"Tune in, O King! I am Vidyawati, the seventeenth doll of King Vikramaditya's royal position. I need you to tune in to this story, that demonstrates how liberal, brave and austere was our King Vikramaditya. At that point choose whether you are deserving of sitting on this royal position or not."

Vidyawati began portraying the story.

Ruler Vikramaditya was a truly capable lord. He generally contemplated his kin and was constantly worried about them. He constantly wanted that everyone in his kingdom ought to be glad and prosperous. For this, he camouflaged himself as a common man and meandered in the city of Ujjain to know the state of his subjects.

One night, Vikramaditya camouflaged himself and was proceeding onward the boulevards, when all of a sudden he heard the calls of a lady. He ended up on edge and chose to discover. Vikramaditya achieved the house from where the cries were radiating.

It was the place of a Brahmin. The spouse of Brahmin was crying and saying. "You ought to have conversed with our lord and ought to have educated him regarding the issue."

"Is it accurate to say that you are frantic? We can't put our ruler's life in risk due to our satisfaction," chastened the Brahmin.

Vikramaditya was stunned to hear the discussion of the Brahmin and his better half since he got himself the subject of the discussion.

In the interim, the discussion between the couple ceased. Ruler Vikramaditya felt eager. He hung tight for quite a while yet he heard no more voices. At long last, he couldn't bear any longer and thumped at the entryway.

The Brahmin opened the entryway. Vikramaditya uncovered his actual personality and stated, "A couple of minutes prior, I heard a discussion among you and your better half. I need to think about the issue in detail. What are you endeavoring to escape me?"


The Brahmin began trembling with dread to see King Vikramaditya at his doorstep. He welcomed him in his home and remained before him with collapsed hands.

"Try not to freeze," said the ruler, "I just need to comprehend what your better half was stating to you."

The Brahmin couldn't set out to resist the requests of the lord. With collapsed hands, he stated, "We had hitched twelve years back, however are childless. My better half kept fasts, offered petitions yet nothing demonstrated gainful. At some point, my significant other envisioned that thirty miles east from here, in a thick timberland, a few sages are directing customs around a conciliatory flame.

They were reciting the name of Lord Shiva and yielding their very own body parts in the flame. They trust that thusly, Lord Shiva will be satisfied. The Goddess, who came in my better half's fantasy, additionally said that in the event that she did likewise, at that point Lord Shiva would be satisfied with her, and afterward she could approach Him for a tyke. Be that as it may, I don't know whether her fantasy is valid. I don't wish to lose her."

"On the off chance that you are truly coming clean, at that point don't stress. I'll do it for you," guaranteed Vikramaditya and left their home.

Subsequent to strolling some separation, Vikramaditya called his betaals. They thought about the conciliatory site, so he requested them to take him there. Extremely soon, they achieved the spot and the betaals left in the wake of leaving the lord.

Like the sages, King Vikramaditya additionally began giving up his body parts in the flame. At the point when every one of the sages alongside Vikramaditya were decreased to fiery remains, Lord Shiva showed up with His supporters and sprinkled a few drops of nectar over the slag. The sages returned to life. The drops did not fall on the cinders of King Vikramaditya. So he didn't restore.

At the point when the sages came to think about that, they felt extremely sad for Vikramaditya. In this way, they petitioned Lord Shiva to restore Vikramaditya.

On their demand, Lord Shiva sprinkled a few drops of nectar on the slag of Vikramaditya, and he additionally returned to life. Satisfied with the commitment of the ruler, Lord Shiva stated, "Request an aid."

Vikramaditya answered, "Master! By your beauty and gifts, I have everything. I just need that you favor the childless couple living in my kingdom with a tyke."

Lord Shiva grinned and stated, "My gifts are dependably with you. I have never observed such a committed, liberal and incredible ruler like you. I am giving both of you lotuses. One lotus is for you and the other is for Brahmin couple. In the event that the Brahmin couple keeps this lotus in their home, they will thrive and have kids as well."

Master Shiva at that point gave over the two lotuses to Vikramaditya with his favors. With the assistance of his two betaals Vikramaditya achieved his kingdom. He went to the brahmin's home and gave one lotus to him and portrayed the whole occurrence.

The Brahmin and his better half expressed gratitude toward the lord. Before long, the brahmin's better half brought forth a sweet and delightful kid.

Subsequent to portraying the story, the doll asked King Bhoja, "Presently you know how incredible King Vikramaditya was. He as constantly prepared to forfeit his life for his subjects. In the event that you feel that you resemble him, at that point sit on this position of authority, generally return.

In the wake of reasoning for some time, King Bhoja came back to his royal residence.
