The Never Ending Story Summary in English

Akbar and Birbal images
Akbar and Birbal stories are very familiar and popular. These stories are very interesting. Here the title of the story is very catchy. In this story once Emperor Akbar felt ill. Though it was not serious, the emperor could not sleep. For that hakim suggested that the emperor should hear a story, before retiring to bed. Each one of the courtiers would tell a story to the emperor.

But the emperor would not sleep and the courtiers should continue the story. It was really a problem for ministers and courtiers, so they consulted Birbal. Birbal agreed to tell a story to the emperor. Birbal narrated a story, then the emperor asked what happened then. As the stories continued the emperor asked the usual question ‘What’s next?’ But clever Birbal made a plan and started the Story.

In that story, 500 birds were there. He told one bird went into the hut and holding a grain flew out. After the second, third, fourth bird the story goes on like that when the emperor asked how many are birds left, Birbal told only five birds have flown out. The remaining four hundred and ninety-five birds to go! Birbal continued like this, the emperor got bored. Them emperor asked Birbal when are these birds going to finish their task. For that Birbal replied when you stop saying what’s next? Sarkar. The emperor realished his foolishness and stopped this programme.


Michael Ende’s masterpiece underscores that stories, once begun, never truly end – they continue to live on in the hearts and minds of those who dare to dream and believe, forever inspiring the exploration of new horizons and the preservation of the enchantment within our own lives.
