Indian Independence Day, which is celebrated religiously throughout the country on August 15 of each year, occupies a tremendous place on the list of national days, as it reminds all Indians of the beginning of a new beginning, the beginning of an era of liberation from the grip of British colonialism for over 200 years. It was on August 15, 1947 when India was declared independent of British colonialism and the reins of control were handed over to the country’s leaders. The independence of India was a struggle with destiny, since the struggle for freedom was long and exhausting, and witnessed the sacrifices of many freedom fighters, who risked their lives.
India became independent on August 15, 1947. The Parliament of the United Kingdom passed the Indian Independence Act of 1947 which transfers legislative sovereignty to the Constituent Assembly of India and, on this day, the first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, raised the Indian national flag over the Lahori gate of the Red Fort in Delhi.

Mother kiss your feet, Sweet and low speaker! Mother, I bow down to you. ”- Bankim Chandra Chatterjee.
