 The social sciences are a very important and amazing field of study. A division of science, social sciences embrace a wide variety of topics from anthropology to sociology. The social sciences cover a wide range of topics that are crucial for understanding human experience/ behavior in groups or as individuals.

 As children, our world consisted of our immediate surroundings. It was only through our history lessons that we began to discover the complexities of the world we never saw. From an early age, we were able to learn about different cultures to our own from the Ancient Egyptians to the Vikings. It was through an array of learning tools ranging from songs and videos to textbooks and lessons that made history an inspiring and complete learning experience.

The other day, while driving back from Shimoga I got into a bit of an argument with a close friend of mine. Traversing into philosophy, we were debating whether there is anything called ‘gray’ in life. It all began when I took serious objection to his words ‘there is nothing called gray in my life, I always live in black and white!’ He further went to the extent of saying: “I will never teach my children that there is something called gray.”

What is the use of learning history?” As thirteen year-old, I unobtrusively slipped this question into the question box, hoping to hear my teacher’s illuminating answer. (I hadn’t the temerity to ask such a question to her face.) I can still recall how I waited eagerly for her to pull my question out of the box.

 There were a number of chits in the box that day.

Do you remember a time in your life when you wanted to do one thing, your family wanted you to do something else, and you fought bitterly, got sent to purgatory, rebelled again and thought balefully that the world was against you? Do you remember being told that what you wanted to do was of “no use”? Of course you do, for that practically defines teenage.
