Mr. Sheriff, Honourable Chief Justice, Committee of Hosts, Ladies and Gentlemen
In the last ten years, it has been My good fortune to visit Bombay five times, and you, Mr. Sheriff, did Me the great honour of offering a similar reception to Me during My last visit in 1962. I thank you and the committee of hosts for your kindness. Your good wishes for the numerous garlands and for the most magnificent casket which I have been offered.

Your Lordship, Municipal Councillors, Citizens of Bombay

You have been very gracious in offering this reception in My honour and I am most sincerely grateful for your kind hospitality and for the warm words which you have said to Me in your address. Perhaps the fact that I have visited this great metropolis five times in the last ten years does not convey possibly enough the very special significance which Bombay has always had for Me.

Mr. President of the Managing Council, Members, Ladies and Gentlemen

This, as you said Mr. President, is the 5th time that I have visited the Hospital in the last ten years. When I told the Federal Council of the Ismaili Community in India, that I would be visiting in this year, they said to Me, “certainly you never come to India”, and yet this is the fifth time in ten years and I do not believe I have visited any other area more often than India in the last ten years. I just want to get the record straight.

Mr. Chairman, Excellencies, Distinguished Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen.

Let me first say how grateful I am for your invitation to speak to this distinguished audience in Karachi today and for your kind words about my family and about myself.

Perhaps I should begin by defining what I mean by the phrase “Nation States”. First it is the land area or areas over which a single government exercises authority in terms of internal administration and external defense and whose frontiers are recognized, legally or de facto, by other nation states.
