Independence Day 2022 has desis taking swipes at their former rulers.

Indians are celebrating the country’s 76th Independence Day with fervour on Monday. The special day commemorates the birth of a free nation after the relentless efforts of freedom fighters and revolutionaries against the oppressive British rule. While August 15 falls on Monday this year, an added reason for the folks to rejoice who are currently enjoying a long weekend, the fact that the British have no Independence Day of their own and perhaps no “chutti” to mark it either was brought up on Twitter to mock the colonisers.

The result? Hilarious.

India’s freedom struggle against the British colonial rule was long-drawn spanning over 200 years and it was marked by many movements as well as armed revolutions.

In addition to the revolts of these freedom fighters, World War II tipped the odds in our favour by causing significant damage to the British forces, leaving them unable to rule over India.

Lord Mountbatten was eventually given power by the British Parliament to transfer power by June 30, 1948. However, observing the people’s impatience, Mountbatten realised that if he waited until June 1948, havoc will be created, which is why he advanced the process to August 1947.
