My definition of independence is?


Journey of dependence to independence

Human life largely depends on basic needs. The needs are food, water, air, and shelter. Water and air remain the same for all, but food and shelter requirements differ from place to place and person to person. Human beings form a group of like-minded people that would like to be independent of people who have an unlike kind of dependence concerning food and shelter. The group may be Native Americans, British, Indians, etc.

History gives evidence that British people always enter a group under the pretext of business and ultimately end up ruling them. An Indian independence struggle has taken a long time to succeed unlike other revolutions like American Revolution. 

Disparate colony’s plantation owners and businessmen form a group to fight against Britain to gain independence. The patriot group is called the founding fathers. This group consisted of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, John Jay and James Madison. Our founding fathers or freedom fighters include Gandhi, Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, Tantia Tope, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Lala Lajpat Rai, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Rani Lakshmi Bai, Bhagat Singh, Lal Bahadur Shastri, C. Rajagopalachari, Subhash Chandra Bose, Mangal Pandey, Sukhdev. Indian category is not limited to businessmen and plantation owners, but it includes people from all walks of life.

India’s area of land is less compared to the USA’s area of land, but the population is more. It may be the reason behind the delay in succeeding in getting freedom. Forming a group of mutiny has taken time.

The USA today was a group of colonies ruled by Great Britain. The colonists fought the British because they wanted to be free from indirect, unfair taxation imposed on goods such as glass, paint, paper, lead and tea.

Whenever the British entered colonies or groups, the first trouble that they would cause for the group was always taxation. They did it to recover the money they spent on military and naval.

America was named after Amerigo Vespucci, the Italian explorer.

In April 1775, British soldiers and the colonists exchanged gunfire at Lexington and Concord in Massachusetts. It was described as “the shot heard round the world,” it is a bugle for American Revolution and led to the creation of a new nation.

“No taxation without representation” became an iconic slogan. Colonists were taxed against their will and with no form of representation in Parliament.

One of the main causes of the American Revolution was the Stamp Act in 1767 and 1768. Just a year after the imposition of the Townshend Duties, the governor of Massachusetts was calling their fellow colonies people to join them in resisting the British and boycotting their goods, which ended up with a riot in Boston over the seizure of a boat named Liberty for smuggling.

Despite these tremors of discontent, colonies did not seriously consider fighting the British until the infamous Boston massacre of March 1770. 

In December 1773, a group of colonists led by Adams entered the East India Company trade vessel Dartmouth and poured 342 chests of tea into the sea at Boston Harbour. This act is called the ‘Boston Tea Party.’

On July 4th, 1776, the founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence and announced their independence from Great Britain. 

The 4th of July is Independence Day for the United States. The 4th of July is the holiday in the United States when Americans celebrate and sing patriotic songs, such as “America the Beautiful” and “This Land is Your Land.”

On September 9, 1776, the Continental Congress declared the new nation the “United States” of America, which replaced the term “United Colonies.”

The Founding Fathers penned a series of influential governing documents that steer the USA to this day.
