Change of Perspective

I called up my brother today, wanting to discuss a transfer of funds to some account. I was expecting it to be a pretty regular call as calls between brothers could go. The call went something like this:

Tring, Tring

Bro: Jaldi bolo. (Be quick)
Me: Kyun ? (Why?) [Normal human tendency to delay proceedings when you are asked to speed them up.]
Bro: Abhi hum ICU mein hain. (Am in the Intensive Care Unit)
Me: Wahan kya kar raha hai? (What are you doing there?)
Bro: I got my duty posting here.
Me: Ok. We can talk later.
Bro: Nahi. Tum bolo... (It's Ok. You can speak)

Did I tell you my brother has completed his studies as a medical undergraduate student and is currently undergoing his one year long internship.
