Gopal was a clever tailor. He was very good at his work. He always did his work with care. One day while he was stitching cloths at night, lot of mosquitoes entered his room. Since Gopal had to stitch the clothes before morning, he went on beating that part of the body where the mosquitoes sat. At a particular time lot of mosquitoes were sitting on his body and with one hit over them he killed ten of them. Suddenly Gopal decided that he was a great hero. He stitched a cap for himself, over which was written, “Hero who killed ten at a stroke.” He decided that he should not be tailor any more and decided to out in the world to earn lot of money. While going he searched his entire house to find something which he could take with him. He only found one Vada. He put it in his bag. When he came outside his house he could catch hold of a sparrow which was sitting on the window. He put the sparrow also in the bag. He walked a long distance and reached the house of a big Pahalwan (wrestler). That Pahalwan read what is written on his cap and asked him, “Did you really kill, ten at one stroke. I would like to test you.” Gopal then replied, “Of course I have killed ten at a stroke. You can test me”.
The king was wonder stuck. He told Gopal, “ We have two rakshasas in the forest who are always troubling us. Daily they come and kill and eat some of our people. If you can kill them, I will give half my kingdom and also my daughter in marriage to you.” Gopal agreed. He again said that he would go alone in to the forest. That night he took lot of small stones and went and hid on the tree below, which the Rakshasas were sleeping. The Rakshasa came at night and slept below the tree. Gopal took one stone and threw at one Rakshasa who woke up. He shouted at the other Rakshasa, “Why did you throw a stone at me/”. The other Rakshasa replied, “I did not”. Both of them slept again. Gopal threw one more stone. This time there was a big quarrel among the Rakshasa and both of them fought with each other and died. Gopal returned back as a hero.
But the princess was not convinced. She said, I would also keep a test. There is a wild giant pig in the forest. Let Gopal kill it. Then only I will marry him. Gopal readily agreed. He went in to the forest again alone. When the wild pig started chasing him, he ran straight and took a small turn near a big tree and hid behind it. The pig, which was chasing him, dashed against the big tree and was killed.
So the princess married him and Gopal became a king. But one day, while he was sleeping he muttered, “Where is the needle? I want to stitch a shirt.” The princess heard this and told her father. Then both of them decided that Gopal was a tailor. They asked some of the goondas of their kingdom to come at night and kill Gopal. But one of the Goonda was a friend of Gopal. So he told him about the plot. That night also Gopal muttered loud in his sleep, ”Where is the needle? I want to stitch the shirt, which was torn while killing ten people at one stroke.” When the goondas heard this, they ran away. Then Gopal lived happily in the city and became a king to the city.
