On the mid night of 15th August 1947, Our Prime minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru announced the Independence of India by reading his speech on ” Tryst with destiny”. He said that after long years of slavery it is the time when we will redeem our pledge with the end of our fortune.
For getting the Independence there occurred two hundred long years of struggle done by great freedom fighters such as Gandhiji, Nehru, Potti Sriramulu and many other freedom fighters. Even women such as Aruna Asaf Ali, Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit, Sarojini Naidu, Nehru etc came out from their houses and played a great role in getting freedom.
