Happy Independence Day - 2012, India!!!

The Independence Day of India is celebrated on August 15th to commemorate its independence from British rule and its birth as a sovereign nation on that day in 1947. On the stroke of midnight, a country came into life again as the British handed over the governance of India to the Indian leaders. The British government declared the country independent and left for their own shores.

It was on this historic date that Jawaharlal Nehru, the first prime Minister of India, unfurled the Indian tricolor on the ramparts the magnificent Red Fort, symbolically marking the end of the British colonial rule. This has become tradition where each and every Indian Prime Minister hoists the Indian Tricolor flag on the Red Fort on 15th August every year and delivers a nationally televised speech from its ramparts.

To our Indian patrons, best wishes on India's Independence Day from all of us @ FundooGeek.com
