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 incase 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 Gujarati was located who had a similar type of blood. The
Gujarati willingly donated his blood for the Arab. After the surgery, the
Arabsent the Gujarati as appreciation for giving his blood, a new Toyota
Prado, diamonds, lapiz lazuri jewellery, and a million US dollars.
Once againthe Arab had to go through a corrective surgery. His doctor
telephoned the Gujarati who was more than happy to donate his blood
again.After the second surgery,the Arab sent the Gujrati a thank you card
and a jar of Almond halwa sweets.
The Gujrati was shocked to see that the Arab had not reciprocated to
his kind gesture the way he had anticipated. He phoned the Arab and told
him that this time also he had expected the Arab to send him a toyata prado,
diamonds and jewellery.....but you only gave me a thank you card and a jar
of almond sweets?....
On this the Arab replied...
"Bapu now I have gujju blood in my veins...!"
