From my school days, I was not very well interested in history as many. Even today students show least interest in histories. Some say the books itself are already are the past histories then why do we need history separately. I even had the same thought. But my recent read revealed me the practical facts about histories. The book was about the history of management – The evolution of management thoughts by Daniel a. wren. The answer for my question “Why do we need history?” was there in few sentences.
“Today is not like yesterday, nor will tomorrow be like today; yet today is a synergism of all our yesterdays, and tomorrow will be the same.”
I felt the phrase has loads of messages for everyone. All I learnt is each day counts. Our very tomorrows may not be in our hands but every today is ours which will be counted for our tomorrows. It took me 25 years to know the need for histories. That’s why history subject is declared to be the compulsory subject for students till 10th class. Teach and provoke the quest in knowing histories to your children. They will know the value of today and they will make histories. Soon will post a review. Wish you a happy today!!!!
