Tenali Raman and the Horse Here’s another great story about Tenali Raman. Once, King Krishna Deva Raya wanted to expand
his army. So, he needed more horses. He decided to give one horse to each person
in his kingdom, to take care of. He also gave everyone a good supply of straw
to feed the horses. Everyone except Tenali Rama was happy with
this plan. He shut his horse in one room and every day at exactly nine o’clock he gave the horse very little straw through the window. He gave the rest of the straw to his cows
who became fat and healthy. At the end of a year, the king wanted to see
all the horses to find out which was the strongest of them all. All the people who had been given horses to
grow up, brought their horses for inspection. But Tenali Rama did not bring his horse. On being questioned, he answered that his
horse had become so strong that he could not bring it to the court. The king was surprised on hearing this. He said, “Alright, I will send my chief
inspector to your house tomorrow morning at nine to inspect the horse there.” Tenali agreed. The next morning, the chief inspector went
to Tenali’s house. He had a long beard. Tenali took him to the room where the horse
was kept and asked him to look through the window. When the inspector peeped through the window,
naturally his beard went in through the window first. Seeing the beard, the horse thought that it
must be straw that was being given to him at the fixed time. It caught hold of the beard in his teeth and
pulled. The inspector shouted in pain and tried to
pull his beard back. But the horse knew that this was the only
food he would get all day and pulled with all his might till the inspector lost his
beard. The inspector went running to the king. He reported that indeed Tenali Rama’s horse
was the strongest of them all.
