    Dear Friend,
    I admit lack of abilities and limited knowledge of the subject at my command and am curious to learn from all corners; that is why I had initiated discussion on the topic to solicit opinion of the experts. Kindly specify what is 'incorrect' in my statement and what according to you is correct position!

    Therefore, would it not be in the fitness of things if, instead of discussing individual likings or abilities, you come out to add to our knowledge on the topic of the thread by posting your valued views.
    Thanks and regards.

    Sir,

    For me history is a reality.

    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 of antiquity.

    It contains examples of mistakes to avoid, preserves the memory of alternatives ways of doing things, and is the basis for self-understanding.

    Dhanyawad

    with regards
    Action is the foundational key to all success.

    Congratulations Friend,

    You have very beautifully summed up some of the finer characteristics and vital features of history. Further it may be added that history paves a sound footing for the present and proper perspective for future also.

    Regards,

    Today's politics is the history of tomorrow, remembering this the Jat community should at present indulge in such activities as may find pages in the future books of history. What do you think, share!!!

    According to Lala Hardayal [a great revolutionary freedom fighter] ''History ...... is the record of all that Man has thought and done, dared and suffered felt and cherished. Man is not only a subject or a voter, he is also a parent, a bread-winner, am art-lover and a thinker. The whole of his work must be known and appreciated [in History]." ============= source Hints for Self Culture, Jaico Published ed., p.48.

    Who prepares the material to fit in the pages of history i.e. Maker of History, replies H W Longfellow, an American Poet Laureate as quoted below:

    "All are architects of Fate,
    Working in these walls of Times,
    For the structure that we raise,
    Time is with materials filled;
    Our todays and yesterdays,
    Are the blocks with which we build,
    Build today, then, strong and sure,
    With a firm and ample base,
    And ascending and secure,
    Shall tomorrow find its place."

    * Merriam-Webster Dictionary (>> http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/history <<) : a chronological record of significant events (as affecting a nation or institution) often including an explanation of their causes / a treatise presenting systematically related natural phenomena / an established record


    * In the pamphlet by Marx and Friedrich Engels, Marx says : "The history of hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles."


    * Joseph Goebbels said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” . . . . and . . . . “The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly - it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.”

    Friend,

    The last two quotes are lop sided views and have been demolished due to limited scope prescribed of history. Though Marxist theory of class struggle and materialistic interpretation caught the fancy of historians for fairly a long time but has never been an acceptable view in historical circles.

    History encompasses in scope much more than prescribed by these narrow minded political propagandasits of the yore to serve their purpose of popularizing their socialistic [Marxism] or autocratic/Nazism ideology.

    Thanks.

    Please re-read the post under reference; it is not related with Karl Marx but relates to his so called followers.

    To refresh the memory of the participants it is suggested to remember that there are generally five approaches to study the problem of settling any chronological order of an event which happened in the remote past. They are:

    Literary method

    Archaeological Method

    Radio Carbon Technique

    Astronomical Method

    and

    Cross Contacts Method.
