Independence Day

India proudly celebrates its Independence Day or 'Swantrata Divas' on August 15 every year. This is our humble attempt to honor this momentous event.

 

“Freedom is my birth right!”, proclaimed Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak. This is a simple but profound truth that is the basis for all human dignity. And Indians undertook an incredible journey just to get this birth right. Here is a quick re-cap of key highlights –

The First War of Indian Independence 1857 (Sepoy Mutiny)

The Non-Cooperation Movement 1920-22

Salt Satyagraha & Dandi March 1930

Quit India Movemnet 1942

Indian Independence 1947

 

Read about some amazing personalities who shaped the Indian struggle for freedom. They dedicated their lives and in many cases even embraced death for the cause. Our homage and respects to these great souls. Natamastak vandan!
