Once in clinical postings in osmania one of our class mate asked me that what he has to ask the telugu speaking patient to show his tongue during clinical examination.

-I wanted a little fun.

-So I told him u have to ask the patient to show ‘Eluka’ ( for tongue).

– So next day he went to the patient and asked him to show Eluka repeatedly.

-Patient was in dilema as what to show. rat

-And all of us were laughing. His face became red.

-He was our great kiddish Nayeem
