The Freedom Struggle of India went on for nearly 200 decades, and there have been many individuals, events, and circumstances which led India to reach its own Freedom.  The Indian Freedom movement deadline was quite lengthy, and our freedom fighters fought hard to make 15 August 1947 since the Indian Freedom Day.  Trimming the very long narrative to brief, we will let you know the significant events that resulted in India's Freedom in hardly any words.







The Start of British Control


With the fall of Mughal Empire, the East India company sneaked into the Indian politics, also once Tipu Sultan and Nawab of Bengal confronted their defeat, many areas were at the direct or indirect control of the EIC.



First Sign of Resistance

The Britishers saw the very first sign of resistance to their power when the mighty son of Tamil Nadu, Puli Thevar, opposed the Nawab of the Carnatic who was endorsed by the British. Puli led a group of poligars contrary to the Nawab when he attempted to extend his control (and the British management) in the Madurai area.


Revolt of 1857 and Additional Occasions


The revolution of 1857 was a major blow to the British government in India. Before the uprising, India was mostly under the control of either EIC or the British Raj itself. Following the revolt had happened, the East India Company was weakened in the North and the Centre. The British government had to take over these areas eventually, and it was seen as a defeat to the EIC. More rebels such as Mangal Pandey made it tough for the government to control India since the 29-year-old sepoy motivated other Indian troops to fight against the energy by murdering a higher ranked British officer from the army.





Rise of the Leaders

In the later part of this India's Independence Struggle, the nation saw the rise of various leaders in the state and the national level. These pioneers were of all sorts, the peace loving M.K. Gandhi, Jawahar Lal Nehru and the extremists like Chandra Shekhar Azad and Neta Subhash Chandra Bose.
These pioneers motivated the countrymen to unite and fight against the oppressive British government.

“At the stroke of midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes which comes but rarely in history when we step out from the old to the new, then an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance.” - Jawaharlal Nehru




The Later Movements

The Quit India movement by Gandhi was the last nail in the coffin for the Britishers, however, they were able to leave a scar on India together with the announcement of its own partition on 3 June 1947. On August 15, 1947, India attained its statehood and became a free country.  Nehru became the first Prime Minister of the nation and here's a famous quote from his address to the India's Independence Day.
