    Faith Moveth Mountains

    Hot 6 years ago

    A COUNTRY bumpkin was suffering from an indigestion problem, and some of his friends in the village recommended that he see the village doctor who enjoyed a good reputation. Soon the bumpkin entered the doctor's room and told him of his bouts of indigestion. The doctor, seeing his poor financial condition, wrote out a carminative prescription and asked him to hand it to the compounder in the adjoining room. In a little while the mixture was ready, and the compounder had put six marks on a strip of paper and pasted it on the bottle. He told the patient to take one mark after a major meal. The villager went home, and after taking his noon meal, peeled off one mark and ate it. Likewise he took all the marks and went to the doctor to get some more of the mixture. The doctor laughed and contemplated how faith moves a mountain!

    A HARYANVI peasant being taken ill came to Delhi and was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences. Internee medical students came round in turns to examine him.

    Being Bengalis, Tamils and Punjabis none of them could understand what the ailing Haryanvi was saying to them in his dialect.

    Ultimately a Haryanvi lad working as a compounder in the hospital pharmacy came in, and asked, "Taoo, tainey kay hogaya (Uncle what's gone wrong with you)?"

    The peasant beamed: "Rey chhoray, daktar to too sey, bakee to sab kampoder laagain sey (O boy, you must be the real doctor, those others appear to be compounders)."
