    Background: On the last day of his visit to Kabul, Mr. Nehru visited the Kabul Museum, Tomb of Babar and later the All Russian built SILO Factory.

    Babar was the Afghan King who in 15th Century attacked India, conquered and started what was known as the MUGHAL DYNASTY. One of the most powerful dynasties of Kings lasted well over 100 Years till Britishers came. Babar himself, after assuming throne, could not live long and died after five years. As the legend has it, his son Hamayun (the next Moughal King) fell seriously ill and was on the verge of death, Babar is reported to have prayed to God to take away his sons sickness and give it him if HE must. From that day Babar started getting weaker and sick while Hamayun improved, till Hamayun was completely cured while Babar died.

    The last item on the itenary of Mr. Nehru was the Silo Factory, built by Russians. The bread here is made untouched by hand. Mr. Nehru was received by the Russian Chief Engineer and then taken round the Factory
