As Vikram carried Betal on his back, he narrated another
story. Two very talented brothers, Som and Mangal, lived in the kingdom of
Jaisingh. The first one had very powerful eyesight and the second one had
a strong sense of smell. King Jaisingh made them his guards.
One day, the neighbouring king invited Jaisingh to his kingdom. Jaisingh, saw that there was a risk to his
life, so he took the two brothers with him. After a grand dinner, Jaisingh
was taken to his bedroom. As he was about to go to sleep, Som spotted a
thorn on his bed. When Mangal smelled the thorn he said that it was
poisonous and if Jaisingh had slept on it, he would have died. Betal
asked Vikram, "Which brother was more talented?" Vikram
answered, "Som was more talented because his talent saved the king's
life." Betal said "This is the right answer." He flew away
because Vikram had spoken.
