Essay On My Favourite Subject History
Education is very important in life. Our life is incomplete without education. While studying various subjects during our school and college days, we develop a special liking towards one or the other subject. I like History the most.
Literally, history means the description of events and actions that have taken place in the past. History gives us information about great personalities, their contribution to building the nation, discoveries, wars, and progress. History helps to develop our thinking ability. It helps us to know what mistakes we have done in the past and how to rectify them.
I am especially interested in Indian history. It gives us knowledge about the Aryan and Sindhu cultúre The rise of Jainism and Buddhism, the attack of Sikander, access of Islam in India, entry of Mohammed Ghori in India, the Khilji monarchy, Tughlak monarchy, the establishment of the Mughal dynasty by rulers like Babar, Akbar, Jahangir, Shah Jahan, Aurangazeb, the great Maratha Kingdom of Shivaji, the rise and fall of Peshwas all this can be understood by the study of history.
History tells us about the prosperity of India. We come to know how the Muslims and the British exploited us. It tells us about our freedom fighters who sacrificed their lives to make India independent. History gives us information about the biographies of our great leaders like Lala Lajpat Rai, Subhash Chandra Bose, Rajguru, Sukhdev, Bhagatsinh, Savarkar, etc
History gives us information at a particular time, about the political, social, cultural, and religious situation of our country. It also tells us about the educational pattern, spread, and prevalence of religions, people, their way of living, food, clothes, culture, etc. It gives us information about the condition of women in a society, the evil tradition of sati, etc.
The ancient constructions like the Taj Mahal, majestic forts, the magnificent carvings of Ajanta and Ellora attract tourists and portray our rich cultural heritage. History indicates the progress of the nation. It tells us not to repeat the mistakes that our forefathers have done. It explains the events by giving evidence along with the date. So history makes the description more authentic and at the same time interesting.
Reading History is the best way to improve our knowledge. I like to read all kinds of historical books.
