Why did he develop the tax and what was the reaction of Dewan?

Dear Student,

The king had successfully killed ninety-nine tigers but had to struggle hard to find the hundredth tiger. Once, there came the news of a tiger being spotted near a hillside village but it turned out to be untrue. This infuriated the king and in anger he ordered the dewan to double the land tax. He did this to punish the villagers for the false news.

The dewan was unhappy with the king's decision. He told the king that people would be disappointed. However, he was not able to change the king's decision. He went home convinced that if the king did not find the tiger soon, the results could be catastrophic.
