    Background: A HUGE CROWD FOLLOWED PRINCE PHILIP WHEREVER HE WENT DURING A TOUR OF A TYPICAL INDIAN VILLAGE NEAR THE JAMUNA RIVER LAST WEEK. THE VILLAGERS, NUMBERING MORE THAN 500 FAMILIES, WELCOMED THE PRINCE AND RAINED FLOWERS PETALS ON HIS PATH.

    THE NARROW ALLEYS OF THE VILLAGE ARE TYPICAL OF THOSE IN THE ARAB COUNTRIES. THE TWO-HOUR TOUR TOOK THE PRINCE TO A TOBACCO - SMOKING DEN. THE DUKE WATCHED THE MEN ENJOYING THE HOOKS (WATER TOBACCO PIPE, USED BY THE ARABS AND TURKS). THE VILLAGE'S TINY WEAVING INDUSTRY IMPRESSED THE PRINCE. THE WEAVING METHOD IS RATHER PRIMITIVE.

    AT A NEARBY SCHOOL, THE TEACHING STAFF HAD THE CHANCE OF TALKING TO THE PRINCE, WHO WAS ALL SMILES DURING HIS TOUR. AT ONE STAGE, PRINCE PHILIP LIFTED UP HIS RIGHT HAND AND URGED THE CROWD NOT TO BREAK THE CORDON.

    HIGHLIGHT OF THE TOUR WAS STILT DANCING PERFORMED BY SCHOOLCHILDREN. THE PRINCE SHOWED HIS APPRECIATION FOR THE DANCE WITH A BIG SMILE.
