The music after dinner was fantastic! A drummer and lute player from Afganistan were really delightful. Wonderful silk road music. Heavenly. Then the Aga Khan spoke, accepting his award. At first he seemed nervous. Later he started to seem more comfortable. After the speech, he looked very humble accepting the award from the museum director, like a little boy who was embarrassed.

Thanks Malik for this interesting report highlighting all the essential aspects of the event. I was particularly touched by the spontaneous recollections and reflections of the World Bank President.

If we can get reports like these about all public appearances of MHI, it mitigates the need for everyone to be there - sometimes at a displeasure of the Imam. I personally am indifferent whether I am in his physical presence or not, so long as I can get pertinent information about what he says, what others say about him etc.

Thank you, Karim, for your compliment. I am gratified by the response I have received from around the world for the reflection that I contributed. This has come from both Ismailis and non-Ismailis including new friends at the National Building Museum. I wish I had done the same for the forum that followed on the 26th, but that would have been an extremely daunting challenge in view of the depthness and length of the discussion. I may say that all the panelists performed admirably. Hazar Imam was at ease and felt extremely confortable during the entire session. I met Charles Correa later at a Spanish retaurant on 7th Street and he told me he really enjoyed being a panelist. He further told me that he had never seen Hazar Imam particpate in a public forum such as this one, except at seminars related to the Aga Khan awards.

Thank you once again to everyone who wrote to me.

In my article I noted that the Japanese architect Mr. Bruno Freschi met at the Scully award ceremony is responsible for designing the Ismaili center in Toronto. He is in fact designing the museum and the AKDN center in Ottawa and not the Jamat Khana. I regret the error.

Mr. Bruno Freschi is not the Japanese architect. He is the architect of the Ismaili Jamat Khana & Center in Burnaby, B.C.
