Background: Close to the river Jumna with a population of 503 families village MAVI KALAN welcomed Duke of Edinburgh with its band and garlands. The Duke showed keen interest in the village and its people. He went around the narrow streets, where women showered flowers, and men followed him in one large procession. At the end of his visit the Duke unveiled a corner stone for a new village school. The Duke spent almost two hours in the village.
