The person who has benefitted the most by the birth of his holiness Ashwin T Sundar has been the dentist.Right from my birth I was told that the gums on my upper jaw where a bit 2 low & my teeth wud jar out like a rhino's horn.Well to add 2 all this I fell down a couple of times directly on my face(like those in chaplin's films) & broke couple of my front tooth.And there I was having charming looks and looking as handsome as SHAKTHIMAAN with his tooth out n was promptly named BUGS BUNNY.Though I never thought much about my teeth the moment I stepped into coll my dad n mom pestered me to have braces around my teeth.
So alas in 3rd year of engg I was given such a reception by my friends as does a person get when he goes 2 receive the queens award of honour.In this case the award was pullin out couple a tooth which wudnt come out(thank god it wasnt the canine) & put with tiny peices of metal stickin 2 my tooth which wudnt budge even when pulled by a bulldozer.There it was,I was laid down with all sorts of restrictions on wat 2 eat,wat not 2 eat,how 2 bite,were 2 bite,wat 2 bite n all crazy stuff.All in all I had become a compulsive watcher as far as food was concerned.
But for a brilliant hogger like me the temptation was 2 much.I resisted the temptation for a month but one day when I saw a MURUKKU being served to me there goes everything and like rama had completed his vanavas I just climbed into the murukku but at the same time I cud hear metal clintering away.The more I bit the more I cud hear and like a arrow the string in the clip was shattered and I was spittin meatl pieces all over.This started to happen on a regular basics and the culprits ranged from murukku to apple.
The doctor was fed up with me and it was same with me too.So I took sabattical leave from the dentist after eleven months of irrregular treatment.With the help of my friend and a cutting plier (it is prettty versatile tool). I broke the ends of my string with a dentist's precision he he and I was a happy man again untill three days before where I broke the remainin part into shambles and I was looking like Mr.Bean with pieces of metal jutting out of my mouth courtesy an apple.So there I had to go back to meet my nemesis and he said the entire set had to replaced and the treatment to take 4 more months.
Icing on the cake-the bill was Rs.8000 only.God where is all my salary goin.
Moral of the story:-
1. Never put braces even if ur teeth seems to curve like an elephants tusk
2. If u still want to look like Jassy go to the welder not the dentist he cud do a better job at cheaper rates.
3. If u wear braces do not bite just stuff it in(Tried that once too)
