One woman said, Oh king! I am the mother of the baby.
The other woman said, Oh king! please don’t believe her. She is not the mother of the baby. I am the real mother of the child.
King Solomon also became confused. First, the king said to breastfeed the baby, but the newborn baby drank from both the woman, now the decision became more difficult. After a deep thought, the king said, Cut the baby into two pieces and give one part to each woman. After hearing all one woman remained silent.

The king gave the child to the crying woman and said only a mother can not remain silent when a question arrived in her chields life.
