Jawaharlal Nehru is often cited as saying that children should always be carefully and lovingly nurtured, as they are the future of the nation and the citizens of tomorrow. 'Tryst with Destiny' was a speech delivered by him in Parliament to the Constituent Assembly as India became independent at midnight as the day turned to 15 August, 1947. Here's a collection of rare pictures of the first prime minister.
