Preface
The history of India’s struggle for freedom makes an inspiring and thrilling saga. Here is a story of indomitable courage and sacrifice of an ancient people ceaselessly fighting for their freedom. The Lahore Session of the Indian National Congress held under the Presidentship of Shri Jawaharlal Nehru, declared complete Independence or Purna Swarajya as the goal of national endeavour. The Pledge of Independence adopted on the midnight of December 31, 1929 on the banks of the river Ravi was taken by millions of men all over the country on January 26, 1930 and repeated thereafter on this day each year till Independence was finally achieved with the transfer. of power on August 15, 1947.

In his famous midnight speech in the Constituent Assembly on August 14-15, Shri Nehru referred to this Pledge of Independence as a "Tryst with Destiny" made "long years : ago". The generations bom and brought up in independent India would perhaps hardly be able to visualise what it meant to live in slavery and what privations and humiliations earlier generations passed through. Few young men and women — boys and girls — living in free India and enjoying the fruits of freedom and democracy would today be able to realise that not long ago there was a time in India’s history when wearing Khadi clothes or putting on a white Gandhi-cap wasconsidered’ outright seditious and a symbol and signal of open revolt. Refusal to take off the Gandhi-cap was enough of a | - justification for the police to shower lathi-blows. In big cities all over the country there were exclusive clubs where "Indians and dogs" were not allowed to enter. Irrespective of the tickets held by them, Indians could not enter a railway compartment in which any seat was occupied by a whiteman.

The new — generations used to seven freedoms guaranteed under the Constitution of India could hardly appreciate how mere utterance of ‘Vande Mataram’ (Salute to the Mother) could land thousands of unarmed patriots in jails and how despite the police lathis and bullets, the peaceful non-violent satyagrahis with the national tri-colour in hand and the slogan ‘Ingilab Zindabad’ (Long Live the Revolution) on their lips used to march on to defy the lawless laws and challenge the armed mite of the British Empire. Before a flag-bearcr would fall he would pass on the flag to, other hands and so long as a single satyagrahi remained iree or alive, the flag was not allowed to be lowered.

The struggle was long. The journey was arduous. Many fell on the way. The survivors — their hearts heavy with the memories of the lost comrades — nevertheless continued the — pilgrimage to the pledged goal of freedom. Many youthful revolutionaries faced the gallows and sacrificed their all so. that the succeeding generations of Indians may be saved the scourage of bondage and may breathe the air of freedom. The blood of martyrs, it is said, is never shed in vain. It. has the seeds of revolution. For those who fight for freedom, defeat is unknown. In the words of Byron.

The sacrifices of patriots bore fruits. On August 15, 1947 _ India became free and joined the comity of independent nations. Dreams dreamt for centuries came true. The people became masters of their destiny and acquired the right to frame their future in accordance with their own cherished goals and aspirations.

Today breathing in independent India and enjoying the fruits of freedom, "We, the People of India", should remember with gratitude those soldiers and martyrs — the sepoys, satyagrahis and revolutionaries — of our freedom struggle and pay our respectful homage to the countless men and women, known and unknown, sung and unsung, who passed through many travails and tribulations and made the dawn possible. Let the new generations and the generations yet unborn never forget that the edifice of freedom is a valued heritage which was built~brick by brick by their ancestors with their toil, sacrifice and blood. We should also remember that August 15, 1947 was not the journey’s end. As India woke to freedom on August 14-15, 1947 midnight, Nehru had warned the -people that freedom and power bring responsibility and that the future was "not one of ease or resting but one of incessant striving". On a resolution — moved by Shri Nehru: himself, the harbingers of the Indian revolution and the framers of her Constitution, therefore, took another pledge — the Pledge of Dedication to the service of — India and her people. Service of India, in the words of Shri Nehru, meant "the service of the millions who suffer’. Shri Nehru reminded the nation: The Pledge of Independence or Purna Swarajya (1929-30) had stressed the "inalienable right of the Indian people, as of any other people, to have freedom and to enjoy fruits of their toil and have the necessities of life, so that they may have full opportunities of growth." The Pledge of Dedication to the service of India and her people (1947) had meant for Shri Nehru "the ending of poverty and ignorance and disease and inequality of opportunity". The dream of the Father of the Nation. was for a total revolution — social, economic, political and spiritual. The pledges remained unredeemed, dreams unrealized and the revolution unfinished. India’s struggle for freedom was not merely for political independence, it was essentially for freedom from want and hunger, from poverty and squalor, from exploitation and discrimination. And, in this pilgrimage to freedom, there were _ still "many miles to go, many promises to keep." , But, there is no cause for despair. The leadership is conscious of the task to be done. The nation is on the move. The people are wide awake. We are moving ahead.
