While one shouldn't dwell in the past, it shouldn't be forgotten either for it shapes events which play out in the future. Moneycontrol takes a look at some of the crucial episodes on July 4, which had a bearing on the fortunes of India and the world.
On this day in 1999, India had won a month-long struggle to recapture Tiger hill amid the ongoing Kargil War with Pakistan.
