Once upon a time..a small boy named Basheer lived in a tiny Moroccan village. All his classmates hated him for his stupidity especially his teacher who was always yelling at him “you are driving me crazy Basheer”…
One day his mother went to check out how he is doing at school and the teacher told her honestly that her son is simply a disaster( n آفت tabhai), getting very low marks and never had she seen such a dumb(kamaqal ya/ bezaban) boy in her whole career…(peshah/ kam)
The mother could not accept such a feed back (radoamal)and she took her son out from that school. she even shifted to another city …
25 years later, that teacher got a cardio disorder and all the doctors have advised her to go for an open heart operation which only one surgeon could perform..
Left with no other choice she did it and the surgery was successful …when she opened her eyes, she saw a handsome doctor smiling to her, being under anesthesia effect, she wanted to thank him but could not talk, in turn, he was staring at her face which started turning blue, she was raising her hand trying to tell him some thing but in vain and eventually died…
The doctor was shocked and was trying to understand what just happened, till he turned back and saw our friend Basheer working as a cleaner in that hospital who unplugged the ventilator to connect his vacuum cleaner……
If you were thinking that Basheer became a doctor, its because you have been watching too many Indian movies, serials or have read too many motivational forward messages…
