Everyone remembers the best of the past, and in our history we always display our medals and crowns only. We are proud of the invention of penicillin but we forgot the massacre of World Wars. We should remember the worst moments so that we should not repeat them as we wish that they would have never happened.

Let’s look back into the history and recall the worst moments:

Great Chinese Famine:  (1958-1962)

During these four depressing years for Chinese more than 45 million people were died, due to the famine caused by policies of Mao Zedong. The other main reason were the Yellow River flood in 1959  and shortfall of rain in 1960. Mao was responsible in the sense that he wanted to convert his agrarian country to industrial one, but in the process millions were starved to death.

World War One (1914-1919)

No one can truly be blamed for this war, but whole humanity should be made responsible for it. Everyone was looking for a chance to invade other, as whole Europe was standing against each other. The starting point of the war was the assassination of Austrian prince.  So many countries fighting against each other, a black hole of massacre was created; kind of a chain reaction.  More than 15 million people were dead.  We all agree that WWI is the epitome of the homo sapiens idiocy.

World War Two (1939-1945)

Humanity was washing its wounds when another disastrous turn was taken by history. The World War Two.  As a whole Adolf Hitler was blamed for all the chaos and  bloodshed. The most dreading aspect of the War was Atomic bombing on Hiroshima and Nagasaki by America and the Holocaust; we all know it. Much has been already said about it. During Holocaust more than 6 million people were brutally murdered.

No one can truly be blamed for the Bubonic Plague  of 1346. But in that Middle ages, cats were eradicated as they were regarded as the witches. This led to the increase to in number of rats and there were no cats to control that number. Rats filled with the fleas carries the Yersinia pests, better known as Plague. 20% population of Europe was dead at the end. Plague is one of the disease with 100% mortality rate if not treated properly.

The most destructive nature calamity ever happened in the human history. An earthquake of 9 magnitude on rectors scale took place under the Indian ocean, causing floods and earthquakes in the continent of Asia. It was called as the deadliest Tsunami of the history. According to a Geological survey, Tsunami have released energy equivalent to 23,000 Atomic Bombs dropped on Hiroshima. In the brutal claws of nature, more than 200,000 people died and Million injured and homeless and loss of billions of dollars.

These were some of the darkest turns in the history of mankind, we should learn from them and teach our incoming generations that these stupidities should not be repeated.
