It has been an ironical possession of dramatic life. The reality is often left half told. We have a tendency to make normal things dramatic. If we can take a look in history, we can ask ourselves an interesting question- ‘who are we? The obvious answer is- We are ‘human beings’. But here is a doubt-’Really’?
History says that human beings have created history. They were the lucky creature to speak, feel and sense everything on earth. History has its account of human actions, ideal, beliefs, and endowments. With the passage of time, they forget about their own existence.
