Congress & The Freedom Movement Part 1

Its Genesis
THE 1857 revolt was suppressed. The British Empire in India was saved, Queen Victoria was proclaimed Empress of India and the new policy was ushered in. It was even more reactionary and in the long run proved very harmful. The native princes were now to be used as British tools and propped as bulwark against forces of resistance and progress. Government was no longer to encourage social reform. The benign rule was thus to carefully preserve decaying aristocracies, supersti…

The National Flag

The National Flag
"A flag is a necessity for all nations. Millions have died for it. It is no doubt a kind of idolatry which ,t would bea sin to destroy. For, a flag represents an IdeaL The unfurling of the Union Jack evokes in the English breast sentlments whose strength it is difficult to measure. The Stars and Stripes mean a world to the Americans. The Star and the Crescent will call forth the best bravery in Islam."

“It will be necessary for us Indians Muslims, Christians Jews, Parsis, and all others to whom Indta is their home—to recognize a common flag to live and to die for."


The evolution of the Indian National Flag reflects the political developments in the country during the 20th century. The various political trends, communal tensions, waves of enthusiasm can all be seen in the people’s attitude to the flag.

Gandhian March to Portals of Freedom

There are certain pages in the histories of nations which are referred to by later generations with pride and reverence. Our age is one such which will be remembered as the era of the resurrection of our nation, when our country passed from a state of subjection to a foreign power to one of freedom. This great transition is consummated by the consecrated will of the people and their determined non-violent resistance to the greatest imperialist power. This emergence of our nation is achieved without a long drawn out armed conflict with its aftermath of hatred, bitterness and decline in moral standards. We owed this in the main to Mahatma Gandhi who vitalized the country, awakened its will, roused its energies and inspired its political thinking with a new ethical passion. A Saint and a Revolutionary In his book on “The Yogi and the Commissar” Arthur Koestler observed that the future of European civilization depended on …

Role of Press in India's Struggle for Freedom At the time of the first war of independence, any number of papers were in operation in the country. Many of these like Bangadoot of Ram Mohan Roy, Rastiguftar of Dadabhai Naoroji and Gyaneneshun advocated social reforms and thus helped arouse national awakening. At was in 1857 itself that Payam-e-Azadi started publication in Hindi and Urdu, calling upon the people to fight against the British. The paper was soon confiscated and anyone found with a copy of the paper was persecuted for sedition. Again, the first Hindi daily, Samachar Sudhavarashan, and two newspapers in Urdu and Persian respectively, Doorbeen  and Sultan-ul-Akhar, faced trial in 1957 for having published a ‘Firman’ by Bahadur Shah Zafar, urging the people to drive the British out if India.

Some Prominent Martyrs of India's Freedom Struggle

Some Prominent Martyrs of India's Freedom Struggle The history of our freedom struggle is replete with acts of courage, sacrifice and dedication to the cause of freedom. The heroes of our freedom struggle came from every nook and corner of the country. They did not speak one language; they did not belong to one religion or one caste. An intense love for their country and a keen desire to see it free permeated all their existence. Some of them laid down their lives and immortalized themselves in the annals of our freedom struggle. It is difficult to enumerate the names of all these patriots as a number of them would always remain anonymous and their names will never find mention in the pages of history. In the three volumes of “Who’s who of Indian Martyrs’[ brought out by the Ministry of Education, list about 10,000 names of persons who were hanged or killed from 1857 to the emancipation of our country in 1947.
