Abstract

History is more than the path left by the past. If a nation wants its history would shape its future, its people should stop, think and see their past. Upon looking back, they will certainly find themselves at a diverged path, having two emerging roads to the past. As they are not one traveler, they would not need to look down every road, as far as they could, to find the better claim of their choice. So, they are free in their selection. The first road leads to joy and pleasure of the past. This road is taken by most of the people of a nation. Such people study, write and describe their past keeping themselves in their comfort zone. For example, Mirza Ghalib has been described in a very different way by Prof. Yousuf Hussain Khan – the head of the Department of History in Osmania University, than what is explained by Sheikh Muhammad Ikram based on his analysis of Ghalib, supported by the Allama Iqbal’s poetry.
