Now that we have attained excellence in begging from almost every country on earth including the 'Friends of Pakistan', time has come to officially introduce 'begging' as a compulsory subject in the educational curriculum of our universities leading to the award of a doctorate degree. Lets prepare our future generation in this art right from the word go thus grooming them to become international beggars. -DR IRFAN ZAFAR, Islamabad, via e-mail, April 24.
