INDEPENDENCE DAY - HISTORY, FACTS AND SIGNIFICANCE

A Historical Overview

India’s Independence Day marks the end of British colonial rule in 1947, following a relentless freedom movement spearheaded by Mahatma Gandhi. His principle of nonviolent resistance galvanized the nation, inspiring countless individuals to join the struggle. On August 15, 1947, Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first Prime Minister, hoisted the national flag above the Lahori Gate of the Red Fort in Delhi, symbolizing the birth of a free nation. This day is a tribute to the numerous freedom fighters, including Bhagat Singh and others, who sacrificed their lives for India’s independence.
