The Sri lankans are notorious to do things to boost up the ego."Doctus" in Latin means learned.For a medical doctor like me "Dr" is a job discription,like Piyadasa baassunnahe,chef Pererea I am Dr. so & so .The medical ordinance however gives me the legal right to use it.
Universities offer doctorates in keeping with Latin word "doctus".Honarary doctorates also should be given to people who are learned.Soma Edirisinghe and Sicille Kotalawala are trying to out do each other with doctorates.(Typical of women)Then there is Deshamanya Doctor Lalith Kotalawala.Then of course there is Minister Doctor Meryvn Silva.
