A little history behind Independence:
The fight for independence was never easy, many freedom fighters sacrificed their lives, suffered unbearable outrage. Starting from 1857 to 1947, Mangal Pandey, an Indian soldier in British force first raised his voice against British. We can’t forget about great fighter LakshmiBai, Rani of Jhansi, who fought bravely against British using two swords in two hands tieing her son on her back. Bhagat Singh, Khudiram Bose have martyred their lives in young ages for independence. We still don’t know properly about Netaji’s death, his works make him our ideal. Gandhiji 1st started a non-violent rebellion. The famous song ‘Vande Mataram’ was written by famous writer Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay as a poem in his novel ‘Anandamath’. Sukhdev, Rajguru, Binay-Badal-Dinesh, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Lala Lajpat Rao, Rash Behari Bose, Chandra Sekhar Azad & more than thousand freedom fighters have fought for India's freedom.
After we got freedom, in these 70 years India developed in every matter on its own. Saluting those brave heart fighters & wishing coming future of India more bright we wish you all a very happy & auspicious 71st Independence day.
