Before going into the more fashionable part of the Independence day, let us first take a look at some facts about this day we weren’t knowing about!
We had no anthem, really, no kidding!
In 1947, when India became an independent country, it had no National Anthem. The rendition of our current anthem was into existence, but was not yet (back then) considered as the national anthem until later in 1950.
Who chose this day as the day it is known by?
Most of us do not know this but it was Lord Mountbatten who chose this date for the Indian independence day because 15th August was the same day the Japanese had surrendered to the allied forces.
We’re not the only ones!
India shares its Independence Day with North Korea, South Korea, Bahrain and the Republic of Congo. Pakistan is also close, celebrating it’s Independence day on the 14th of August!
Go, Goa, Gone!
Post Indian Independence, the Portugese amended their constitution whereafter they declared Goa as a state of Portugal, only for the Indians to invade it later and annex it to India!
Oh yes this did happen, Gandhiji asked for Congress dissolution!
Immediately after India’s independence, Gandhiji spoke of his wish for the INC to be disbanded. On the eve of his assassination, this was the resolution passed by Bapu, saying “India having attained political independence through means devised by the INC, the Congress in its present shape and form, i.e., as a propaganda vehicle and parliamentary machine had outlived its use.”
