Bhaara Mall did not pay any attention to this. Then MATA JI sent her follower to Garibu Jatt. Garibu Jatt cut a the trunk of a Ber tree & placed it underneath the beam overnight. MATA JI got pleased with his service & asked him for his wish. Garibu requested with folded hands that his generations to come should not become a subject of the King but they should become Kings.
