Recent inquiries into the state of education in India have been riddled with questions that seem to offer no easy solutions to educationists, philosophers and social theorists. Some of the questions raised in debate are: while privileged Indians go on to receive education in institutions of repute, millions of people do not receive even primary education. Philosophers of education also ask whether the whole human being can be educated, as there is an increasing trend towards specialisation in technological and intellectual fields.

History is concerned with lives, events, situations and developments in time and through time. So chronology is central to its understanding. It helps children understand key concepts such as change and causation. In order to understand big questions in History children need to establish in their own minds a chronology of events to help them make connections between them and see their wider implication in their study of History. However, very little time is spent in developing in children, a good sense of time.
