An Arab was admitted in the Lilavati Hospital at Mumbai for a heart transplant, but prior to the surgery the doctors needed to store his blood in case the need arises. As the gentleman had a rare type of blood, it couldn’t be found locally.
So the call went out to a number of countries. Finally a malayalee in Kerala was located who had a similar type of blood. The mallu willingly donated his blood for the Arab. After the surgery, the Arab sent the mallu as appreciation for giving his blood, a new Toyota Prado, diamonds, lapiz lazuri jewellery, and a million US dollars.
Once again the Arab had to go through a corrective surgery. His doctor telephoned the mallu who was more than happy to donate his blood again. After the second surgery, the Arab sent the mallu a thank you card and a jar of Almond halwa sweets.
The mallu was shocked to see that the Arab this time did not reciprocate the mallu’s kind gesture as he had anticipated. He phoned the Arab and asked him that this time also I thought that you would give me Toyota Prado, Diamonds and Jewellery….. But you gave only a thank you card and a jar of Almond sweets.
On this the Arab replied “mone…..now I have mallu blood in my veins!”
