President Lalani, Institutional Leaders and volunteers,
I would like, first of all, to thank you for the magnificent evening you have offered Me and for this lovely gift of this Khorasani horse.
Mr.Chairman, Board of Trustees, Trustees, generous donors, honoured guests, I was not supposed to say anything at this gathering but it is such an important gathering, so meaningful for the future of the Institution, for the support that you are giving it that I wanted to share with you some comments before the morning was over.
President Vest, Members of the Corporation of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, distinguished members of the Faculty, Mayor Reeves, happy graduates, even happier parents, and others gathered here today:
I am pleased and honoured to be with you this morning.
MIT has shown a standard of excellence in education and research that sets a benchmark for universities everywhere. You who have been at the Institute for years may be excused if you take this in stride, but for me, coming here for the first time in several years, the energy of the place is palpable.

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.
