Toshi Sabri and the Piano Joke

There is an old joke about the guy who has surgery on his hands, and when the doctor comes to see him, asks: “Doctor, will I be able to play the piano when these bandages come off?”

The doctor says he will. The patient replies, “That’s funny. I wasn’t able to play it before.”

I am reminded of that story by an article on Toshi Sabri in Mid Day. Sabri, a former contestant on Voice of India, was attacked by some unknown assailants at Andheri station recently, and the Mid Day correspondent went to see him in hospital. He reports:

[Sabri] says his voice quality has improved and his memory sharpened after the attack.

“After my stitches were removed three days ago, I was practising a song in my hospital bed and realised I could comfortably sing high notes. Earlier, I had to put in an extra effort while singing those same notes,” said Toshi.
