Popularization of history among students: A teacher’s perspective
Dr. Nripen Chandra Das
Every nation takes pride in its own history which may be considered ‘glorious’ or ‘ignominious’ in our interpretation. No nation is ashamed of its own history, because history is a story of our struggle for existence. In our struggle sometimes we succeed and sometimes we fail. No nation has evolved without its own history. Everybody wants to seek ancient lineage. But unfortunately nobody wants to study history seriously as an academic discipline. That is the cause of problem in our education system. This paper wants to trace causes for unpopularity of history in schools and colleges in the state of Assam and suggest measures for amelioration of unpopularity of history as an academic discipline.
