    The tune reminds of The Gallant Twa.

    I think the difference between India and some other colonies and nations is that whilst the Americans fought two wars - one for self determination and another for their national identity, when we Indians fought for independance, it was brutally repressed, and we were almost "gifted" independence 60, 70 years later; along with all the baggage that came with it (e.g. partition). IMO this resulted in the lack of a strong national identity that could have been achieved were the british "overthrown" like the americans had done. Although there is some development of national identity, it was/is nowhere near what I would like it to be... :(
