  • Description

    The fifth Inter-University Youth Festival of India got off to a fine start on Monday, October 27, with a reflective inaugural address by Premier Nehru and a programs of dance and music by University students.

    Over 1,500 students from 34 Universities attended the annual 10-day festival at the Talkatora Gardens. Also, members of the diplomatic corps, Ministers and University officials were present for the inauguration.

    Mr. Nehru's speech was devoted mainly to the history and development of India, socially, culturally and industrially, over the last 150 years. The changes in the Indian scene held no fear no fear for Premier Nehru. On the contrary he welcomed them and sought to promote them. To him, change was the law of life.

    The rest of the afternoon was spent watching the sinuous dancers swaying to the strange, high-pitched music characteristic to India.
