“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.”
