to meet such a person.
Birbal went out and returned with a beggar. Birbal then told Akbar, 'He is the lowest among your subjects.' But Akbar wasn't convinced if he was the noblest. To which Birbal replied, 'He has been given the honour of an audience with the emperor," said Birbal. 'That makes him the noblest among beggars.' And Akbar was convinced.

There are days we all feel burdened with work, and saturated. On those days, maybe we just need to look at things differently.
