  • Description

    STILL TEN DAYS OFF COMPLETION, THE SECOND INDIAN INDUSTRIES FAIR WAS INAUGURATED IN NEW DELHI NOVEMBER 14 BY DR. S. RADHAKRISHNAN, THE INDIAN VICE-PRESIDENT. AS IF THE INCOMPLETION WAS NOT ENOUGH, THE SPECIALLY INVITED AUDIENCE WERE BOARDED BY A SUDDEN DOWNPOUR OF RAIN BEFORE THE VICE-PRESIDENT'S ARRIVAL.

    IN HIS INAUGURAL SPEECH, DR. RADHAKRISHNAN COMMENDED THE FAIR AS A PICTURE OF INDIAN PROGRESS DURING THE SECOND FIVE-YEAR PLAN. THIS IS THE SECOND INDIAN INDUSTRIES FAIR, THE FIRST HAVING TAKEN PLACE IN 1955. IN ADDITION TO A NUMBER OF INDIAN PAVILIONS, TWENTY OTHER NATIONS, INCLUDING GERMANY, GREAT BRITAIN, JAPAN, THE UNITED STATES AND THE SOVIET UNION ARE REPRESENTED AT THE FAIR, WHICH IS DUE TO END ON JANUARY 1, 1962.

    WITH A THEME OF "INDIA AND THE UNITED KINGDOM. PARTNERS IN PROGRESS", BRITAIN'S EXHIBITION IS THE LARGEST IT HAS EVER STAGED IN ASIA, LARGER EVEN THAN THE EXHIBITION IN MOSCOW. AMERICA AND RUSSIA HAVE BOTH FILLED THEIR GIANT PAVILIONS WITH MASSIVE DISPLAYS OF HEAVY MACHINERY, AND OF COURSE MODELS OF THEIR SPACE TRIUMPHS.
