Following Kanjibhai’s physical examination,..
Dr. Jayesh Shah sent his patient a bill.
A month went by without a remittance,..
so the office sent a reminder letter, then another bill, and then another reminder letter,..
and then another, but no payment came.
Finally the Doctor sent Kanjibhai a pathetic letter,..
claiming desperately strained circumstances and enclosing a snapshot of his infant daughter.
On the back of the snapshot he wrote,..
“The reason I desperately need the money you owe me!”
Barely a week later, a response from Kanjibhai arrived in the mail.
Dr. Jayesh Shah ripped it open eagerly,..
and found himself holding a picture of a woman in a full length heavily embroidered saree.
On the back of the photograph the Kanjibhai had scrawled, “The reason I can’t pay!”
