It's a small world

Here's an interesting one -

Late Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran ... of the Rushdie fatwa fame (older generations might remember the overthrow of Shah's regime)

... He has a huge India connection ... It seems his grandfather was born in Barabanki , India and grumps supposedly lived in Lucknow for a long time ... said to have moved on when the British gained the upper hand in India ... the Ayatollah's born name - "Ruhollah ibn Mustafa Musawi Khomeini Hindi" ... so he was called "the Indian" ....

Interestingly .... the guy against whom he pronounced the (in)famous fatwa- Salman Rushdie .... also has Indian roots ... He was born in India and he studied in Bombay

aren't the Indians everywhere ...

Mesothlelioma Symptoms said...

Lung Cancer or Mesothelioma is tragic. That is why I cannot advocate enough for people to recognize the signs and know the Mesothelioma Symptoms. Please educate yourself, and don't think that just because you weren't a smoker or haven't smoked in years that you are immune from Mesothelioma.

I know this sounds cheesy but optimism sometimes is the best medicine.

very interesting. it's got to do with the shia connection. lucknow is still a major learning center for shi-ites.

interestingly,a a month back, while researching the old city of nishabad in iran, i found that one off its progenies happened to be saadat khan. the man who migrated to oudh and founded the nawab dynasty. well, well, well.
