Long Years Ago

Long Years Ago
We Made A Tryst With Destiny
Now The Time Comes
When We Will 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
When The Soul Of A Nation
Long Suppressed
Finds Utterance ….
We End Today A Period Of Ill Fortune
And India Discovers Herself Again
Happy Independence Day
