Video Description

Gowalia Tank Maidan (now also known as August Kranti Maidan) is a park in central Mumbai where Mahatma Gandhi issued the Quilt India Speech on 8 August 1942 decreeing that the British must leave India immediately or else mass agitations would take place. The Gowalia Tank was initially used to bathe cows. The Maidan is now a popular playground. The Maidan that exists over there presently was built over the tank, which still exists underground. Gowalia Tank was also a very prominent tram terminus. Trams would start and finish there and one could travel to the Prince of Wales Museum in one anna (six paise).
