History builds us or spoils us?
History is anything that relates an individual to his/her past. History always reminds a human to know what he was in his past and what he is now. If we take our past and can find what all mistakes that we have committed than we can be able to build a fantastic future, as we can learn from our mistakes.
History will always build us. As, we take India’s history which consisted of social-religious practices like untouchability, caste system, sati system, child marriage and what not. But then we came to know that such practices must be stopped and we took necessary steps for that. This helped us to build such a society that was free of such evil practices. Thus, history helped us to build our society.
Similarly, in the ancient times woman was given a low priority and because of this female infanticide arose. People would kill the girl child before she comes into this world. Woman was ill treated and her education was not given any importance. Then, several laws were made for the upliftment of woman, not only her ill treatment was controlled but she was given right to education.
Many NGO’s were made that helped woman a lot. Thus, people were made to realize that they need to give equal importance and rights to a woman as that of man. And, again history builds us.
People made small children to work in their factories like fire cracker. These children were treated badly and were not given food to eat. Then, government came forward and made those people guilty who made children their labours.
Thus, from these practices which we came to know our faults and we took steps to remove them. Thus, history helped us to build a good society and indeed a good nation.
History can also lead to spoiling us if we continue to practice in the same way as we do and don’t take necessary steps to eradicate our faults. If we continue to practice in the same way as we are doing than we will degrade ourselves a lot.
We will give acceptance to those practices that are practiced since ancient times. Hence, in this case it will lead to spoiling ourselves and indeed spoiling the society.
Thus, we come to a conclusion that if we learn from our history what all faults we have committed and are able to overcome them than History surely builds us otherwise spoilage is the ultimate end. This will stuck the individual than the society and then wholly spoiling the nation.
