Indian history is a game changer

India’s culture history spans more than 4500 years.Our country has a diverse Political ,Diplomatic ,Cultural , Social ,Economic and Intellectual Historic background

History often deals with concrete facts on which we human beings blindly believe as they belong to our ancestors who are considered as true and sacred. It is rightly said that “people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is a tree without roots”.Indeed true knowledge about the past holds an important role that is  experience which teaches us moral and ethical values.

In this dynamic era 4500 year old history has transformed itself drastically in the greatest as well as the saddest possible ways.History For a normal human being, history is defined as the “version of past events that people have decided to agree upon.” It relates to investigation, inquiry, research, account, description, written account of past events, historical narratives, recorded knowledge of past events, stories etc. This is the common knowledge we possess when we hear the word ‘history’. 

People find history boring but every single object or place we find today is connected to history.The place we live in has a history ,the utensils we use in our kitchen ,shoes we wear,clothes ,jewellery ,education etc are connected to history.If I talk about fashion trends these days then 60s - 70s trends are making a comeback in the fashion industry. Anarkali suits which came from Mughal-e-Azam became a fashion icon, blunt-cut bangs and fringes in hairstyles is admired by girls,flared pants and palazzos were publicized by Neetu singh,polka-dot prints and high waist pants are once again in demand,cat-eye makeup of the 70s is trending.

Meanwhile ancient history of india such as about the Indus valley civilization,the vedic culture which comprised of Rigveda, Yajurveda, Samaveda and Atharvaveda, Buddhism, Jainism, Alexander’s invasion in 326 BC , is what we study in the name of history and are expected to cram it. Akbar was only 13 years old when his father died, ‘first battle of Panipat’ was fought in 1526, ‘battle of Plassey’ 1757 and whole lot of interesting history covering the Delhi Sultanate,the khilji Dynasty,Sayyid Dynasty,Lodhi Dynasty, The Mughal Empire etc.The reign of our great emperors their doings ,their achievements,awards are available in our books as well as on the internet .We neither cannot change their honourable works nor anything is questioned because these people are marked as the game changers of our indian history.Indian culture, history, tradition, religion everything is beautiful and will always be appreciated.

Some memorable connected with our Indian history’s past which inspire us even today are

  •   Great Indian epic tales ‘Ramayana’ and ‘Mahabharata’,we never question how much true they are because you,me and our society believes that the potential of our brilliant history makers and writers are not to be doubted upon for even a second.It’s a popular opinion that “History is written by the winners”. From ramayan we get to learn a bundle of captive and crucial things such as  we should always respect our elders ,be loyal and committed to our duties. These are some things which any of us would say are the qualities and abilities which a noble person should possess. 
  • Feeding the poor in need- It is a ritual one performs to pay homage to one's 'ancestors’. It helps us remember our deceased ones and pay homage to them by feeding the poor and needy.Well to do Hindu families often organize bhandaras to feed the needy while remembering their ancestors.
  • “Acharya Devo Bhava'' (Teacher is God) and “Vaidyo Narayanao Harih” (Doctor is Narayana Himself)- These people are ultimate knowledge givers and life savers.Education around 5000 BC ,during the vedic age was through Gurukul where the main focus was to impart education to students and shishyas lived with each other with brotherhood, humanity, love, and discipline. The focus was also given on arts, sports, crafts, singing that developed their intelligence and critical thinking.Meanwhile earlier vaidyas ,hakims were life savers. Helping nature, wisdom, and a sense of responsibility was deeply rooted .

India is a country with multiple cultures and traditions,everything pleasing and charming in its own way. Even today we are not aware of some of the history makers.some people are not even highlighted for their great achievements yet they are a part of history.In the same way everything is not appreciated at all times ,and some things remain hidden as the clouds cover the moon.
