It was Friday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 17, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of July people in US were listening to See You Again by Wiz Khalifa Featuring Charlie Puth. Drishyam, directed by Nishikant Kamat, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while A New Hope by Robyn Carr was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Love Island. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Downwell or Lego Dimensions.
