Today is the 65th anniversary of the day back in 1947 that Britain, represented by Lord Mountbatten, and the Indian leaders agreed to transfer power and declared India a sovereign independent country. Starting with the freedom struggle that began with the First War of Independence in 1857 and Gandhi’s freedom struggle in the 1920s and 1930s followed by Gandhi’s Quit India movement, Britain realized Indian independence was only a matter of time.
Happy birthday, India!
