Prime Minister of India Speech on this 75th India Independence Day
WHY DO WE CELEBRATE INDEPENDENCE DAY IN INDIA?
- It’s the most important day in India’s long historyIndian Independence Day is the nation’s most beloved holiday because the Indian people liberated themselves from the British without having massive armies or a national treasury. It’s also incredible when you consider the length of British rule in India. During the 1700s, India’s colorful fabrics and aromatic spices lured British traders to the Indian subcontinent. After 100 years, the British East India Company had a firm grip on all aspects of India’s economy in a monopoly sanctioned by — and benefiting — the British government.
- Gandhi and the Indian National Congress led the liberation movements”An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind,” was a saying by one of India’s most famous leaders, Mahatma Gandhi. Trained as a lawyer, he was among the first to call for Indians to have self-determination for their country. Through his spiritual practice of “ahimsa,” meaning “doing no harm,” Gandhi raised non-violent resistance to a form of political action. Gandhi, Nehru, and other Indian leaders formed the Indian National Congress to strategize against British rule and to mobilize the masses in the struggle.
- Liberation created one of the world’s great nations After years of struggle and deprivation, the Indian people threw off the shackles of British domination. After WWII, thanks to the determination of Indian freedom fighters, on August 15, 1947, the British Parliament transferred legislative sovereignty to the Constituent Assembly of India with the Indian Independence Act.
