Farhad: What’s the matter? Anything serious?
Fahad: He is affected by dengue fever.
Farhad: Dengue fever! This means he’s a critical patient and going to die?

Farhad: Sorry Fahad. I know a little of Dengue. Can you explain in short what this disease is?

Farhad: Thank you so much, Fahad. I’ve learnt a lot about dengue from you. Probably I spoiled a lot of your time.
Fahad: Oh no, I have to go instantly.
