Rani Mukerji B'day Girl

On This Day…

  • 1413 – Henry V becomes King of England.
  • 1844 – The Bahá’í calendar begins. This is the first day of the first year of the Bahá’í calendar.
  • 1928 – Charles Lindbergh receives the Medal of Honor for the first solo trans-Atlantic flight, from Long Island, in New York, USA to Le Bourget in Paris, France.
  • 1963Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary on Alcatraz Island, in San Francisco Bay, California, USA was closed down. A not so great television series, Alcatraz (2012), staring Sam Neill, Sarah Jones, Parminder Nagra & Jorge Garcia, tells of how all the inmates and guards disappeared in 1963, only to reappear today. All nonsense, but a watchable TV show. Could have been better. I watched this towards the end of last year when it aired on Star World. The show got cancelled after the first season.
  • 1978 – Bollywood actress Rani Mukerji is born into the famed film-related Mukherjee-Samarth family in Bombay (now Mumbai), Maharashtra, India.
