Coming Events Cast Their Shadows Before

Significant events are often preceded by signs that they are about to happen. In the past, people believed in good and bad happenings which preceded events to come. If you pay attention to these, you can generally tell when something momentous is about to happen. There are usually warnings or signals when an important event approaches in your life. At times certain events are indications that are believed to foretell things that may occur in future, often signifying the advent of change. It is usually seen and warning to the change of events that is to come. It may be either "good" or "bad". Small events can be a guide to momentous happenings. If the Foreign Secretary tells a taxi-driver at two o’clock in the morning to take him to the Prime Minister’s residence and drive like the devil, we can suppose that an international crisis is looming. Certain signs precede certain events.’ For example, the widening by the Germans of the Kiel Canal in 1909 to admit the passage of modern battleships was a sign preceding the outbreak of World War I in 1914. As history points out political instability and dissatisfaction among people have been culminated in riots later. Coming events cast their shadows before. Similar proverb is “A straw will show which way the wind blows”.
