Holding Up The Train - Shankar, India, 1946.

The Congress accepted Wavell's call for setting up an Interim Government immediately. The Muslim League rejected it. Nehru as Congress President wrote to Jinnah proposing a coalition Government. Jinnah at first rejected the offer, decided to boycott the Constituent Assembly and ordered his followers to observe Direct Action Day, which resulted in mass killings in Calcutta, Bombay and other centres. Gandhi appealed to Jinnah to alter his decision and get the League to join the Interim Government. Talks between Nehru and Jinnah began in October 1946. This is how Shankar views Jinnah's futile bid to hold back Indian independence.
