Learning about the past has no value for those of us living
Life is a very beautiful gift given by god to every living being. There are three important phased attached with everyone life are Present, Past and Future. Past is the time which has been passed, we live in present and carefully plan for our future so that we can live better. Although most of the time we live in present but past also play a very vital role in our life and we can not or more preciously I would say we should not neglect the importance of past. I would like to present following point in support of my opinion.
The first point to accede my point is that we get a chance to learn from our mistake if any we have done in past so that we can be better prepare ourselves for the future challenges and become successful in every aspect of live. History witnessed that many people learn from there past and become very successful in there life. A very good example of this is from indian history is that when Mohammad Gajnabi attacked india he was defeated by indian emperors 16 times but every time he came back he tried to removed his prior mistake and in 17th attempt he got victory and this became due he developed the ability to learn his past.
The second point in my opinion is that some time remembering past give us peace too. This sounds awkward but I felt is personally. I used this technique to my self whenever I got failed in some work or sad I try to remember my childhood day, playing in field, running behind the kites and other naughty things which I have done in my childhood and believe me it gives me immense pleasure and my sadness go away I become full of energy and will start working on the same problem with full energy so in this case remembering about good past boost my energy and work as a soothing agent. I would suggest you to apply this method to you and believe me it will work for you as well.
So In summery I would say although we live in our present but Learning about the past also play a undeniable role in our life and we should always learn from our past.
