Happy Independence Day: After years of British rule, India finally gained its hard-fought independence on August 15, 1947. “At midnight, when the world is asleep, India will wake up alive and free,” Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Independent Prime Minister India said on the night of August 15, 1947. Later, in commemoration of the event, the Indian national flag was hoisted over the Lahori Gate at Red Fort in Delhi, an act that was repeated. As India celebrates its 74th anniversary of independence this year, let’s take a look at the history of this day.

On the eve of Independence Day, the President of India addresses the nation by delivering a "State of the Nation Address". And the next day on August 15, the current Prime Minister holds the Indian flag at Red Fort, Delhi. The Prime Minister in his address highlighted important events of the past year and plans for the coming year. He pays tribute to leaders who lost their lives during the Indian Independence Movement. The event follows the national anthem “Jana Gana Mana”, the Indian Armed Forces and the parliamentary forces that continued the event with their previous march.

Independence Day - August 15, 1947

On 15 August 1947, India achieved a victory from the United Kingdom and since then this day is celebrated as India's Independence Day across the country. In 1947, the UK Parliament passed the Indian Independence Day Act 1947 and delegated legislative power to the Indian Constituent Assembly.

The first Prime Minister of a free India was Jawaharlal Nehru. He hoisted the Indian national flag above the Lahori Gate, at Red Fort in Delhi. Every year at Red Fort the incumbent Prime Minister raises a flag and speaks to the public. The day is considered Independence Day throughout India. Flag-raising ceremonies, exhibitions, and cultural events are held in many places in various parts of the country. This day celebrates a public holiday for all.
