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. Mata Ji gave him a boon that he will become a King & Bhaara Mall will be a tenant under him. With the boon of Mata Raj Kaur, Garibu Jatt became a King & Bhaara Mall a tenant.
