The British Emperor's Guests of Honor

The coronation of King George V was celebrated with great pomp in New Delhi in 1911. Kings and princes, titleholders, high officers and dignitaries were invited to the royal court. To accommodate the guests a new township sprung up over an area of 25 squire miles near Delhi. All modem amenities were provided. The Emperor invited Motilal and his family.

With his wife and two daughters Motilal traveled in a special train to Delhi. His tent was next to that of the Lieutenant governor who had been asked to look after Motilal.
Motilal had been told what clothes he should wear for the royal court. Jawaharlal was studying in England then. He got the clothes; socks, gloves, shoes and hat specially made in London and sent them to his father. A renowned specialist had made each article.
