A very important date in the history of modern India where it dispelled the shackles of foreign rule to be it’s own master. It has been noticed in the human history that strong nations have been dominating the weaker nations and India’s independence was very much necessary as the English rule was exploiting the country, it’s people, the natural resources and destroying the inherent ancient values, human love and peaceful coexistence. They were bent upon destroying the native culture and in fact they not only governed the administration but they were making inroads into the psyche of Indian people. India under the British rule was losing it’s identity and national ego. Noted freedom fighter Bal Gangadhar Tilak explained to suffering Indians that ‘ Freedom is our birth right and we should not allow anyone to intrude upon our country and our minds. He questioned the presence of the British in India reminding them “India is not their business and they should leave the nation” under the able guidance of Gopal Krishna Gokhale, Mahatma Gandhi became the torch bearer of the India Independence movement and under his leadership the world witnessed unique movement of Independence completely based on non – violence and human love.
