|A Sindhi went to a dentist for tooth extraction but first enquired about the cost. Dentist said Rs 1200, the Sindhi thought that was too much.|
After some thought, he asked about cheaper methods. The dentist said, "Yes, it can be done without anesthesia and will cost only Rs 300, but it would be very very painful."
Sindhi said, "OK Doc, let's do it without anesthesia."
The dentist removed the tooth without anesthesia. During the entire procedure, the Sindhi sat quietly, even smiling a little.
The dentist was not only surprised but was quite impressed and said, "I have never seen such a brave patient. I don't even want my fees, here take Rs 500 as a reward instead, you've taught me such a powerful lesson today about mastering one's pain!!!"
In the evening he met his fellow dentists and told everyone about this amazing Sindhi patient. One doctor jumped up and shouted, "That ×%#@ Sindhi first came to me, I gave him anesthesia and asked him to wait outside for half an hour! After half an hour when I called for him, he had left!!
|A politician gives a stump speech in an Indian reservation, trying to garner the Native American ballot.|
"If elected, I promise better education for Native Americans," he says.
The crowd goes wild, calling out: "Hoya! Hoya!"
Guy doesn't know what the word means, but he figures, hey, they look excited, so he goes on.
"I promise to propose legislation permitting a casino to be built on this reservation," he says.
The crowd gets even more frenzied, and keeps shouting "Hoya!" over and over.
Encouraged by the cheers, he finishes his speech, "And if elected, I promise to ensure better health care and employment options for Native Americans!"
The crowd is at a fever pitch, stamping their feet and yelling "Hoya! Hoya! Hoya!"
His speech finished, the guy shakes some hands, kisses some babies, and decides to go on a tour of the reservation before hitting the campaign trail again.
Guy comes across a huge herd of cattle, and says to his guide, "I was raised on a ranch, and I've always loved cattle. Mind if I go over and get a closer look?"
"Sure," says the guide, "but be careful not to step in the hoya."
|Why people from different communities run the Mumbai Marathon:|
Punjus run simply because of peer pressure from other communities plus that they can upload their pics posing on the Sealink. Otherwise they rather be sleeping.
Maharashtrians run because that day most roads are closed and BEST buses are not plying - so how else will they commute ?
Biharis & Bhaiyas run because they feel the Maharashtrians are running behind them and they run for their lives.
Catholics run because that's what they have been trained for since childhood - athletics or hockey or football.
Parsis run so hopefully they can find someone on the race track and get married that same evening.
South Indians run because of the completion certificate which they will get so that they can add this to their collection of certificates which they are collecting since childhood.
Sindhis run because the cost includes Sealink toll charges.
Gujjus run because the cost includes Sealink toll charges + Goody bag + Free Water + Free Enerzal + Free Oranges + Free Salt + Free Ice Pack+ Free whiffs of Volini Spray on the route.
Marwaris run for all of the above reasons + they think they can take an interest free loan from Std. Chartered Bank (least realising Stan Chart no longer is sponsor) for their business just because they ran !
And Bengalis don't run. They are busy analysing why others are running!
|A Gujju bought a well from a Jew.|
The next day while on his way to market he met the Jew who told him, "Brother I have sold the well to you but I have not sold the water,if you use the water you will have to pay for it."
The Gujju replied, "In fact I was planning to come to your place and ask you to empty the water and if you don't do it than you will have to pay the rent for the water."
