“If you don't know history, then you don't know anything. You are a leaf that doesn't know it is part of a tree. ”                                                                                              Michael Crichton

             The rationale for teaching/studying history is complex and controversial. Knowledge of history satisfies human craving to know our past. All human beings, by nature are curious about their pasts and the events in the past that made them what they are today. Knowing the past is like knowing the change that has occurred and change inspires us to change further for better. This knowledge provides an opportunity to learn from mistakes and improve.  Secondly, the knowledge of history can only help to a certain extent in solving societal problems. Finally, the knowledge of history inspires continuously to make our lives better. Thus, the impact that history has in our lives in making a better society is much more than the clues it gives to solve our societal problems.
