From U2 to Bryan Adams?

by Al-Hack on 1st September, 2006 at 1:01 am    

While Hindi films are only now making their way to theatres in Pakistan, music has always made it’s way across the border to our country. And the latest musician to cross the LoC is Shehzad Roy.

With his catchy numbers and boyish good looks that make female fans swoon, Roy is the latest musician to try his luck in India from across the salt desert [Pakistan].

A youngster whose influences have ranged from U2 to Bryan Adams, Kishore Kumar and R D Burman to Abida Parveen, Shehzad Roy is in Mumbai to promote his album Salli.

Great story, terrible taste in music.

Also spotted this a few days ago.

THE Royal Navy have appointed their first non-white admiral. Pakistan-born Muslim immigrant Amjad Hussain, 47, was this week promoted to rear admiral from commodore.

He is the highest ranking ethnic officer among the 200,000 men and women of the three armed forces. The dad of three said yesterday: “I count myself very lucky to live in a country where the opportunities have been beyond my imagination.”

The RAF have a black air commodore — one rank behind Rear Admiral Hussain. The Army’s highest ranking ethnic officer is a full colonel.

    The first non-white Captain in the RN was John Perkins in 1800. It’s also said that Admiral of the Fleet Sir John Fisher, Baron Fisher of Kilverstone was partly Sinhalese.
