India Maharaja Celebrates Diamond Jubilee

The Maharaja of Kapurthala celebrated the Diamond Jubilee of his accession, his 65 birthday, with all the splendour and ceremony of the east. Among the ruling Princes of India, he stands second only to the Maharaja Gaekwar in the length of reign. The Maharaja of Kapurthala is one of the most widely travelled of Indian Princes. Both Sikh and Hindu rites were observed at the jubilee ceremonies. There was an exchange of congratulatory telegrams between the Maharaja and the King-Emperor.
