How much important is religious and historical knowledge?
What is the importance of religious and historical knowledge today? Is today's and upcoming generation going to be devoid of the learning of values, culture, etc that previous generations acquired through the epics, Holy books, historical texts and the like?
The children of the 90's generation were typically taught and showered with the knowledge of our old religious books like Bhagwada Geeta, Ramayana etc and other historical events like those of Maharana Pratap, Revolution of 1857, and other such historical events by their grandparents and parents. The knowledge of these not only showered some important aspects of our traditions and history but also inculcated in the children the feelings of love, truth, forgiveness by the various stories which defined our great ancestral rulers.
Talking about the generation of 2000s we are having nuclear families and usually the grandparents aren't residing with the kids. And the parents are also working. In such conditions the children aren't taught about the different colorful traditions, culture and stories of valour and gallantry of ancestors. Result is that the kids of this generation aren't aware about our customs and about our holy and religious books which would certainly make the upcoming futuristic generations of the next years of 21s and 22s completely unaware about all these. They won't even know about such historical and religious importance of our culture which isn't good for us.
What do you think should be done in order to preserve this and how much important for us is this knowledge? Kindly share your thoughts.
