A Bengali, a Punjabi, a Gujarati and a Keralite were reluctant to take the Covid vaccine. The doctor called them in one by one.
He told the Bengali, “you must take your vaccine.” The Bengali said “no“. The doctor said “every man of culture and civilisation takes the vaccine.” The Bengali took his vaccine.
Then the Punjabi came in. The doctor said “here is your vaccine. “ The Punjabi said no. The doctor said, “your neighbours have all taken the vaccine “. So the Punjabi took the vaccine.
Then the Gujarati came in. The doctor said “take your vaccine.”The Gujarati said “no”. And the doctor said: “it’s an order from Prime Minister Modi.” The Gujarati took his vaccine.
Finally the Keralite came in. The doctor said “take your vaccine.”The Keralite said “no.” The doctor said “any man of culture and civilisation will take the vaccine.” The Keralite said “go away, no.” The doctor then said “all your neighbours have taken it.”The Keralite replied, “I don’t care.” The doctor, now desperate, said “it’s an order from Prime Minister Modi”. The Keralite replied “Po Mone Modi.”
Finally the doctor asked, “who are you?” The Keralite said, “I am from Kerala.” The doctor said, “oh then you are not entitled to have the vaccine.” The Keralite said “what? Who are you to tell me that I cannot have a vaccine? How dare you deny me my rights! Give me the vaccine or I will conduct a protest outside your clinic!”
The doctor gave in. The Keralite took his vaccine….
