dated January 24, 1955: Tito's tribute

Speaking at the state lunch got up in his honour at the Residency in Bangalore on January 22, the Yugoslav President, Marshal Tito, said, "India has made tremendous progress since the achievement of freedom. Such advance is evidence of the creative spirit of the people. Yesterday, at Madras, we were given an opportunity of attending the historic session of the Indian National Congress. We saw your people assembled there. We saw the spirit of new India. There are many difficulties to be confronted in a country like India which is so vast and there is need for a large number of trained specialists. I have seen Indian workers and engineers in industrial concerns and scientists in their institutions and laboratories and I have noticed that they are full of confidence that they would overcome the difficulties and achieve further success. This is the best assurance that India is advancing for a great future." Among those present at the lunch were Sir M. Visvesvaraya, Sir C.V. Raman, Sir Mirza M. Ismail and Mr. V. P. Deenadayalu Naidu, Mayor of Bangalore. The Chief Minister, Mr. K. Hanumanthaiya, welcomed the Yugoslav President.
