Stop Celebrating 15th August

Almost all Indian (excluding me) have a false notion about Freedom of India.

Our Nation did not got FULL independence at 15th August 1947.
Our history books do not list out British Emperors of India

Ok, During British Raj, India was a slave nation and following were the kings/Queens of India.

Here is the complete list -

Victoria - 1 May 1876  to 22 January 1901
Edward VII - 22 January 1901 to 6 May 1910
George V - 6 May 1910 to 20 January 1936
Edward VIII - 20 January 1936 to 11 December 1936
George VI - 11 December 1936 to 22 June 1948

Do you notice, George VI , He was the last British King of India till 22 June 1948.


 British rule in India ended on 15 August 1947, but George VI retained the title of King-Emperor until 22 June 1948, and thereafter remained monarch of India until India became a Republic on 26 January 1950. He continued as King of Pakistan until his death (6 February 1952).

So, technically, We must celebrate 26 January 1950 as Indian Freedom Day.
