It is observed that the reason behind choosing 15th August as India’s Independence Day s not at all dramatic.
The historic date in India’s history is likely to be chosen by Lord Mountbatten.
In the book ‘Freedom at midnight’ written by Larry Collins and Domminique Lapierre, the former Governor General says, “The date I chose came out of the blue. I chose it in reply to a question. I was determined to show I was master of the whole event. When they asked had we set a date, I knew it had to be soon. I hadn’t worked it out exactly then — I thought it had to be about August or September and I then went out to the 15th August.”
