Answer
Hi Aishwarya,

Yes I agree it is somewhat confusing.  But I noted the same thing in other chapters as well, so it is an established pattern in this book.  The initial paragraph is about Bastille day which is a key date in the French Revolution.  The author then goes back to frame the historical context, the protests, the Kings rule and the revolution which over threw the kingdom.  So, take the opening out of context, and start with the historical framework, and it should then make more sense as this is in historical sequence.
