Some personal reminiscences. Hostility to British rule. The question, and the speaker's response, with regard to the British Indian Empire coming to an end. The work of Great Britain becoming more majestic and more glorious as years roll by. India's contributions to the war. The economic cause of the unrest in India. The religious and political causes of the unrest. The new era in India and what it means politically. Moving towards complete responsible government. Great Britain's achievements in India. Words on the Empire. What the King represents and symbolizes. The need to renounce, in a manner, the world's high expectations with which the entrance into the world's great conflict was hailed by the peoples of the Empire. Trying to renew the youth of the world; trying to save society, divided against itself; trying to save the multitudes endangered by their ungovernable passions. The address concludes with a song.
