A rich Arab Sheikh was admitted at a hospital in USA for a major surgery but prior to the surgery the doctors asked to store his blood in case the need arose.
As the gentleman had a rare type of blood, it couldn’t be found easily.
So the call went out to a number of countries.
Finally a Ceylonese named Singam was located who had a similar type of blood.
Singam willingly donated his blood for the Sheikh.
After the surgery, as appreciation for giving his blood the Sheikh sent Singam a new BMW, Gold, Diamonds, Lapiz Lazuli Jewellery, and a million Dirhams.
A few weeks later the Sheikh again had to go through a corrective surgery. His doctor telephoned Singam, who was more than happy to donate his blood again.
After the second surgery, the Sheikh sent Singam a thank you card . Singam was shocked to see that the Sheikh this time did not reciprocate his kind gesture as he had anticipated. He phoned the Sheikh and said ‘This time also I thought that you would give me car, jewelry and other expensive gifts, but you gave only a thank you card.
To this the Sheikh replied:
“Appu…. now I have Ceylonese blood in my veins!! What do you expect?_”
