  There was a King. The King had seven daughters. One day, the King called his eldest daughter and asked her,” On whose luck will you live and earn?”
          The eldest daughter answered, “It is your luck that I would live and earn.”
     One by one he asked the same question to his other five daughters. All answered same way that their livelihood depended on King’s luck.
At last, the King asked his youngest daughter the same question. The youngest daughter answered,” My livelihood would depend on my luck,”
The King became very angry. His body was shivering by anger. Due to anger, his eyes were coming out of eye hole.
         Immediately, he called a Dubal Khudwa (who uproots creeping grass in the garden) and married his youngest daughter with Dubal Khudwa. Dubal Khudwa used to take grass and used to sell in market for his livelihood.
      One day, the Dubal Khudwa went to market for selling the grass. There he collected small pieces of different clothes from a tailor and came to home. He asked his wife (princess) to sew those small pieces to make a bed sheet. She sewed those pieces and made a beautiful colorful sheet.
           Next day, Dubal Khudwa went to bazaar to sell the sheet. Dubal Khudwa was showing his sheet to people that the King reached there. The King liked the bed sheet. He did not recognize his son in law. He asked the price of sheet to Dubal Khudwa. Dubal Khudwa replied that he would ask the price of sheet. The king told Dubal Khudwa to ask the price of sheet and should come to his palace tomorrow.
           Next day, Dubal Khudwa reached to palace and told that his wife wanted half of the King palace and the visit of King to his house for meal in return of sheet. The King agreed and half of his palace was handed over to Dubal Khudwa.
       As per promise, the King visited to the palace of Dubal Khudwa for meal.
               The daughter cooked varieties of food. The king sat on a stool for the meal. Servants started serving the meal. The King tasted vegetable that was without salt. He tasted all thirty six vegetables and all were salt less. He took sweet pudding) Kheer0 and stud away from kitchen.
               Now, the daughter took twenty inside parts of lemon. She colored each lemon inside fruit endocarp part. Those were looking marvelous. The servants served the colored lemon fruit parts to the King. The King tasted first part and found it was too sour. He tasted seven parts and all were sour.  The King became angry and told to Dubal Khudwa,” have you called me to be insulted? You would be hanged tomorrow.”
    Now, his daughter came out behind the curtain. She saluted her father and told,” Father! You could not eat salt fewer vegetables. You also could not eat sour lemon. You married me to Dubal Khudwa but now, I am the owner of half the palace because of my luck.”
        The King understood his mistake and he awarded his half the Kingdom to his youngest daughter.
