Nehru's thought on A Tryst with Destiny | Nitishsay

A Tryst with Destiny Nehru

Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru was born in Allahabad in 1889. He was educated at harrow and at Cambridge University. he was soon drawn into the vortex of Indian politics, and he emerged as the leader of the country's youth. He was deeply influenced by Mahatma Gandhi during this 1947, he became the first prime minister of India and remained so for almost 17 years till his death in 1964. He was a dreamer, an ideal list, humanist and an artist with words and not a mere politician. his writings and speeches merge with his life and his life merges with the life of nation. His elegant poetical prose is best captured in letters from a father to his daughter, his autobiography, the discovery of India, glimpses of world history and in his extempore speeches. 

The speech, "A tryst with destiny" was delivered by pandit nehru on the eve of India's Independence on 14 August 1947. In this speech, he remembers the past and suggest ways to build the future. He ask the nation to serve not only India but also all humanity.

Long year ago we made that 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 midnight hours, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom.

Ham movement 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 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.

At the down of history, India started on her unending quest, and trackless centuries are filled with the striving and the Grandeur of her success and failures. through good and ill Fortune alike,  she has never lost sight of that quest for forgotten the ideas which we gave her strength. We end today a period of misfortunes and India discoveries herself again. the achievement we celebrate today is but a step, and opening up of opportunity to the greater triumphs and achievements that await us. Are we brave enough and wise enough to grasp this opportunity and accept the challenge of the future?

Freedom and power bring responsibility. The responsibility rests upon this assembly, a sovereign body representing the sovereign people of India.before the birth of freedom, we have endured all the pains of labour and our hats habits with the memory of the sorrow. Some of those pains continue even now. Nevertheless, the past is over and it is the future that backs us now. 

The future is not one of ease resting but of incessant striving so that we may fulfill the pledges we have so often taken and the one we shall take today. The service of India means the service of the millions who means the ending of poverty and ignorance, and poverty and disease, and inequality of opportunity. the ambition of the greatest man of power generation has been to Whip every tear from every eye. that may be beyond us, but as long as there are tears and suffering, so long our work will not be over.

And so we have to labour and to work, and to work hard, to give reality to our dreams. those dream are for India, but they are also for the world, for all the nation and people are too closely knit together today for any one of them to imagine that it can live apart. peace is said to be individual, so is freedom, so is prosperity now, and also is disaster in this one world that can no longer be split into isolated fragments.

To the people of India whose representatives we are, We make appeal to join us with faith and confidence in this great adventure. This is no time for petty and destructive criticism, no time for ill will or blaming others. We have to build the noble mansion of free India where all her children may dwell.
