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.

Newly Woman In White

A coming-out ceremony for young women in many old cultures had been the forebear of the European debutante's ball. One such tradition limping along is Paris's Le Bal, which brings toget­her 25 heiresses.

They Saw The King

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. Receptions were thrown, and the CM fed him sweets, but all comparisons and memories were about the 2-2 draw New York Cosmos played with Mohun Bagan on September 22, 1977. For many at the Eden Gardens, it was the best day of their young lives, the day they saw Pele!
