Wait For The Rope Trick - Shankar, India, 1942.

Sir Stafford Cripps arrived in India in March 1942 bringing a package proposal from Churchill which was designed to "promote the concentration of all Indian thought and energies against Japan." He held talks with the leaders of all parties in his 17-day stay in Delhi. The proposals were for the future to be implemented after the war was over. Gandhi described the offer as a "post dated cheque" and asked Cripps: "Why did you come if this is what you have to offer? I would advise you to take the first plane home." Gandhi is seen watching Cripps trying to perform the rope trick with his proposals.
