These are questions that are answered by History. History is the story of long ago days.
The story of our earth and its people. How do we come to know these stories? There are many different storytellers, who can tell us tales of the past. They include books, records, people,...but one of the most important storytellers is Monuments.
Monuments are the structures or buildings left behind by our ancestors. These structures help us piece together important events of the past. When we see the Taj Mahal, we learn about the famous love story of Emperor Shah Jahan and his wife Mumtaz Mahal.
Similarly, the Bhimbetka caves give us an insight into the lives of the people living in India, thousands of years ago! This book is an attempt to familiarize children with our country’s rich heritage, recorded by magnificent monuments.
