“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.”

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
