As Ismailis around the world prepare for the Jubilee Games in Dubai, the Jamat of the Far East came together in November to participate in their own sports tournament, which served as a regional qualifier for the international Games.

Earlier this year, Ismaili youth from the Far East came together in Thailand to join in celebrating the country’s new year festival – well known for celebrants splashing water on one another! It proved to be a memorable way for the youth to connect while immersing themselves in a unique tradition of Thai culture, says participant Adeel Gilani.
