southward towards Nepal Terai, bisecting Mustang. Routes paralleling the river once served as a major trade route between Tibet and India, especially for salt. Part of the river valley in the southern Mustang District forms by some measures the deepest gorge in the world. Traditional Mustang (the Lo Kingdom) is 53&nbsp;km north-south at its longest and 60&nbsp;km east - west at its widest, and ranges from a low point of 2750&nbsp;m above sea level on the Kali Gandaki (Gandaki River) River just north of Kagbeni to 6700&nbsp;m (Khamjung Himal, a peak in southeast Mustang.) thumb right Raja Jigme Dorje Palbar Bista (File:Jigme Palbar Bista.jpg) Mustang was once an independent kingdom, although closely tied by language and culture to Tibet. From the 15th century to the 17th century, its strategic location granted Mustang control over the trade between the Himalayas and India. At the end of the 18th century the kingdom was annexed by Nepal. Commons:Category:India Wikipedia:India Dmoz:Regional Asia India

'''''The Secret Life of Us''''' was an Australian television drama series set in the beachside suburb of St Kilda (St Kilda, Victoria), Melbourne, Australia. The series was produced by Southern Star Group and screened in Australia from 2001 to 2005 on Network Ten and on Channel 4 in the UK. Initially co-funded by the two networks, Channel 4 pulled out after the third series and the fourth series was not aired in the UK. It has been shown in other countries such as New Zealand (TV3 (TV3 (New Zealand))), Ireland (Republic of Ireland) (RTÉ Two), Canada (SuperChannel3), the Netherlands (Yorin), France (Canal Plus), Estonia (ETV (Eesti Televisioon), Kanal 11), Norway (NRK), Serbia (B92, TV Avala), Russia (TNT (TNT (Russian TV channel)), Muz TV) and Israel (Channel 2 (Channel 2 (Israel))). thumb left 200px The Balfour Declaration of 1917 (File:Balfour portrait and declaration.JPG) which supported the establishment of a Jewish homeland in Palestine and protected the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities. As a result of a mutual defense treaty that the Ottoman Empire made with Germany, during World War I the Ottoman Empire joined the Central Powers and therefore the Ottoman Empire was now embroiled in a conflict with Great Britain and France. The possibility of releasing Palestine from the control of the Ottoman Empire led the Jewish population and the Arab population in Palestine to support the alignment of the United Kingdom, France, and Russia (Triple Entente) during World War I. In 1915, the Hussein-McMahon Correspondence was formed as an agreement with Arab leaders to grant sovereignty to Arab lands under Ottoman control to form an Arab state in exchange for the Great Arab Revolt against the Ottomans. However, the Balfour Declaration (Balfour Declaration, 1917) in 1917 proposed to "favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, but that nothing should be done to prejudice the civil and religious rights of the existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine." In 1916, the Anglo-French Sykes-Picot Agreement allocated to the British Empire the area of present day Jordan, the area of present day Israel and the West Bank, and the area of present day Iraq. The Balfour Declaration was seen by Jewish nationalists as the cornerstone of a future Jewish homeland on both sides of the Jordan River, but increased the concerns of the Arab population in the Palestine region. After World War I and the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, in April 1920 the Allied Supreme Council meeting at San Remo (San Remo Conference) granted to Britain the mandates for Palestine and Transjordan (the territories that include the area of present day Israel, Jordan, West Bank and the Gaza Strip), endorsing the terms of the Balfour Declaration (Balfour Declaration of 1917). In August 1920, this was officially acknowledged in the Treaty of Sèvres. Both Zionist and Arab representatives attended the conference, where they met and signed an agreement (Faisal–Weizmann Agreement) MidEast Web - Feisal-Weizmann Agreement to cooperate. The agreement was never implemented. The borders and terms under which the mandate was to be held were not finalised until September 1922. Article 25 of the mandate specified that the eastern area (then known as Transjordan or Transjordania) did not have to be subject to all parts of the Mandate, notably the provisions regarding a Jewish national home. This was used by the British as one rationale to establish an autonomous Arab state under the mandate, which it saw as at least partially fulfilling the undertakings in the Hussein-McMahon Correspondence. On 11 April 1921 the British passed administration of the eastern region of the British Mandate to the Hashemite Arab dynasty from the Hejaz region (a region located in present day Saudi Arabia) and on 15 May 1923 recognized it as a state, thereby eliminating Jewish national aspirations on that part of the British Mandate of Palestine. The mandate over Transjordan ended on 22 May 1946 when the Hashemite Kingdom of Transjordan (later Jordan) gained independence. On 15 March 1972 King Hussein of Jordan (Hussein of Jordan) unveiled his plan for a "United Arab Kingdom (King Hussein's federation plan)", which will be a federation consisting of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and a Palestinian Arab state in the West Bank which was formerly under Jordan's control. According to King Hussein's proposal each state would have it's own parliament and would be united under one monarch. Hussein conditioned the establishment of th UAK on a treaty between Jordan and Israel. The plan was eventually ruled out after it was rejected by Israel and after the PLO and other Arab states strongly opposed the plan. Kamal Salibi, ''The Modern History of Jordan'' (I. B.
