There is a common saying that if a person wants to move ahead with their life they need to look into their past in order to do so. It is only by accepting a person’s past and their older selves, a person can do great wonders in their life. Everyone makes mistakes but only those who reflect on those mistakes achieve something greater in life. Life is a wonderful thing, these little things may sound like some clique dialogue from a movie, but these are indeed a reality and everyone should accept it. Humans are very simple animals, they are governed by their desires and aspirations, the moment when a human get hold of their desires and aspiration something truly magnificent happens. To conquer these desires and aspiration a person should deep inside themselves, they should learn about their heritage and history. Heritage and their history is a big part of their personality, so it is very important to look into it.
What is heritage?
By definition, heritage means the old traditions, culture and history of the place in which a person reside but it is more than that. Heritage is something that defines the person itself, as a person is defined by their parents, heritage is something that defines a whole community and in some cases a whole nation. For example, if a person is asked which country are they from? It would be very easy to answer that, a person could easily say that they are Indian or American depending upon their nationality. But the real problem arises when a person starts thinking about their nation?
For example, what is India? What is America? This is where heritage comes into the picture, it is an accumulation of all those thoughts, all those historical events, all those stories that happened in a nation. So if an ever doubt about their existence they should look into their heritage. One of the best places to get their answer when it comes to heritage is a museum.
A museum is a place that contains and preserve the history of a place or a country or the world depending upon the size. It contains all the cultural history, important events that took place and even the military history. One of the important aspects of museums is that they contain all the information about the wars that took place and the people that fight and died in them. There is at least one museum in every city there is in the world, so if a person wants to know their forefathers and ancestors they should go to a museum. A museum run by the government is usually free of cost or generally take very little money to enter. So by giving little money a person can gain so much more.
Some government even build heritage centres which help people from different backgrounds living in the same area to come together and enjoy life. One should go to a heritage centre or a museum if they want to know their past.
