Honorable Minister of Tourism and Culture Dr. Mahesh Sharma
Secretary Mr. Ravindra Singh
Secretary Dr. Lalit Panwar
You have been most generous with your comments this afternoon and I thank you warmly for the encouragement you have given to the people of the Trust for Culture and myself. And I would like to begin these comments by repeating what I said when the foundation-stone was laid sometime ago of the restoration of the Humayun’s Tomb.
Work will start on the construction of the “country’s first” sunken museum on April 7 at the iconic Humayun’s Tomb site, which after its completion in 2017 will showcase the heritage of the Nizamuddin Area over the last seven centuries.
Expected to be completed in 30 months, the project has been pledged a fund of Rs 49 crore from the tourism ministry. Inspired from the medieval baolis (water tanks) of northern India, the underground site museum, with a built-up area of 9,000 square metre, will marry modern 21st century architecture with Mughal-era craftsmanship in its design.

AN INTIMATE TRIBUTE BY HIS HIGHNESS PRINCE SADRUDDIN AGA KHAN ON THE
CENTENARY OF HIS FATHER'S BIRTH
My father, the late Aga Khan, was born 100 years ago on 2nd November. Though
he died in 1957 at the turn of what Winston Churchill aptly termed "this
tormented half century", few today can separate reality from myth when
looking back on his long and active life.To many in the West, he remains the
religious leader who was weighed against precious stones, the race horse
owner who won five Derbies or the man whose eldest son, Aly Khan, once
married Rita Hayworth.
Honourable Deputy Prime Minister, Your Excellencies, distinguished guests
It is a great pleasure for my wife and I to be in Singapore again and to see for ourselves what tremendous developments have taken place here over the last few years. Your government, Mr. Rajaratnam, deserves congratulations for the economic miracle you have achieved, in spite of the recession in the industrialized countries.
