This day is celebrated as the Independence Day

15th August is celebrated as the Independence Day in India. It is also known as Martyr's Day, or Bhagat Singh's birth anniversary. This day marks the anniversary of India’s independence movement.

The British government announced that the rule of India would be transferred to a new British dominion called 'The Union of India' and it's constitution would come into force from 26th January, 1950.

The British government announced that the rule of India would be transferred to a new British dominion called 'The Union of India' and it's constitution would come into force from 26th January, 1950. The Union of India was a dominion of the Crown and not an independent state as it had been since 1858.

On this day, Jawaharlal Nehru became independent India's first Prime Minister.

On this day, Jawaharlal Nehru became independent India's first Prime Minister. He was born in Punjab on 14 November 1889 and studied at Harrow and Cambridge University. While studying at Cambridge University he joined Indian National Congress and became its president in 1928.

In 1930 he returned to India where he helped form a government that led up to independence from Britain in 1947. He was also made the first minister for external affairs by Gandhi who became prime minister of India after independence from Britain

The Constituent Assembly set about drafting a Constitution for Independent India.

The Constituent Assembly was the first Parliament of India and was responsible for drafting a Constitution for Independent India. The constitution came into force on 26th January 1950, after it was adopted by the Constituent Assembly (the parliament).

The Indian constitution contains several features which differ from those found in most other democracies:

  • There is no separation between executive power and legislative power; rather they are fused together under one office called Prime Minister. This means that whoever holds this post has executive powers as well as legislative ones. In other words he or she can enact laws without consulting anyone else about them before doing so - which may be seen as undemocratic in some countries but not here because we have lived with this system since 1947 when we became independent from colonial rule!

  • Elections must be held every five years at least unless there is an emergency situation requiring another vote earlier than five years later on request made by either house of parliament within 15 days after dissolution due to lack of majority support among members present

It took 2 years, 11 months and 18 days to complete the draft.

The constitution was adopted on January 26, 1950 and came into force on November 26, 1949. It took 2 years, 11 months and 18 days to complete the draft.

The Constitution defined India’s parliamentary democracy as well as its federal structure; it also laid down many rights for citizens like freedom of speech and expression, privacy etc., however there are certain limitations on these rights such as defamation laws or other criminal laws which may be used against people who commit offences against public order or morality (Articles 19A & 19B).

More than 450 members participated in the drafting process.

Indian freedom struggle is an interesting piece of history.

The Indian freedom struggle is an interesting piece of history. It was a long process and it took more than 200 years to achieve independence from the British rule. The British were in control of India for more than 200 years, but they had to leave after the First War of Independence or Opium War in 1839-1842 which was fought between China and England over opium trade issues.

The second war was fought after another one year later when Japan invaded Korea and annexed it as its colony under the name Tokyo-fu (Tokyo Province). Then Britain wanted to take advantage of this opportunity and attack China again but failed because Napoleon Bonaparte defeated them at Waterloo on June 18th 1815 making him king/emperor instead..
