History is the branch of knowledge that analyses and records the past events. History is the window to our past, it is an account of how our forefathers lived, their strength, mistakes and the lessons we learn from them. Every nation will have its own history and to get an account of it, we need historians to re- live history. History is also a reflection of the great heritage that a nation possesses, the trials and turmoil faced by the country, the emergence of various powers and events and the way they were tackled.
Every moment is recorded in history whether it is triumph or failure. It is our right to know the history and deepen our fervor for our nation. Oscar Wilde said, ‘anybody can make history; only a great man can write it “history is the witness that testifies to the passing of time. It illuminates reality, vitalizes memory provides guidance in daily life and brings us tidings in antiquity” said Cicero. Let us study and know history to know about the past.
