-Fine. Give me the file.

Sir, may I go with you?


Dont worry. I will handle this.

Sit over there.

You have no idea how useful

this nuclear plan is for our country.

Mr. Yadav has come up

with a brilliant idea.

Once we conduct this test,

our Chinese neighbors will know.

Don't chant peace and cower in fear.

Take action and profess peace.

That's great, sir.

Last morning,

American satellites got wind

of India's nuclear test.

After a strict warning

from President Clinton

the nuclear project

has been halted.

America has warned India

of military action at their nuclear sites

if they dont stop immediately.

Pakistan has also raised

strong objections in this matter.

Let me make it clear, we were

conducting routine checks in Pokhran

and not preparing for any tests.

This is a case of misunderstanding.

We will soon find out

who is behind this hullabaloo.

I have nothing to do with

the execution of this mission.

Mr. Yadav, you didnt even

let me meet the Prime Minister.

Arent you glad I didnt?

Your plan was terribly flawed.

You were so sure of it at the time.

Look what happened!

You embarrassed our country

in front of the whole world.

Did anyone even pay

attention to my plan?

You cannot summarize

so much information

on such a huge project,

in two pages.

The mission was completed without me.

Now that it has failed,

I am being held responsible.

Since you knew all this,

why didnt you give us the full details?

Sir, I gave you the floppy disk.

It's still lying around.

Had you seen it...

You are suspended

with immediate effect.

I havent even woken up

Why is it dawn already?

Before I could even begin

It's all over

My coveted dream

Is now lost forever

Ashwat should've appealed against

his suspension order.

I gave you Mr. Sharma's number, Sushma.
