Missing Drama from Headlines

While reading today’s newspaper, a thought swinged my mind that how humdrum the headlines are made these days. Newspapers are full of headlines on same old debilitating economy, all time high corruption, routine politics and dazed celebrities. This makes me believe that some few years ago, the world was full of high melodrama and so were the newspaper headlines.  Lets sneak-peek into some dramatic captions that shook the world or atleast were worth grabbing a copy!

Although I wouldn’t prefer to live in Hitler’s or India’s partition era.  I think, I would rather put up with the mundane headlines 😦
