A Volcano At Simla - As the result of the Volcano eruption at Simla the Wavell plan has been wiped out by its lava. 1945.

Jinnah, shown as an erupting volcano, blows the Wavell proposal to bits while the Viceroy and the other Indian leaders invited to the ill-fated Simla talks in June-July 1945 look on helplessly. But Jinnah's triumph in scuttling a settlement was shortlived. Labour was returned to power in Britain a fortnight after the conference adjourned. On August 21, an announcement from Simla said elections to the central and provincial legislatures would be held as early as possible and that the Viceroy was going to London for consultations on new constitutional steps in India.
