On The Pakistan-Iran-India Gas Pipeline

As reports come in of India, Iran and Pakistan setting up a joint working
group to take forward the pipeline project to bring Iranian gas to India,
the United States is stepping up its pressure to scuttle the project. The
US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, has conveyed to the Pakistani Foreign
Minister that the project could violate the Iran and Libya sanctions Act.
This blatant pressure by the United States should be rejected by both India
and Pakistan.

The Prime Minister, during his visit to Washington next month, must convey
India's stand that it will not give up this project due to American


Mohammad Ali Jinnah
JAMMU: "Aey sarzameen-i-pak Zarrey terey hein aaj sitaron sey tabnak Roshan
heh kehkashan sey kahin aaj teri khak."("Oh land of Pakistan, each particle
of yours is being illuminated by stars. Even your dust has been brightened
like a rainbow."')
These are lines from Pakistan's first national anthem - written by Jagannath
Azad, a Lahore-based Hindu, acceding to the wishes of Mohammad Ali Jinnah,
the country's founder and first Governor-General.

Basel, Switzerland: Perhaps the oddest piece of work at Art Basel is a
bar of soap, displayed on a square of black velvet, purportedly made from
Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's fat, removed during liposuction.

Gianni Monti's work called 'Clean Hands' -- the title is a play on the
name of an anti-Mafia group -- sold in less than an hour for 15,000 euros
(10,000 pounds) to a private Swiss collector, according to Monti's Galerie
Nicola von Senger of Zurich.

Husband and wife are waiting at the bus stop with their nine children.
A blind man joins them after a few minutes. When the bus arrives,
they find it overloaded and only the wife and the nine kids
are able to fit onto the bus.
So the husband and the blind man decide to walk.
After a while, the husband gets irritated by the ticking of the stick
of the blind man as he taps it on the sidewalk, and says to him,
"Why don't you put a piece of rubber at the end of your stick?
That ticking sound is driving me crazy."
The blind man replies, "If you would've put a rubber
at the end of YOUR stick, we'd be riding the bus ... so shut the hell up."
