The struggle for India’s Independence spanned over 100 years from the first war of independence in 1857 to finally achieving it in 1947. In that sense, it was a historic occasion, not only for India but for the world.
India was the largest colony of the Britishers in the east and they were not ready to part with it, but the world was divided during the mid 20th century. It was a dramatic time for global order.
With western powers reeling under the trauma of the second world war, the colonies put forth an added expenditure. And the white masters deemed it best to let go of their sense of white man’s burden and thus the jewel in the crown of the British Empire was lost and India gained sovereignity.
They began a new chapter of two independent dominions with celebrations in oriental pomp and splendor- marred by bloodshed, death and terror in wide sections of the country wrote The Washington Post on India’s Independence on 15th August 1947.
This is an apt description of the surge of mixed feelings and a range of moods shared by the people of the subcontinent during that time. On one hand Independence day wishes were pouring in from all over the world, the tricolor was being hoisted at the Red Fort by Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru where he delivered his famous Tryst with destiny speech, there was a certain mood of jubilation and elation; while on the other Punjab and Bengal was burning with hatred and bloodshed of partition.
Fast forward 75 years, that very same infant country has become one of the ace runners in every field. India has emerged as one of the fastest developing economies of the world. It has emerged as the global pool of fresh talent. It has emerged as a powerful nation revered by the world.
In this article, we are going to familiarize ourselves with 75 Independence day quotes and wishes. Let’s dive right into it.
