In an unprecedented move Pakistan Army, the 7th largest army in the world, has introduced a new course to be taught at Pakistan Military Academy at Kakul. The course is titled Real Estate 101 and will be compulsory for all those entering Kakul. As this will form the heart of the officer corps it is thought to be imperative that they have the basic knowledge to deal with the real estate that they will acquire later on in their careers. In light of the introduction of this course, compulsory English Language courses have now become optional as it is felt that regardless of the courses offered the officers continue to speak their unique brand of English.
Advanced level real estate courses are now being devised for the National Defence College in Quetta where senior officers were initially taught the art of higher military strategy. However, due to popular demand NDC is now rejigging the course to include the real estate courses. Pakistan has not fought a war since 1971 and it is felt that rather than specific skills such as infantry, artillery, intelligence, or mountain warfare the officers should be better equipped in dealing with the real estate that is distributed to them in recognition of their efforts on the battlefield. All ranks higher than Colonel would be allocated a ‘Real Estate PA’ to deal with all their real estate needs.
This initiative would also make the Pakistan Army the ‘first’ in something for the first time since Pakistan’s independence. More details coming shortly -MicroPakistan
