These include stories of struggle, stories of passion and stories of those whose spirit has taken this struggle to the point.

The area Hanuman Ganj is just 5 kilometers away from Ballia station, this area got this name because of the famous building Hanumanganj Kothi here.

The year was 1942. August was a rainy month, but that year the country was not getting wet, but was smoldering. On 8 August 1942, the slogan of Quit India was given, which resonated across the country. On August 9, a large number of arrests were being made across the country, but in the midst of this turmoil, Ballia district of Uttar Pradesh was making its own preparations.

The British arrested many revolutionary leaders Gandhi-Nehru. Ballia also rose in protest against this, and it arose that in history Ballia got its world famous name, the rebel Ballia. The person who gave this identity to Ballia, this battle of independence is called Chittu Pandey.

This story is recorded in golden letters in the pages of history that Ballia became independent on 19 August 1942. This independence lasted for three days and on 22 August, the British took it again by conspiracy.

If we go back a bit in the shadow of dates, the name of Sultanpur, a district of UP, is also included in this list. This is from the period of 1857, when Sultanpur district threw down the Union Jack and hoisted the Indian flag there. The interesting thing is also that this district remained independent for almost a year, not for one or two or three days.

It so happened that in 1857, when Mangal Pandey blew the trumpet of revolution in Meerut, its spark flared up in Sultanpur as well. In May-June, the trumpet of independence against the Firangis sounded in such a way that many British soldiers including the head of the British army, Colonel Fish, Officer Doyam, Captain Givings were put to death by the soldiers and the district became independent.

The sehra of this freedom was tied on the head of Mehdi Hassan, the Nazim of Awadh. After independence, he was made the ruler and Hasanpur as the headquarters. This wind of independence flowed for a year and by October 1858, Sultanpur was again under British rule.

Union Jack was also removed from Aaha district.

Talking about the period of 1857, then remember Veer Kunar Singh and district Ara of Bihar. In 1857, when the fire broke out in Meerut, Kanpur, Lucknow, Allahabad, Jhansi and Delhi also, Maharaja Veer Kunar Singh of Jagdishpur princely state was also single-handedly chewing gram to the British.

At the age of 80, Veer Kunwar Singh along with his general Maiku Singh led this fight for independence. He was moving forward while fighting and was laying the heads of British soldiers on the way.

On April 27, 1857, along with the soldiers of Danapur and other comrades, he captured Ara. The Union Jack was removed from here and then the flag of the princely state of Jagdishpur was hoisted here. The rebellion was not over yet. When Ara was captured here, the British government attacked Jagdishpur.

Therefore, Ara was liberated in a way but soon came under the possession of the British. History says that when the British were shot in the arm of Veer Kunar Singh, he immediately cut off his arm and threw it into the Ganges.

Hisar, which remained independent for 73 days.

May 29, 1857 cannot be forgotten in the list of dates. This day is recorded in the name of Hisar district of Haryana, which was breathing in the open air of independence on this date. On May 29, 1857, the flag of independence was hoisted at Nagori Gate after the revolutionaries killed many Britishers including Deputy Collector William Wedderburn.

This rebellion was not a political or soldier rebellion, but it was the anger of the people that was growing in them for many years. The ordinary people of Hisar and surrounding villages clashed with the British with full force.

On 29 May, the trumpet of rebellion against the British rule under the leadership of Mohammad Azim rang. A squad of horsemen in black uniform entered from Delhi side. First, the treasure was looted in the old court. Then District Collector Wedderburn and his family members were murdered. After the murder of the collector, the English army could not compete much.

Soon Hisar became independent from the British rule. Maulvi Rukumuddin and Shahbaz Baig visited the entire city on two days of 30 May. As a celebration of victory, a grand feast was held at the residence of Maulvi Rukumuddin in Hisar on the night and this mood of happiness lasted for 73 days. Eventually the British adopted a repression policy. 600 revolutionaries of the village were martyred in the rebellion and seven employees were hanged on the charges of rebellion.

Today, the page of the calendar that is in front of us is telling that we are entering the 75th year of independence. The country is celebrating the nectar festival of freedom at this time. But the nectar of freedom that we have got to taste, behind it is the hand of many such martyrs, the bravery of many battlefields. Which should not be forgotten.

Independence day: Why the day of 15th August was chosen for the independence of India, know the story behind it.

India became independent from the British on 15 August 1947, after 200 years of British rule, when India became independent, it was divided into two pieces. First- India, where Independence Day is celebrated on 15th August. Second- Pakistan, which has been celebrating its independence day only on 14th August. The country was partitioned at the time of independence but the border between India and Pakistan was not fixed till 15 August 1947. This was decided on 17 August 1947 with the announcement of the Radcliffe Line. Which determined the boundary between India and Pakistan.

But patriotic Indians celebrated their first ‘Independence Day’ 17 years before that. That ‘Independence Day’ was celebrated on 26 January 1930. Its main objective was that the nationalist sentiment should be infused among the countrymen and the British government should take the demand for independence seriously.

In one of his articles in ‘Young India’, Mahatma Gandhi had given some suggestions regarding how to celebrate this special day. Gandhiji had said that ‘It would be better if the declaration of independence should be made in all the villages and all the cities simultaneously. It would be even better if meetings in this context are held at the same time at all places. 

Ramachandra Guha writes in his book ‘India After Gandhi’ that Gandhi had advised that the timing of these meetings should be traditionally promoted by drumming, the celebrations should begin with the unfurling of the national flag, the rest of the day was constructive. Be spent doing works, whether it is cutting the spinning wheel, serving the ‘untouchables’, union of Hindus and Muslims or refusing to do any work. He asked the participants to take an oath that a resolution declaring the last Sunday of January 1930 as the ‘Day of Independence’ was passed in Lahore, where the Congress was holding its annual session. 

Regarding this day, Nehru wrote in his autobiography, “Large crowds of people everywhere were taking the oath of independence peacefully and solemnly without any sound or noise. That scene was very impressive and there was definitely something special in it.

15 august day chosen for independence.

Every year since 1930, Indians with Congress mindset started celebrating 26 January as ‘Independence Day’. However, in the year 1947, when India decided to get independence, the British fixed August 15 as the day of transfer of power. 

Ramachandra Guha has written that this day was chosen by the Viceroy Lord Mountbatten because it was the second anniversary of the surrender of the Japanese army to the Allies in the Second World War.

At the same time, an article in the English newspaper The Indian Express has been written, Lord Mountbatten was mandated by the British Parliament to transfer power by June 30, 1948. Had he waited till June 1948, there would have been no power left to transfer, in the words of C Rajagopalachari.

Finally, let’s talk about what was the difference between people’s behavior at first symbolic freedom and real freedom. Regarding this, Guha wrote that when ‘Independence Day’ was celebrated for the first time on 26 January 1930, people were ‘formally disciplined’ (as Nehru himself experienced), but when the actual day of independence came in 1947, People naturally jumped with joy.
