1 Sahil Badruddin = ""I left Harvard for a year and a half, toured all the main centres of the community, and then decided it was the last chance I would have to complete my university studies. So I went back to Harvard and completed the year and a half in half a year. But of course at the same time was handling community matters which was a lot to do. "Harvard is a tremendous training [sic] and I think it also teaches you to work under very heavy pressure if you want to get the best out of it. It is, I think, very unique to be able to listen to the greatest authorities on practically any subject which you can imagine. There were some 350 courses being given at Harvard. I audited as many as I could. Of course, I didn't know that I was going to become Aga Khan so that before my grandfather's death I audited and followed the courses which interested me. Then after his death I audited all those courses which I thought could help me in my work and I think was very lucky to be able to go there." -His Highness the Aga Khan's 1967 interview for the documentary, 'Pacemakers: A Man of the World -- The Aga Khan' (London, United Kingdom)"
