History is built.

a poem by rm shanmugam chettiar, India

History has no present, no future.
It has only the past which’s not exact.
It will take the colour of the writers.
History is a story with some facts.

History is written by the winners.
History is disputed and rewritten.
More truths are buried than lies are exposed.
There is no other way to know the past.

Evidences are taken as milestones.
Hypotheses fill the inter milestones.
Sometimes stories grow into histories.
History is the base for pride and hatred.
