Re: Untold story of India's Independence

British did not leave because they wanted to do good for Indians. They were worried about the revolt in armed forces and the presence of over 2 million trained Indian army who just came back from WW2.

Also they were worried about Soviet Russia, if they did not give independence Russians would have intervened and provided arms to revolt against british. Also british lost lots of young men of that generation to WW2. They were worried that if ever they were to fight another war in India, they would loose many more. british knew about the topography of India and they knew that they will never be able to conquer India in total if ever there is a rebellion in India.
