  • Description

    Visnews filmed Madras Jan 13 as guns boomed a salute to Marshal Tito's yacht Galeb entering the gaily decorated harbour.

    At the main quay the Jugoslav ambassador, Indian Deputy Foreign Minister Mrs. Lakshmi Menon, Madras Governor Bishnuram Medhi and other local dignatories were waiting to greet the Jugoslav President and his wife on the first stage of their seven-day visit to India.

    Accompanied by the Governor of Madras, Marshal Tito drove in state to the Governor's residence through decorated streets. Later he went to Mahabalipuram - in the outskirts of Madras - famous for its splendid Buddhist temples.

    On a good-will tour President Tito came to India after visits of Egypt. Indonesia and Burma. This is his second visit to India.
