"But Baba, without a screen it is not possible to measure accurately. There is no way of knowing whether the needle is in the right position."
"I have been hearing," Baba gestured "that you are the top neurosurgeon in the country, and you can't do the measurements properly without a screen?"
"It has to be exact, Baba. You don't want to deaden the wrong nerve."
"But surely, with your experience, you would be able to make the measurements."
You see how the conversation turned. Baba started playing on Dr. Ginde's pride. Buttering him up, as it were, emphasizing how skillful he was reputed to be. And though Baba was supposed to be the patient, see how He is the one who leads the doctor in the conversation? Baba conducts it all.
THAT'S HOW IT WAS, p. 45
