HISTORY OF INDEPENDENCE DAY OF INDIA:

The struggle for India's Independence began in 1857 with the “Sepoy Mutiny” in Meerut. Later, in the 20th century, under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi, the Indian National Congress and other political organizations launched a countrywide independence movement. Finally colonial powers were transferred to India on August 15, 1947.

The Constituent Assembly, to who the power was transferred, met to celebrate India's independence at 11pm on August 14, 1947. India gained its liberty and became a free country at midnight between August 14 and August 15, 1947. Then the India's first prime minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru gave his famous "Tryst with Destiny" speech. People across India are reminded of the meaning of this event - that it marked the start of a new era of deliverance from the British colonialism that took place in India for more than 200 years.
