India has been a long struggle, and we are all celebrating independence because of Azad’s selfless sacrifice and willful commitment, who liberated India and was our greatest freedom fighter. British rule in India began in 1757 when the English East India Company began exercising its control over the subcontinent.
The British Parliament passed the Indian Independence Act 1947, which gave our country the power to legislate. Our main goal is to educate the younger generation on the pride and courage of the great freedom fighters against colonial rule in observing Independence Day.
India is preparing to celebrate its 75th independence day on August 15, 2021. Independence Day marks the day India was liberated from oppressive British rule and is a glorious reminder of the countless sacrifices made by our freedom fighters.
On this day, government and people honor the sacrifices made by India’s freedom fighters to liberate India from colonial rule by raising the national flag and singing the national anthem.
