Once akbar ( a very popular king of indian history) asked birbal (akbar's minister who is considered as wisest man of that time and who has solution for all problems) 'tell me one sentence which make us sad when we are happy and also make us happy when we are sad?' Birbal answered- 'this time will pass very soon..' There are more than thousands akbar-birbal stories and its very popular in India, I dont know how many of them are real..but in this story the hidden message is really very thoughtful..time doesn't stops for anything, anyone..happiness and sorrow are two faces of life, we should be prepare for every condition..

I like Birbal,Tenali Raman and Chota Bheem.Birbal might have had read Tenali Raman stories,because tenali gave similar answer to Krishnadevaraya.Maybe its just the cartoonist mixing up these stories.All these cartoons are made by green gold.

I am a little Chola cause I am from the south.So naturally I am inclined to tenali,please excuse me.But I think tenali preceded Birbal.

Every culture has their fables, myths and such. It is important in this life to be aware and pay attention. Life is almost on the move and doesn't stand still for anyone. Change is enevidable. and something that is also always happening. Be ready for it and not sad.

It's quite interesting. Each country has its own classical stories and myths. I like it. For me, that one sentence also give us hope during times of sorrow and other bad times. We'll just think of that sentence.

Absolutely,..whenever i feel stuck i just remind myself- whatever it is , it will pass very soon and i feel really light reminding this..I love reading and i have read a lot of moral stories' books in my childhood from different countries like Russian stories, Arabian, Chinese, Japanese and many more. My father used to bring books for us, we had a very nice collection..

A very interesting story with a lot of wisdom.I would definitely agree with the idea that this time will pass soon is definitely a phrase that will make you happy when your sad and sad when your happy.At the moment I'm really happy at the moment at university living with a great group of people.And the thing that is quite sad is that we won't all be together next year.As we will all have to leave the student accomadation after our first year and move into our own houses in smaller groups.
