India's president comes to the UAE

On Sunday, the UAE welcomes the Indian president Pratibha Patil on a three-day state visit. The trip will be the 75-year-old's first to the Gulf. Here we look at the significance of the visit.

Who is Pratibha Patil?

A member of the centre-left Indian National Congress, Pratibha Patil is the 12th and current president of the Republic of India. She is the former governor of Rajasthan state and the first woman to hold the office. She was sworn in on July 25, 2007, after her election victory over Bhairon Singh Shekhawat.

What does the Indian President do?

In reality, the president has little day-to-day powers. India has a parliamentary system of government, much like the United Kingdom, where the president is a largely symbolic figurehead who signs laws passed by the cabinet into the statute books, in the same way as Queen Elizabeth II does in Britain. Unlike the Queen, the Indian president is elected from a group of nominees by the elected members of the Indian parliament and state legislatures and serves for a term of five years. Incumbents are allowed to stand for re-election.

What is her background?

Pratibha Patil was born in the village of Nadgaon in the Jalgaon district of Maharashtra and went on to study for a law degree from the University of Bombay. She started her career as a lawyer in the Jalgaon District Court and worked on several social activities, especially those aimed at helping women in poverty. Her political career began when she was just 27 years -old and elected to the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly.

When is she here?

Mrs Patil arrives for a four-day visit lasting from Sunday, November 21 to Thursday, November 25. During that time she will meet separately with Sheikh Khalifa, President of the UAE and Ruler of Abu Dhabi, and Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, the Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. She will also tour Indian-related facilities in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah.

Why is she here?

MK Lokesh, the Indian ambassador to the UAE, has said the visit will highlight business, political and community-related issues. The UAE is India's biggest trading partner, with imports and exports worth US$44.5 billion (Dh163bn) in 2009, according to the Indian government.

What have previous visits between the two countries been like?

Although a first for President Patil, official visits between the two countries date back to when Sheikh Zayed, the founding President of the UAE, toured India in 1975. Several heads of state from India have visited the UAE since the 1970s, including President Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed in 1976. Prime minister Indira Gandhi's trip in 1981 also remains memorable to expatriates who were living here at the time. The last Indian head of state to visit was APJ Abdul Kalam, Mrs Patil's predecessor, in 2003.

What will Mrs Patil be doing in the UAE?

The Indian president is expected to meet the Abu Dhabi and Dubai chambers of commerce and address Indian expatriates at the India Social and Cultural Centre in Abu Dhabi, She will also inaugurate the Indian Islamic Centre on Al Falah Street, the foundation stone for which was laid by Indira Gandhi in 1981, the Indian Workers Resource Centre in Dubai and the Indian trade and exhibition centre in Sharjah.

In quotes

Indian ambassador MK Lokesh: "It is a very elaborate visit, where she will be attending a lot of Indian functions. This is the first visit by the president to the Gulf and the UAE will be the first country she visits."

Sudhir Shetty, former president of the India Social and Cultural Centre in Abu Dhabi: "The India Social Centre is a proud moment for all Indians living here. Her visit will further enhance the projects we are putting up, and the facilities we are able to provide. These moments are rare. A person no less than the president of India is visiting the centre. This is a great honour."

Mohan Jashanmal, the chairman of the Jashanmal group, said: "When the late Sheikh Zayed had gone to India to visit Indira Gandhi, that was really memorable for us. This visit by the current president is a continuity of that relationship that Sheikh Zayed founded. He started by opening the doors to go to India."

'The worst thing you can eat'

Trans fat is typically found in fried and baked goods, but you may be consuming more than you think.

Powdered coffee creamer, microwave popcorn and virtually anything processed with a crust is likely to contain it, as this guide from Mayo Clinic outlines: 

Baked goods - Most cakes, cookies, pie crusts and crackers contain shortening, which is usually made from partially hydrogenated vegetable oil. Ready-made frosting is another source of trans fat.

Snacks - Potato, corn and tortilla chips often contain trans fat. And while popcorn can be a healthy snack, many types of packaged or microwave popcorn use trans fat to help cook or flavour the popcorn.

Fried food - Foods that require deep frying — french fries, doughnuts and fried chicken — can contain trans fat from the oil used in the cooking process.

Refrigerator dough - Products such as canned biscuits and cinnamon rolls often contain trans fat, as do frozen pizza crusts.

Creamer and margarine - Nondairy coffee creamer and stick margarines also may contain partially hydrogenated vegetable oils.

Why your domicile status is important

Your UK residence status is assessed using the statutory residence test. While your residence status – ie where you live - is assessed every year, your domicile status is assessed over your lifetime.

Your domicile of origin generally comes from your parents and if your parents were not married, then it is decided by your father. Your domicile is generally the country your father considered his permanent home when you were born. 

UK residents who have their permanent home ("domicile") outside the UK may not have to pay UK tax on foreign income. For example, they do not pay tax on foreign income or gains if they are less than £2,000 in the tax year and do not transfer that gain to a UK bank account.

A UK-domiciled person, however, is liable for UK tax on their worldwide income and gains when they are resident in the UK.
