“Many years ago, we met with destiny, and now the moment comes when we will redeem our promise, not in its entirety or in its entirety, but in a very substantial way. When midnight comes, when the world sleeps, India will fall asleep. it will awaken to life and liberty. There comes a time, rarely in history, when we move from the old to the new, when an era ends and when the soul of a nation, long repressed, finds expression. We end today is a period of bad luck, and India is discovered again.” -Nehru (Speech on India’s Independence Day Celebrations, August 15, 1947)”.
