History is a subject that enables us to understand the past, comprehend the present and foresee the future. It is a subject of great utility that enriches us and helps us to develop ourselves as mature human beings. Long ago Confucius, the great Chinese philosopher speaking on the utility of history in human life had observed,‘Study the past if you would define the future’. The importance of the subject has been stressed by different scholars at different points of time. In the words of Michael Crichton, one of the most important English novelists of the present generation, ‘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’. Since ancient times history as a subject has been considered essential for the development of mankind and growth of civilizations.
