Check that, in this picture and the next one, you can see the horsemen with umbrellas at the back. This means that the order on the program was not the right one in some cases.

I don't have pictures of the led horses nor the heralds. If anyone has something it'll be appreciated

Gwalior was one of teh states with more elephants. This meant that it was one of the wealthiest and more important states.

Next, Indore. Stay tuned.
