Modern Concept of History

Article Summary   by:Mehboobudesai     Original Author: Prof. Mehboob Desai
ª
 
In the beginning of twenty-first century , concept and objectives of  number of subjects have changed .Transformation has also come in the concept of very important subject like History. History does not mean description of events only , but it means analysis of events and fundamental factors of its creation , interesting  sociological study of personalities. Its true , however , that our History has not yet become free from  limited concept of  Kings and Emperors , their Batted , Victories , Achivments  or dynasties. Such a limited History is Dull and Lifeless like a Telephone Directory.

History is not only story of Kingdom , But it is a story of Mankind

Such a broad understanding has become essential today  as far as the study and education of History are concerned. But we have either not followed such necessity or we have not made such efforts as many lead to the understanding of new generation . We have made no change in the History taught right from primary to graduate and post graduate level.  As a result History tought in schools and colleges has become quantum of lifeless , dull and series of years only.

Oscar Wild has said,

 " Any one can create History . But to write Inspiring and Interesting History is left to luck of very few persons , because it is a difficult task"

Great Historian G.H. Reinyer  said,

" The deeper our Human Understanding , the better our History "

Our History will be rich to the extent to which our human understanding is strong . In order to cultivate our human understanding , it is necessary to catch the throbs of common society experienced in past civilization,culture and achivments , and then only the character and nationalism of future generation not as heavy bundles of information , yet in interactive style. We shall be able to take a littel pride of shaping the best citizens and society having pure character if we understand this fact as early as possible .
