Sixty-two years ago today, the Constitution of an independent India took effect. For many years, the Indian National Congress, a main political party, championed the struggle to gain independence for India. On January 26, 1930, the Indian National Congress held a meeting in Mumbai (then called Bombay) and passed a momentous resolution challenging the British rule to give and declare the country as the independent Republic of India. India gained its independence on August 15, 1947. Happy Indian Republic Day!
