The Indian Freedom struggle started way back in 1857, which was brutually suppressed by the british. After many transformation India Finally gained Independence on 15th August, 1947. The rebirth of a Brilliant Nation.
The Revolt of 1857 is called "The First War Of Independece" by Indians, but was rediculed as "Sepoy Mutiny " by the British. Whatever the people call, it is the combined effort where people of all religions, regions were untied against a common enemy.The rebel proclamations in 1857 repeatedly appealed to all sections of the population, irrespective of their caste and creed. Many of the proclamations were issued by Muslim princes or in their names but even these took care to address the sentiments of Hindus. The rebellion was seen as a war in which both Hindus and Muslims had equally to lose or gain.
But the Revolt was so brutually oppressed that to regain the same level of uprising and combined taken many decades.
The national movement in the twentieth century drew
its inspiration from the events of 1857. A whole world
of nationalist imagination was woven around
"Civilizations have arisen in other parts of the world. In ancient and modern times, wonderful ideas have been carried forward from one race to another...But mark you, my friends, it has been always with the blast of war trumpets and the march of embattled cohorts. Each idea had to be soaked in a deluge of blood..... Each word of power had to be followed by the groans of millions, by the wails of orphans, by the tears of widows. This, many other nations have taught; but India for thousands of years peacefully existed. Here activity prevailed when even Greece did not exist... Even earlier, when history has no record, and tradition dares not peer into the gloom of that intense past, even from until now, ideas after ideas have marched out from her, but every word has been spoken with a blessing behind it and peace before it. We, of all nations of the world, have never been a conquering race, and that blessing is on our head, and therefore we live.... !---Swami Vivekananda, Great Indian Philosopher
