It’s a known fact that India celebrates its independence day on August 15. But do we all know the history and significance behind the date? In 1600, in the name of trading tea, cotton, and silk, East India Company had penetrated into India. As they found Indians easy to divide and exploit, they started to expand, and slowly took over the ruling of the nation, and ultimately India went under the control of England.


After that, there were numerous battles, protests, and after years of peaceful and violent struggles and sacrifices by many Indians, the nation achieved its independence. India's Independence Day was selected by India's first governor general and last viceroy, Lord Mountbatten. In 1945 August 15, Japan had surrendered to allied forces, and in remembrance of the same, Mountbatten had chosen August 15 as the Independence Day of our country.


Though there were many who fought for the independence and participated in the freedom struggle, the most important among them happens to be Mahatma Gandhi, who had wanted to dissolve Congress party after independence. However, his wish of dissolving the party whose actual aim was to achieve freedom was never fulfilled, as the party still exists.
