It gives me great pleasure and immense satisfaction to associate myself on the auspicious occasion of laying the foundation stone ceremony of the Aga Khan Academy at Hyderabad. His Highness Sri Aga Khan requires no introduction to this august gathering here. Yet to refresh our memories, Sri Aga Khan has become Imam at the age of 20, one of the youngest hereditary spiritual leaders in the world.
