  • Description

    With President Prasad and Premier Nehru, the Duke of Edinburgh watched a two-hour programme of Indian Folk Dancing, New Delhi, Jan 27.

    This was part of the Indian Republic Day celebrations. There were dancers from every region of the sub-continent. Musicians played traditional tunes as dancers weaved and bobbed, dressed in exotically coloured folk costumes.

    To date the Duke's two week tour has been a success. Wherever he goes the Inidan people give him enthusiastic welcomes. Just before the Republic Day parade in Delhi, the multitudes called for the Duke, and with Premier Nehru the Duke of Edinburgh drove for a short way in a jeep, waving to the thousands of cheering people.
