When I was at school, almost all the students I knew hated history. I could not understand why. Some would tell me that history is boring, some would fret about the dates and names, and some would get agitated over mugging it up. Absolutely no one would even try to understand why history was a part of the curriculum. I on the other hand love history. I did not treat it as a subject but like an epic novel which unwound the mysteries and wonders of the world to me through the ages of Man.
History my friends is not dates, names and facts, it is much more. It is the insight into the making of the world as it is today. Can anything else be more interesting? It showcases us the wonders of man as well as his blunders and a thorough analysis of history leads today’s men towards creating a better present and future after building on the successes and working on the mistakes.
I don’t want to go into facts and figures trying to prove my point. What I wish to inculcate that History is essential for the betterment of the entire race. We should be as passionate about the history of the world as we are about the history of our families. History throws open I front of us all the happenings earth has recorded since the advent of the first creatures and helps to analyze different aspects of life and living in different eras of the world. It is history which maximizes the use of our power of observation and develops our rationale.
In the end I would share a thought of my own
“HISTORY AND HAPPENINGS WERE ALWAYS MEANT TO SHOW US THERE FLAWS, OBSERVE BY THE POWER OF OBSERVATION BESTOWED IN US BY GOD AND MOVE OVER THEM, NEVER TO REPEAT THE MISTAKES AGAIN”
