MOTILAL NEHRU

The War Trumpets Sound in Old Age

The National Congress declared on 31 St. December 1929 that India should aim at
complete Independence. The flag of freedom was hoisted. Everybody clearly knew that the path of Mahatma Gandhi led to prison, to suffering and to poverty. Motilal was then sixty-nine. Many of his friends advised him not to jump into the fire of the freedom struggle. Motilal wrote to a friend as follows: "Believe me, I know quite well what will happen to me and my family if we join Gandhiji and plunge into the freedom struggle. I know that in this old age, with all my responsibilities and physical weakness, I am taking a big risk so daringly. Why then, do I do it? There is only one reason. It is my strong conviction that the time has come for determined efforts and the greatest sacrifice. I hear the war trumpets of my country, and I am responding to that call."
