Farah was the daughter of a successful grain merchant. She lived with her parents and three siblings in a palatial bungalow. Since she was the oldest child, Farah was her fatherís favorite. She acted as her fatherís assistant and helped him in his business dealings. In return he would pamper her with books, clothes and other goodies. Everything was going wonderfully well in Farahís life. One day, however, tragedy struck.
Some invaders killed Raja Khan, the ruler of the kingdom, and took over the reins of the kingdom into their hands. The new ruler, Shehenshah, was very arrogant. He imprisoned and killed all the citizens who were loyal to Raja Khan. Farahís father was among the unfortunate ones who lost their lives. Now Farah and her family were left without a provider. She knew how to carry on her fatherís business successfully. The new king, however, had passed a decree forbidding women from working outside their homes.
If Farah obeyed the kingís orders and stayed at home, her fatherís business would be ruined, and her family would starve. If she disobeyed the king, her life would be in danger. If anything happened to her, her uneducated, illiterate mother would never be able to take care of herself or her young children. As the new head of the family, Farah had to think up of a plan to get out of this sticky situation.
Farah must keep a man in the job
Farah will decide to marry a wealthy person who is not loyal to king RajaKhan. So, all her economic problems get solved. And, there is no chance for her to disobey new king's rule too.
1) Farah should ask some work from the king in his kingdom itself. 2) She should get married with the king.
Farah should dress up as a boy and continue her father's business and earn money and feed her family. Anyway when she gets married she can handover the business to her husband and she can live happily throughout her life
Farah would get married. She would then place her husband on her fathers business and live a happy life. Thus in this way she would not disobey the king nor let anything happen to her family.
Farah made her brother in charge of business and helped him in all matters..
Then Farah thought of a solution. She decided to battle the king and take up the decision. At midnight she went to the nawab of that place and awoke him. She told the full story to him. The nawab was very kind-hearted and decided to help the poor girl. He took his soldiers and fought the new ruler and killed him. Shehenshah apologised and made Farah the new ruler.
Farah will take help
Farah could approach the king to change his order. Alternatively, she could arrange so that a male be in the front in her business under efficient management of Farah.
Farah could gather all the people of the kingdom and discuss about the king's arrogant behaviour and could protest against him. This way the king would give up his arrogant behaviour and let everybody carry on their own work.
Farah should marry the king then tell the soldiers to kill the king and lie that he drank and he tried to kiss her.
Farah disobeyed the Shehenshah's rules.
Farah should marry the king and slowly kill him
