Independence Day marks the beginning of new phase where India got freedom from British Empire on 15th August, 1947. Indian National Congress led the Independence Movement which included non-violence and civil disobedience as their main principles. This was the day when partition took place and further the British Indian Empire was divided into Dominions of India and Pakistan. The entire partition of India and Pakistan was accompanied by blood sheds, violent riots where more than 15 million people lost their lives.
