A century ago, a young man set out on a train journey that ultimately gave birth to our nation. He was on a mission to understand India. Travelling through the diversity of the land, he was meeting the real India of small towns and villages. He understood that this is where he will discover the seeds of renewal and freedom. As he travelled he engaged in a dialogue with the co-travellers and others at various destinations. The journey brought him closer to his country, its people, and their challenges. Transformed, he was equipped to unleash one of the biggest freedom movements of the 20th century that led to the creation of the largest democracy in the world.
