This has been a heist at the least, it's been a month of prepping and pulling this off and everyone involved has been a blessing.. Here's a short of mine, a take on independence day. Watch and share the love people ! Producer/writer: Priyanka Kashikar Director/story : Tom Koshy D.O.P : Himanshu Dubey Actor : Pooja Bhamrah Edit/grade: Jason John Music : Anjo John Sound fx: Shantanu Trivedi Co-producer - Pratik More Line producer - Mitesh A.D: Rishikesh Sonawane Costume: Rutu Desai Mukherjee 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. At the dawn of history India started on her unending quest, and trackless centuries are filled with her striving and the grandeur of her success and her failures. Through good and ill fortune alike she has never lost sight of that quest or forgotten the ideals which gave her strength. We end today a period of ill fortune and India discovers herself again. The achievement we celebrate today is but a step, an opening 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? - excerpt from 'tryst with destiny' speech by Jawaharlal Nehru. 08-15-1947 #independenceday #freedom #metoo #celebratenothing
