August 15 is so far celebrated as India’s Independence day. But it is to be noted, India got its independence on august 14 itself. !!!

Indian National Congress wanted India to get its independence on January 30. But Lord Mountbatten refused to that offer. And the astrologers also announced august 15 was an inauspicious day. So, in a hurry, they gave independence in August 14 at 11.00 PM starting with the song “Vande mataram” and a two minute silence for those who lost their lives in the freedom struggle and represented the national flag on behalf of the women of India.

So, let us start our celebration tonight (august 14)…

Loving,

Lesley.
