The tricolor hosted on 15th August 1947 symbolized the nation’s liberty and gave birth to a multiracial, multilingual India. The partition resulted in a large population of displaced persons as they moved across new borders leaving their homes behind. Independence had a deep impact on the minds of people like Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, Ritwik Ghatak, Govind Nihalani, Captain Lakshmi Swaminathan or Harprasad Nanda, who were to shape the future of India. The assassination of Gandhi and other traumas dogged the birth of this nation. But leaders of high caliber taught the nation self-reliance. The film shows how India still has a long way to go to keep its promises to its citizens. It is still a nation in the making.
