Excerpt of Tryst With Black Money

Not long time, we made a tryst with black money, and now time comes when we shall redeem our pledge, not wholly or in full measure but very partially. (Kyunki 90% toh gold, shares aur property main phele hi converted hai)

And now at the stroke of midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to stand in ATM lines, only to find out later, that there is no cash left in the machine.

A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out to buy just a loaf of bread with only a single note Rs. 2000 in our pocket.

It is fitting that at this solemn moment, we take the pledge of dedication to the service of India and her government (tum kitne bade bhakt ho?) and totally disregard the suffering of our own children.

Real Speech (Tryst With Destiny by Jawaharlal Nehru)

Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny, and now that 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 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 with some pride.
