In Sanskrit or most of Proud sister of a class of 2022 graduate senior graduation T Shirt derived languages, “history” translates into “itihasa”; which literally translates into “something that has happened in the past and will again happen in the future.” In early Indian civilizations, “time” is often perceived as a “cycle”; as we can now see from the ancient texts. This is opposed to the idea of the linear chronological scale, where the “history” is buried in the past, the “future” is something yet to be seen, and we live “in this moment”; which fleets every nanosecond. The idea of this nanosecond, perplexes all physicists, as this varies from planets to planets, from one device to the other. So, what is time and what is this timeline? According to me, although, there is no doubt that future holds surprises for us, and the human race is immensely gifted to achieve more and push its boundaries in the future; but, still, it’s the present that shapes the future. Similarly, it’s the past and its mistakes that have shaped the present, allowed us to learn from them and progress more.
