    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ 10: MR. NARAYAN: "There will certainly be people in the world to whom human beings and their aspirations are of far less importance than consequence than such things as the balance of power, the preservation of the stability, the territorial integrity of a nation. They will certainly do their best to impose their pattern of things up on the people of Bangla Desh. But those who have any experience or understanding of freedom struggles will know that all their efforts will be in vain and that the people of Bangla Desh will continue to fight for their freedom, with whatever means they can find and for as long as it may be necessary. A the famous (indistinct) East Bengalis are not fighting for democracy, or any ideology, but for very life."
