Google celebrates India's "Tryst with Destiny" with a doodle to mark India's Independence Day
The internet search engine giant Google too celebrated the 70th Independence Day of India with a doodle on its home page depicting the scene in nation's Parliament of the famous and historic midnight speech "Tryst with Destiny" delivered by the first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru.

The doodle shows Nehru making his speech in the Parliament House before the Indian Constituent Assembly which is also termed as the first voice of independent India and below the doodle the year 1947 is written.

The famous words in the  in the opening passage of the speech  were as follows and are often quoted widely: "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 midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom."

"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," he continued.

Concluding his speech with Jai Hind, Nehru had said, "We have hard work ahead. There is no resting for any one of us till we redeem our pledge in full, till we make all the people of India what destiny intended them to be...All of us, to whatever religion we may belong, are equally the children of India with equal rights, privileges and obligations. And to India, our much-loved motherland, the ancient, the eternal and the ever-new, we pay our reverent homage and we bind ourselves afresh to her service."
