Rajappan and Sheikh

Rajappan and Sheikh
A Sheikh was admitted at the Lilavati Hospital in 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 named Rajappan Trichur , Kerala was located who had a similar type of blood. Rajappan willingly donated his blood for the Sheikh. After the surgery, the Sheikh sent Rajappan as appreciation for giving his blood, a new Toyota Prado, diamonds, lapiz lazuri jewellery, and a Million Dinars.

Once again the Sheikh had to go through a corrective surgery. His doctor telephoned Rajappan who was more than happy to donate his blood again.

After the second surgery, the Sheikh sent Rajappan a thank you card and a jar of Almond halwa sweets.

Rajappan was shocked to see that the Sheikh this time did not
reciprocate Rajappan's kind gesture as he had anticipated.


He phoned the Sheikh and said "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.

At this the Sheikh replied:

" Mone Rajappa...now I have a malayalee's blood in my veins!"
