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.
