According to the renowned author Chuck Palahniuk, ‘We'll be remembered more for what we destroy than what we create’. So basically, it’s in the nature of humans to remember the events that have not been so pleasant in the past than to think about the pleasant ones. This doesn’t mean that the good events are not recalled at all; fundamentally it’s the destructive nature of the events which steals the attention of the majority. As a result, the wars, natural calamities, deaths, assassinations etc are likely to go more noticed than the achievements and positive developments in various fields. History has always been inundated with disastrous events as well as affirmative ones and July 25th, in particular, covers a gamut of similar events discussed above. From the bloody battles of Abukir and Custozza to the sad killings of Austrian chancellor, Engelbert Dollfuss and exotic dancer Mata Hari, several atrocities took place on this day. From America’s first railroad accident and the ‘Air France’ jet crash in Paris to the Spain’s deadly railway mishap made history on this day as well. Well, these were the not so good events of 25th July; now let’s see the brighter side of this day. Introduction of the first steam locomotive and first commercial use of Cooke-Wheatstone telegraph were a part of this day. The Barcelona Olympics event smoothly to Lance Armstrong’s accomplishment in the Tour de France were some major sports highlights of this day making this day so very special.
