China Myths Debunked
WE all know the facts: In 1949 when the Communist Party took over, China had been mired in civil wars and dismembered by foreign aggressions; its people had suffered widespread famine; average lifeexpectancy was a mere 41 years. Today, it is the second largest economy in the world, a great power with global influence, and its people live in increasing prosperity; average life expectancy has reached 74 years. But the assessment has to go deeper than that, for reasons none other than the apparent discomfort, if not outright disapproval, Western political and intellectual elites feel toward the Communist Party´s leadership.

PETER Oborne, writing in the conservative Daily Telegraph, recently suggested that the Conservative British Prime Minister, David Cameron, was not merely in a mess, he "is in a sewer." That seems about right. Cameron lost it over Rupert Murdoch.

Excitement galore at Hyatt Plaza summer festival



IT was a treat for the shoppers at Hyatt Plaza this month.

The shoppers were filled with fun and joy as the Hyatt Plaza summer festival entered its final days.

The 14-day long entertainment extravaganza offered a memorable shopping experience for the families.

Popular cartoon characters like SpongeBob, Barney, The Smurfs and Lulu Caty entertained the children and families with a variety of activities, including plays, dances, interactive games and gifts.

The Hyatt Plaza summer festival was received by the customers with unprecedented enthusiasm.

The festival took place at Hyatt Plaza, a family-oriented city shopping mall which offers 74 local and international retail, entertainment and food outlets, including Giant Stores, Homes R Us, Pari Gallery, Highland and Kiddy Zone.

“We are delighted by the marvellous responses received from our customers,” said Feroz Moideen, general manager at Hyatt Plaza.

Activities were not confined to the food court.

The entire mall was wrapped up in a festive atmosphere by daily mascot parades.

Aminah, a mother of 12- year-old Nasser, said, “My son is so thrilled.

I took a photograph of him with his favourite ‘Spongebob’.

We had great fun.” “At Hyatt Plaza, we always believed it as our duty to provide a fun-filled environment for the families,” said Fuad Shaqadan, assistant marketing manager (events and promotions).

“We shall always strive to fulfill our commitment as a family shopping destination in the coming years as well,” Shaqadan said.

The Hyatt Plaza summer festival started on July 7. Children were provided with opportunities to win gifts through the widely participated interactive games.

The characters also showcased a special ‘final show’.

Naseem thanked the customers for their amazing support.

“We hope that people who chose to visit the summer festival at Hyatt Plaza were not disappointed.

We are planning to organise more exciting events for our customers during the month of Ramadan,” Naseem said.
