While The World Sleeps

A short film by Rishi Kaneria.
Narration I: Nehru’s speech on the eve of India’s Independence.
Narration II: Nehru’s speech on Gandhi’s death.

A Tryst With Destiny:
“Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny, and now the time comes when we shall redeem our pledge, not wholly or in full measure, but very substantially. At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance. It is fitting that at this solemn moment, we take the pledge of dedication to the service of India and her people and to the still larger cause of humanity.”
