Quit India Movement
The Quit India Movement, an offshoot of the situation created by Cripps' failure to resolve the political impasse, was a landmark in India's struggle for freedom. It was the last, and the bitterest fight for freedom ever waged against the alien regime. It surpassed earlier movements in dimensions and intensity. The year 1942 was marked by strenuous political activities in Britain as well as in India; it rocked British imperialism. Gandhi had, after all, succeeded in convincing the British rulers that they were not morally justified in keeping India under bondage and that they had to quit from this land. The movement also marked the end of the Gandhian era in Indian politics. The present work-Quit India Movement; A Challenge to the British Power in India- unfurls, in brief, the story of the mass upsurge, and strives to recapture the ethos of emotive politics generated by it.
