In the time of Haroon-Al-Rashid there lived in a country two brothers name Ali Baba and Kasim. Ali Baba was a wood cutter. He was happy with his earnings, but Kasim was different. He married a rich man's daughter. He had a never ending greed. He hated poor Ali Baba. Kasim had many servants and maid servants. Marjina was the best maid servant and Abdullah, the best servant. Abdullah had a great regard for Marjina. Possibly he also loved her, but that love was not expressed. Ali Baba's son Hussain loved Marjina but was unable to free her from the clutch of Kasim. Kasim's wife use to buy dry woods from Ali Baba's wife. One day evening while returning home from the jungle Ali baba found a cave. Forty dacoits use to keep their looted fortune in that cave. Some body amongst them shouted 'Chiching Phank' only then the door of the cave opens and similarly when some body shouts ' Chiching Phank' again the door closes. Then Ali Baba became a rich man. Sakina told this to Kasim. Kasim gathered all the information about that cave from Ali Baba in lieu of Marjina's freedom. Hussain's dream was fulfilled. But greedy Kasim was caught by the dacoits. They killed him. Ali Baba then married Sakina also. The leader of the dacoit gang came to know that Ali Baba knew the secret of the cave. They tried to find out the house of Ali Baba. But clever Marjina changed the signs of them and spoilt their plan. Then the dacoit gang was more desperate. They plan to kill Ali Baba. But at that time Marjina and Abdullah's intelligence make their effort fruit less. The 40 dacoits were killed by boiling oil and the gang leader was killed by Marjina's knife.
