#ThrowBackToday: Four years ago today, Battle of Hogwarts was waged and Harry Potter emerged victorious!
In today's #TBT, we call out to all the die-hard Harry Potter fans and remind them of the importance of today's date. Because today was the day when Voldemort was finally and permanently defeated
When the dark forces of Lord Voldemort clashed with that of Harry Potter's on May 2, 2017, the whole wizarding world sat up and took notice. Why? Because it had been scared of Voldemort for far too long and it was time that his evil control over magic ended. The showdown might be fictional to you but tell that to the fandom of the Harry Potter series and they will disclaim your allegations swiftly. It happened in their minds, their hearts and in the books, how is it fictional? Plus, everyone needs a ‘Truth triumph over evil’ story now and again and the Harry Potter story became so much more than just that.

The grave mistake of crossing over to Pakistan while farming resulted in equally grave consequences for Sarbjit Singh. Labelled an Indian spy and accused of playing a role in bomb attacks of 1990 which killed 14 people in Pakistan, he was convicted on May 2, 2013 and sentenced to jail. And one day, he was attacked with bricks by fellow prisoners which sent him straight into a coma from which he never ever came back. It was a very sad day for India as it had repeatedly appealed for his release.
