Jodha Akbar's February 26th episode:
Jodha sees the impatience and rudeness in Akbar’s behavior with his
most trusted officers like Abul Fazal or Birbal. She requests
Birbal to be with the emperor in this odd time. Birbal fears that
situation will separate Akbar from his closest friends.
Jodha goes to see the work of fort with Shah Mansur and Akbar. A
mad man comes and says that the fort will be ruined. Akbar tells
Mansur to give a coin to the man and expel him.
The man laughs at Akbar and shows him that the side of the coin
which bears the emperor’s name, has become black. Mansur says that
it must have happened due to some chemical reaction.
Again a thunderstorm sets turmoil. The walls of the fort are
broken. Not only that, strange worms come out of the wall cracks
and spread everywhere. Jodha is scared because she has already seen
similar worms in her dream.
Akbar is stung by a worm. The doctor says that he has never
heard of such a worm and does not know how to treat the wound. He
applies a common ointment.
Soon it is reported that the whole kingdom is troubled by such
unknown worms. Birbal reports that all the new coins have become
black on the sides which bear the emperor’s name. Akbar orders to
make new coins again. Jodha becomes even more panicked. She talks
with the emperor and tells him to correct his views. But she is
just ignored once again!
