Within few minutes, Saint was in front of King.
King apologized Saint, for the way he was bought up by his servants. Saint readily forgave him and asked, “What haste happened? What made you so eager that i had to be pulled up with ropes?”
King replied, “After seeing you, suddenly i became so restless to get an answer to a question and knew only you would be able to answer that question and because of that you had to go through this trouble.”
