Behind the video,
For the first time since the Communist assumption of power in the state of Kerala, India, the Prime Minister of India, Mr. Jawaharlal Nehru has paid an official state visit.

His first point of call was at Trivandrum, the capital where he was met by the Governor of the State, Mr Ramakrishna Rao (wearing the cap) and the Communist Chief Minister Mr. E.M.S. Nambudripad. The Governor garlanded Mr. Nehru as he stepped down from the plane, and shook hands. Then flowers and Arti (candle lights) were offered in Kerala traditional, fashion, and 68 pigeons were released to follow the one Mr. Nehru released, the whole to symbolize Mr. Nehru’s 69 years of peaceful life.

On the way into the town shouting crowds lined the route ‘Nehru Zindabad’ they called – Long Live Nehru – Later Mr. Nehru inaugurated the Mahatma Gandhi College in Trivandrum.
