4th July. Only some of us may know the relevance of this date in India. And those who know are either people who have some links with USA or probably those who work in American companies and get a Holiday here in India because it’s a holiday in USA on 4th July.
It’s a day commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, the date on which the United States formally separated from Great Britain
Some time Last year I was at American Library with my Son, Hargun Singh Tikku.
While he was busy reading his books, I went around searching for some Book that would keep me engaged.
While surfing, I stumbled upon a book which had profiles of various Men who have graced the office of President of America and I Just flipped a few pages.
As of now the White House has been graced by 44 Gentleman. Barak Obama being the 44th.
It was a particular date that I saw on all pages in those few seconds, That made me attentive and flip again properly.
The Date was 4th July .
However the Co-incidence that grabbed my Attention was that one of them was born on 4th July and three of them died on 4th July.
And rather 2 of them died on 4th July 1826. Same Date, Same Day, Same year
Strange isn’t it?
