Let The Doves Gather

We don't know if the great Dilip Kumar is a deep reader of statecraft. But it wasn't going to matter to former Pakistan foreign minister Khu­r­­shid Mahmud Kasuri.

Pele! Means magic, and that supernatural bicycle kick. In Calcutta to attend an ISL match, football's ambassador created a stir that no 74-year-old could.

For many at the Eden Gardens, it was the best day of their young lives, the day they saw Pele!
