Do we hate our Past

I was walking yesterday at one of the town in #France; it is called #Rennes a beautiful town surround by lots of old buildings. My friend showed me a massive building which was built sometime around early 19th century and used to be a post office for the this area which is called Bretagne. Then we walked in a street which it self must have been 100’s of year old but still like old days, the city it self had been planned around those historic building. I saw a majority of old buildings around this city, beautifully kept and preserved for generation ahead to show them the past of the country and this society. This is not about only Rennes or France; one can visit any country of Europe and will find preserved building of historic times.

I was quite entangled by the question that Indian history and the civilization is must be older then any of European, if not older then contemporary but we in India don’t seem to preserve our old heritage, the old towns and the buildings are collapsing day by day on the name of development and society does not seem to be worry about it.

I asked my self why?

Do we hate our history or it’s so alien to us that instead of preserving it we would help to demolish? Why in India we don’t seem to give our heritage the remark what Europe or other nations of this world are quite keen on givin
