A UAE Malayali went to a dentist for tooth extraction and first enquired about cost. Dentist said 1200dirhams , the Malayali thought it 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 300dirhams, but it would be very very painful.
Malayali said OK Dr, do it without anesthesia.
The dentist removed the tooth without anesthesia and during the entire procedure the Malayali 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 like you. I don’t even want my fees, instead, take this 500 as a reward, you’ve taught me such a powerful lesson today about mastering one’s pain and feelings !!!
In the evening he met his fellow dentists and told everyone about his amazing Malayali patient.
Out of all doctors, one doctor jumped up and shouted 😤 that Malayali 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 him he had left !!!!
