Top Ten Figures of the Indian Independence Movement

Covering an eventful period of nearly two centuries, a scattered war was waged by India against the British, which began with the English victory in Plassey in 1757. Since then had been rebellions against the cruelty and unfairness of British tyranny in the Indian subcontinent. Soon great battles were fought, immortal personalities emerged, extreme events occured, innumerable were killed or injured or involved in this amazing Revolution - all in the name of freedom, which finally was begotten in 1947.

My take on the most effective leaders of the movement.

2 Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

He is the guy that had the exceptional thinking mind and he makes others with him to work and raise voice with power and intelligence and make the india free of most of the difficlties.

He should be in number one.Fought against British and brought independence to India.Non violence and Truth were his weapons.



3 Subhas Chandra Bose Subhas Chandra Bose Subhas Chandra Bose, was an Indian nationalist whose defiant patriotism made him a hero in India, but whose attempt during World War II to rid India of British rule with the help of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan left a troubled legacy.

He was a real hero. I mean no one supported him neither Gandhi nor anyone to his movement he was removed from Indian congress but he made alliance with Japan and Germany to make India free from British rule he founded Indian national army and hired Indians to fight against British rule. In my sense all are great who fought for my country but I like Bose He was really a dynamic personality

He is a Communist who wanted Independence for India through violence.

He was real hero.

He was dismissed by gandhi from congress. he made an army by the name azad hind alliance with japan. he was communist and wanted independence of indian province.
nobody supported him but he never stopped. the only aim for him was indepence
