Being an Indian, and given the long history of the country, I think the most important historical event would definitely be Independence from the colonisers. India is well known for its rich culture, and diversity. India is really a melting pot of cultures, each region having their own practices and customs and celebrations as well. This inherent diversity prevailed centuries ago, well before the colonisers or even the mughals. Throughout the history of the world, India made its mark on the map, being an important part of trade routes and supplying exotic spices and crops but that changed when the British arrived in India with an intent of colonising our native land. After nearly two centuries of struggle, India finally gained Independence from the British in 1947. By then, the British had already made their impact on India. The most important people who were involved were the freedom fighters and leaders who took it upon them to motivate the nation and lead us to independence. The most prominent leaders of the movement were Jawaharlal Nehru, Mahatma Gandhi, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Bhagat Singh, Sarojini Naidu and Subash Chandra Bose. They were the leaders that moved millions to the fruition of freedom and they were the ones who struggled alongside the citizens for the movement. Some of them even shed their blood, sweat and tears for the purpose. Today, we owe it all to them and the sacrifices they made. India’s history and culture is only enriched and strengthened due to the resilience they exhibited at the time. Now, we wear it as a badge of honour, to pay our respects to this monumental event in the history of our country.
