For her eighteenth birthday, on February 20, 1918, in the Taj Mahal Hotel Ball Room, Ruttie had surreptitiously sent an invitation card to her Jay. Ruttie had reserved a chair for him on main table, occupied by her parents, Uncle Khusru, aunt Chantal, Governor, Sir George Lloyd and his enchanting wife, Lady Christina Lloyd. Jay, reed thin dressed like a fashion plate, in a black tuxedo made his entry in the Taj Mahal Ball Room. He looked like the proverbial knight in shining armour. Ruttie received Jay at the entrance, led her beau to the chair next to her mother, Lady Dina Petit. Sir Dinshaw was a gentleman and he swallowed his pride, made polite conversation with Jay. But then as if on cue, the Hotel orchestra began the evening with Chopin's music "So deep is the night." And the five feet two, small built and size, Ruttie in a low evening dress, led the debonair to the dance floor where she sought his consent. To a flabbergasted audience, in the culmination of the tune, "So deep is the night" Ruttie leading Jay by her hand, went to the microphone, where she impetuously announced "Jay and I are getting married." Sir Dinshaw controlled his ire. The guests heaped congratulations. But towards the end of the party, after Sir Lloyd George and his spouse Christina had departed, Sir Khusru felicitated his elder brother, Sir Dinshaw, who lost his cool and patience. Generally, the Anglophile Sir Dinshaw, spoke in English and with his wife Dina and sister-in-law Chantal in French. This time he blurted angrily in his vernacular Gujarati, while looking down at Jinnah: "Ah Musla, ne mari decri apun!" (Must I give my daughter to this Musla. The word Musla in Gujarati is a pun for Muslims).

The story of Axact is a typical Pakistani story. If you have the money, it is easier to purchase a fake document with no questions asked. The legal process is so inconvenient. That is why there are over 50,000 vehicles in Karachi with fake number plates; 90 percent weapons licenses issued by the state (please note: 'the state') are fake; there are 6,207 fake schools in Sindh. In our country scams are a fine art. The only special status of Axact selling fake diplomas, degrees and allegedly also PhDs is its global scale and multi-million dollar profits. What the Axact scandal has exposed is that fakery in education is at the apex of all kind frauds we patronise.
Traditional Islamic calligraphy is admired and collected world-wide for its spiritual, aesthetic and symbolic qualities and meanings. Many calligraphers using their creative energies practice this art and received admiration and respect from the society and art lovers. Arif Khan is also a calligrapher who wanted to give new dimension to his calligraphic work through colours and different styles following distinctive established styles in order to achieve a particular artistic effect that prove his naturalness and spontaneity.
Scrolling through a painting on a touch-screen, examining a sculpture with a virtual magnifying glass, or being guided from your hotel room all the way to the museum entrance - the age of the app has begun in Germany's museums. "More and more museums are replacing their audio guides with app-based guides on tablets and smartphones," says Thomas Thiemeyer, professor of cultural studies at the University of Tuebingen.
Allowing young children to choose books they'd like to read over the summer break from school may hone their reading skills and prevent "summer slide" in reading scores, suggests new research. Kids who were allowed to select books to take home at the end of the spring term had better reading scores when they returned to school in the fall, compared to kids who received books they had not chosen, researchers found.
Playing your collection of movies and music in the comfort of the living room is getting easier, thanks to rapidly improving apps for smartphones and tablet computers that take control of other storage devices in the home, German experts say. One media streaming app that can play movies, music or photos from the home network is AirStream. You can access any computer on the home network once the free app is installed. Setting it up is easy and then content can be played on whatever device you like.
Water is essential for life on Earth. It is a symbol of devotion and purity. Water covers two third of the Earth's surface and the human body consists of 75 percent of water. About 97 percent of the water on the Earth is salt water and only three percent is fresh water; slightly over two thirds of this is frozen in glaciers and polar ice caps. The remaining unfrozen freshwater is found mainly as groundwater, with only a small fraction present above ground or in the air.
