One can never forget Jerome K Jerome humorous story ‘The man who was a Hospital’ in which the main character keeps taking on all ailments mentioned around him. Hearing about Gen Musharraf’s many health problems and then the medical reports that said he has no serious ailment was a hilarious joke. He had always portrayed himself as a brave, energetic and healthy person, this sudden illness does not suite a man of his background! Let us all pray for the generals health, may he enjoy many more of his golden years.
