On August 15, 1947, India got its freedom from the British colonial power. Our freedom fighters had to fight and undergo severe pain to seize freedom from the British Empire. So, it’s the most important day for Indians to celebrate our independence and commemorate the Indian freedom fighters. We will be celebrating 73 years of independence this year.
