Greek Independence Day, observed on March 25th, celebrates the country’s victory in the War for Independence, also known as the Greek Revolution, waged by the Greek revolutionaries between 1821 and 1832 against the Ottoman Turks. The national holiday is marked by great parades, patriotic speeches, and demonstrations in Greece and by Greek delegations and communities abroad.

The vow of the Greek community in Bengal

In the year of our Lord 1802, in the Spring and Easter of our Lord, all the Greek traders residing in Calcutta from Pontos, and Bithynia, and Cappadocia, and Aeolia, and the land of Ionia, and mainland Greece, and islands, and Barbaria (North Africa), and Egypt, and Constantinople, and from all over the world, we gathered in the temple, in the evening after the divine service of the second day of the Resurrection, and took a sacred vow. We shall place in custody in Calcutta our spare money and gold and silver and other property for the resurgence of the race of the Greeks.  No one will ever put a hand on them. They will be bestowed to the kingdom of the Greeks so that with the grace of God it will be resurrected.
