Danger Signal 1947.

As negotiations on the transfer of power continued through the early part of 1947, it became increasingly evident that partition of the country was seemingly inevitable. On May 6, in a last effort to change the course of history, Gandhi met Jinnah in New Delhi. The meeting was friendly, he said later, but Jinnah was "quite firm that the question of Pakistan was not open to discussion." Gandhi is shown here hoisting a danger signal to prevent India, a train, from derailing as the track points in divergent directions.
