15 th August ( 1947 )Indian Independence Date Chosen by Mountbatten - WHY ?
The date August 15 was also carefully chosen by the British. It was on this very day that Japan announced to surrender in 1945
Mountbatten was rattled / ever obsessed by the Imperial Japanese victories ( especially in Burma ) and Singapore . Mountbatten had with his name a pretentious and colonial title of 1 st Earl of Burma.
Mountbatten wanted to insult memories of Azad Hind and Netaji Subhash Chander Bose who was in alliance with the Imperial Japanese . They had liberated Burma and Singapore
