 Jawahrlal Nehru’s address to the nation through radio:

  “Friends and comrades, the light has gone out of our lives, and there is darkness everywhere, and I do not quite know what to tell you or how to say it. Our beloved leader, Bapu as we called him, the father of the nation, is no more. Perhaps I am wrong to say that; nevertheless, we will not see him again, as we have seen him for these many years, we will not run to him for advice or seek solace from him, and that is a terrible blow, not only for me, but for millions and millions in this country.”

    binaben,
    Bapu was larger than life.he was a symbol of bold action. he was the “all time great statesman”. a bhishmapitamaha of modern age.
    this speech of jawaharlal nehru on 30th january,1948 made the whole nation cry.no wonder it makes us grieve even today.i was 5 years old when bapu was killed.i do recollect to have attended the prarthana sabha to offer our tribute to our beloved BAPU in Amareli.the whole audience was full of grief and pain.
    thanks binaben for reminding such an important event….
