Musik für einen Stier

King Akbar loved music and he always wanted to hear the best musicians play at his court. One day he decided to have a music competition.

Many musicians from all over the land came and played many different instruments. King Akbar did not know how to award the prize. So he asked Birbal to choose.


König Akbar liebte Musik und er wollte immer die besten Musiker an seinem Gericht ​​spielen hören. Eines Tages entschied er sich für einen Musikwettbewerb.

Viele Musiker aus dem ganzen Land kamen und spielten viele verschiedene Instrumente. König Akbar wusste nicht, wie er den Preis vergeben sollte. Also bat er Birbal zu wählen.


Birbal did not have much knowledge about music and choose a musician whom he liked. The other musicians laughed at Birbal and said that he did not know anything about music.

Birbal smiled and said, “Let us have a competition. We can all impress the King since he loves Music. Let us see who can impress a bull.”


Birbal hatte nicht viel Wissen über Musik und wählte einen Musiker, den er mochte. Die anderen Musiker lachten über Birbal und sagten, dass er nichts über Musik wisse.

Birbal lächelte und sagte: „Lassen Sie uns einen Wettbewerb veranstalten. Wir alle können den König beeindrucken, da er Musik liebt. Mal sehen, wer einen Stier beeindrucken kann.“

The musicians agreed and a bull was brought into court. Every musician played heavenly music but the bull did not move or care.

Then Birbal said, “I am not a musician but I will try now.”


Die Musiker stimmten zu und ein Bulle wurde vor Gericht gebracht. Jeder Musiker spielte himmlische Musik, aber der Stier bewegte sich nicht und kümmerte sich nicht darum.

Dann sagte Birbal: „Ich bin kein Musiker, aber ich werde es jetzt versuchen.”


Birbal climbed onto the stage and made a music similar to mosquitoes and mooing of cows.

The bull became very active and started to moo as well.

King Akbar said, “I declare Birbal to be the winner!”


Birbal kletterte auf die Bühne und machte eine Musik ähnlich wie Mücken und Kühen.

Der Bulle wurde sehr aktiv und fing auch an zu muhen.

König Akbar sagte: „Ich erkläre Birbal zum Gewinner!”
