His Highness the Aga Khan's 2008 book 'Where Hope Takes Root – Democracy and Pluralism in an interdependent World’ (Canada)

Dear Friends,

NanoWisdoms' Suggested Readings series highlights important selections from our Archive of Imamat speeches, interviews and writings. This installment's selection is His Highness the Aga Khan's 2008 book Where Hope Takes Root – Democracy and Pluralism in an interdependent World.
Published in 2008, Where Hope Takes Root is a collection of 13 of the Aga Khan's principal speeches, made between 2002 and 2006, along with his important 2006 interview with the CBC's Peter Mansbridge. Focused on the theme "democracy and pluralism in an interdependent world," the book -- which deserves to be read repeatedly -- could arguably be subtitled as "The Essential Aga Khan."

The NanoWisdoms Archive is pleased to make this seminal collection available at the link below for those who have not had the opportunity to read it.

New Interview Transcript: His Highness the Aga Khan's 2008 Syrian TV Interview (Aleppo, Syria)

Dear Friends,
In August 2008, following the Opening Ceremony of the Aleppo and Masyaf Citadels and the Castle of Salah ad-Din, His Highness the Aga Khan gave Syrian TV a wide-ranging and important interview. The NanoWisdoms Archive is pleased to make available the interview's transcript for all to study and reflect over at these critical times.
Among the many topics covered, the Aga Khan discusses AKDN's extensive development plans for Syria, the role of culture as a development strategy and his firm belief in employing public-private partnerships to meet societal needs. The interview ends with the Aga Khan's message to the Syrian people and the Ummah, setting out Syria's unique place in Islam's history and informing the Ummah, twice, that "progress does not mean occidentalisation" and that Muslim "values systems are massively important for the future.

Sir Sultan Mahomed Shah, Aga Khan III's 1946 lecture at the Dar es Salaam Cultural Society, 'World Peace and Its Problems' (Dar es Salaam, Tanzania)

Dear Friends,
Almost 70 years ago -- within a year of the Allies' World War II victory, the establishment of the United Nations and the partition of India -- Sir Sultan Mahomed Shah, Aga Khan III, noting that 'what is history except on rare occasions one long, long story of war and warfare?', delivered this sweeping, global assessment outlining out potential contributions the major actors on the world stage -- the United States, Europe, Russia and China -- could offer to ensure world peace.

While Sir Sultan Mahomed Shah singles out the United States and Britain as the linchpins for a peaceful, post World War II world -- explaining that "without a common peace policy of these two central world powers ... we will be building on the sands of the seashore" -- he also issues a cautionary note that it was also essential to draw the curtain on the era of "plantation" colonialism, lest the colonies themselves become "apples of discord" and "breeding grounds for future world warfare."

Particularly noteworthy from his assessments are, firstly, Sir Sultan Mahomed Shah's observation that China has "from time immemorial [been] essentially peaceful ... and has for thousands of years never shown any spirit of aggression and has been one of the bastions of moral peace and live and let live in the world." And secondly -- particularly in light the present Aga Khan's call for nations to cooperate with one another on common issues through regional alliances -- was his retrospection that "the absence of proper provisions for regional alliances organised under the League [of Nations] itself, for the maintenance of peace, was another, and perhaps the most serious, of the causes of its break-down when it came up against the realities of power politics."
Notwithstanding that, given more recent events, informed observers are of the opinion that the United States has forgone the nobler role of peacekeeper it had assumed in the years immediately following World War II, Sir Sultan Mahomed Shah's global assessment, remains as relevant in today's troubled times of as it was some 70 years ago.

Sir Sultan Mahomed Shah, Aga Khan III's 1925 article 'How to live long' (London, United Kingdom)
Dear Friends,

Almost 90 years ago -- decades before the more recent interest in health, diet and exercise -- Sir Sultan Mahomed Shah, Aga Khan III, wrote this short but lovely article on keeping healthy opening it with the remark that "all my life I have been keenly interested in the kindred subjects of exercise and diet, and their influence on the general health and fitness of the human body."

His advice -- which could have been written today with little if any change -- is concise, practical, at least half a century ahead of its time and worthy of everyone's attention.

Dear Friends,
His Highness the Aga Khan has been the driving force behind an ambitious project to revitalise his home town neighbourhood of Chantilly. The Fondation de Chantilly — established by the Aga Khan in 2005 — "seeks to leverage the area’s cultural assets to create a sustainable model for heritage preservation and contribute towards social, cultural and economic development in the region."

As part of the effort a new museum, The Museum of The Horse, was developed and opens this weekend. Francesca Cumani, whose father trained horses for the Aga Khan, talks with him as they walk through the museum.
