MIDWEEK MASALA: The Sardar’s unseen hand

After several weeks in a cast, the Sardar walks into the doctor’s clinic. The patient has had a major surgery on both his hands after a fall.

“Doctor, doctor,” says the Sardar excitedly holding up his hands. “Will I be able to play the piano when you remove the bandages?”

“Yes, of course,” says the doctor in that reassuring sort of way.

“That’s funny,” says the Sardar. “I never could do it before my accident.”
