Long, long time ago, there was a king in a fruitful land. He decided to collect taxes from his people. At the same time a representative from one of his cities approached him and asked him to make a deal. King asked what kind of deal? He replied, “That he will ask few questions from his ministers. If his ministers were smarter than the people and answer the question correctly; the people would pay the taxes. On the other hand, if the answers were wrong, the people would not pay the taxes.” The king accepts the deal.
The majesty told the representative, “Give us forty days so the ministers would find the answers.” Forty days passed and the minister couldn’t find the answers.
Therefore, the ministers escaped the castle because they were afraid of king’s punishment.
After few days, they arrived in a green land. There, they met a man. After talking to him for few minutes, they asked his name. He said, “My name is Half Man Horn.” “They thought what a strange name!” One of the ministers asked him how you got such a name. He replied,” My name was Mansoor. I took the man out of my name Man-soor and called myself half man because I am very humble and down to earth. Then I took the last part of Man-soor ; soorwhich means trumpet and put horn instead. Finally, I put half man and horn together and as result, my name became Half Man Horn.”
The ministers talked among themselves and decided that he is a very knowledgeable man. The final decision was that they take the man to palace to answer the question from the representative.
After the ministers and the man arrived to the palace, they called the envoy to come and ask his questions. The challenge started in palace.
The representative draws a circle on the ground. Then, he asks the Half Man Horn, “Where is the center of earth?” The Half Man Horn says, “Right here.” Then the representative draws another circle on the ground. At that moment the half Man Horn draws a line in the circle. The representative puts an egg in the circle. The man puts an onion across from it.
The envoy gets up and says to the king, “Your people are cleverer than ours therefore, we pay the taxes.” The King asks the envoy, “What were the questions and answers?” He stated to the king, “I asked where the center of the earth is. He pointed to where he was standing. That is correct because the earth is round and anywhere on earth is the center. I drew a circle on the ground which meant that all the earth is only soil. He drew line in the circle which meant that only part of the earth is soil. Then I put an egg in the circle that meant the earth has only one layer. The man puts an onion across from it. The implication is that the earth has many layers.”
The king called in the Half Man Horn and congratulated him. He also gave him many gifts. At the same time, the king asked Half Man Horn, “What were the questions and answers?” He stated to the king, “He asked me where the center of earth is? I knew that he can’t measure the earth. So I said right here. He drew a circle, which meant my daily food is whole bread. I drew a line in the circle to show him that I only need a piece of bread to overcome my daily hunger. At last, he asks, “Do you eat egg with your bread?” I replied, “I only eat my bread with onion.”
