Before going into the details of the famous and tragic Titanic disaster, let’s first plunge into the history of the Titanic ship. Titanic is the ship that grabbed the attention of the whole world, when it was made, and when it sank (Molony). The 1950's version of the Titanic's sinking, "A Night to Remember', and the latest 1997’s version of James Cameron’s Titanic, are the masterpieces that detail the shipwreck. Ambekar (para.1) writes that, “Titanic was one the greatest ship built in twentieth century.” It was of such great strength that it was believed to be unsinkable. It was the largest ship ever made, “stretching a sixth of a mile from bow to stern, standing ten stories high from its keel to the top of its four funnels and displacing over 45,000 tons”, writes Barczewski (1). It was an ostentatious and grand ship, known as the British passenger ocean liner, and was owned and driven by White Star Line (Eaton and Haas). Thomas Andrews, the head of Harland & Wolff design department, was the designer of this 882.5 feet long ship. Commissioned by White Star and built by Harland and Wolff, it was created between 1908 and1909 in Belfast (Ireland), by more than 15,000 Irish shipyard workers.
It is said that at that time, every worker was paid nearly $10 per week. Titanic was called unsinkable because of its strong structure. It had double bottom. The hull, whose number was 401, was divided into sixteen waterproof compartments. The structure of the ship was such that it could support the ship to stay floating, even if two of its middle compartments, or four of the front compartments, submerged under water and got flooded. Interior Design Now, let’s talk about the interior decoration of Titanic. Registered in Liverpool and belonging to the Olympic class of the White Star Line, the ship offered a luxurious lifestyle to its passengers, though it was far away from land. It contained all kinds of entertainment facilities, dining halls, pubs, dancing floors, living rooms, and massive kitchens. Equipped with four 400 kilowatt electrical generators, the Titanic ship had a plentiful supply of electricity. The passengers had the facility of separate rooms, and they could use electric heaters and electric lamps. The deck offered all kinds of continental foods, thus increasing the lavishness on the ship. The food was stored and refrigerated properly. Special areas had been dedicated to indoor games. A fully furnished gymnasium was also present in which the passengers could do their daily exercises. Passengers could use lifts for moving inside the ship. There was proper ventilation in the ship, due to which proper airy conditions were maintained. Passengers could use telephones to communicate. Radios were also available

The Titanic disaster is viewed by many people as a distant disaster unique to the time it occurred, but the social differences that were experienced by its passengers are still life in the current times. Social class is a way of identifying people according to the way they talk as well as their material possessions that group people in categories.
If you're self-perceptive, get that God has provided us with, two ears and one mouth to ensure that we might listen double the amount once we talk. The reason God equipped us with two ears; however it does create a lot of sense. Among the world’s greatest tragedies might have been avoided if perhaps someone listened.
Using the couple as a medium, several filmmakers have attempted to show the audience the background that is constituted by poor living conditions and the squalor that is often associated with the life of a person in a city. There are other movies that look at historical events through a tale of romance that is set during that period.
The sinking of the titanic is a tragedy that I shall forever live to remember. I vividly remember the events that unfolded in the North Atlantic Ocean waters, starting from the night of 14 April to the next day, when Titanic was no more and sorrow hovered over the ruthless titanic waters. Witnessing the event was like a nightmare.
