“For over fifteen years I have been asking people of all walks of life from Morocco to India and from Turkey to the Sudan about the implications of a son’s request for his inheritance while the father is still living. The answer has almost always been emphatically the same.”


…the conversation runs as follows:


“Has anyone ever made such a request in your village?”


“Never!”


“Could anyone ever make such a request?”


“Impossible!”


“If anyone did, what would happen?”


“His father would beat him, of course!”


“Why?”


“This request means – he wants his father to die!”
