"At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom."
AUGUST 15, 1947; MIDNIGHT-"A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance."
THE INDEPENDENT SOVEREIGN INDIA IS BORN.
I pay my solemn homage to all those patriots who sacrificed their lives so that we could have the freedom that we are enjoying today.
JAI HIND !!
I dedicate this post to the great men and women who displayed the courage of standing up to the brutal repression and achieved solidarity in the face of the divisive power.
