In such a situation, this day is very important for every Indian. People remember the wonderful sacrifices and sacrifices made by the fighters on Independence Day.
The freedom from British slavery was no less than a challenge for India, but the country became independent with the tireless efforts and determination of the Indians. Full legislative powers were conferred on the Legislative Assembly of India on 15th August 1947. The freedom fighters left the country for new generations without taking care of themselves and their families.

The British are said to have sent Lord Mountbatten to India as viceroy. He had received an order from the British Parliament to announce the transfer of power to India on June 30, 1948. However, India’s last Governor-General C Rajagopal later pressured Mountbatten to declare India’s independence on August 15, 1947.
