The struggle for Indias Independence began in 1857 with the Sepoy Mutiny in Meerut. Later, in the 20th century, the Indian National Congress and other political organizations, under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi, launched a countrywide independence movement. Colonial powers were transferred to India on August 15, 1947.The Constituent Assembly, to who power was to be transferred, met to celebrate Indias independence at 11pm on August 14, 1947. India gained its liberty and became a free country at midnight between August 14 and August 15, 1947. It was then that the free Indias first prime minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru gave his famous Tryst with Destiny speech. People across India are reminded of the meaning of this event that it marked the start of a new era of deliverance from the British colonialism that took place in India for more than 200 years.
