Definition

You may have an M.D from Johns Hopkins and, what the heck, you may be the actual Dr. Robert Jarvik who invented the artificial heart, but unless the local community declares you to be a "Kai Raasi" doctor, you will be lucky to prescribe Amrutanjan for headaches...

...Kai Raasi translates loosely into "Lucky Hands", meaning the doctor's touch is simply sufficient to heal thine ailments, and he/she may gain such an honorific, through some sort of old-world equivalent of crowd-voting and leader-boards..Think of it as something like Samosapedia's LPW, but spread word-of-mouth....

Usage

Maid Muniamma: Endha doctor paakareenga Amma? (Which doctor are you seeing, Amma?)
Mistress of the House: Girija Doctor
Maid Muniamma: Ushoo, Prema Doctor'a paarunga amma, Kai Raasi doctor...(Ushoo, See Dr. Prema amma, She has lucky hands)
