August 15, 1947

The Indian freedom struggle is the most wonderful of all struggles that any nation has waged for freedom. Millions of people joined this one, led my Mahatma Gandhi. His war, the weapons of which were non-violence and tolerance, something unheard of in the history of freedom struggles, inspired enslaved people all over the world, and led them to get out of their shackles.

The story of India’s National Struggle for its freedom is the story of Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and countless other leaders, and story of many political organizations like the Indian National Congress and the story of several kinds of struggles. It is like a great river joined by myriad tributaries and sub-streams. 

India became an independent nation on August 15, 1947. It was indeed a historic moment that influenced the flow of history ever since.
