NEW DELHI: The illustrious and mesmerising story of Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s sons, Chaar Sahibzaade is still propounded in the minds of the viewers. It has been that part of the history which was heart taking and most talked stories of the time.

The urge to know more about the story has now come to level, that NCERT has decided to make this as a part of the history books. From the next academic year, NCERT will include a full chapter narrating the story of The Chaar Sahibzaade.

As communicated by The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT), there will be an inclusion of the chapter on ‘Char Sahibzaade’ in its syllabus from next year.

The Hon’ble Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi has also urged the council to issue the same from the next academic year. Directions have been given to accomplish the task before the new schooling sessions start.

The Secretary of the NCERT Major Harsh Kumar has informed about the appreciation he has received from the Director of NCERT for his efforts of including ‘Chaar Sahibzaade’ in their syllabus. He further added that new and innovative policy of education will help the students to learn better.

The suggestion will be placed before the expert committee while developing the syllabus for social science and history.

By adding such topics in the academic curriculum, students will understand the importance of historical events in a better and more appropriate manner.

Neanderthals And Sapiens Both Faced Risks

But the new study is not the final word on Neanderthal trauma

Life as a Neanderthal was no picnic, but a new analysis says it was no more dangerous than what our own species faced in ancient times.

That challenges what the authors call the prevailing view of our evolutionary cousins, that they lived risky, stressful lives. Some studies have suggested they had high injury rates, which have been blamed on things like social violence, attacks by carnivores, a hunting style that required getting close to large prey, and the hazards of extensive travel in environments full of snow and ice.

While it’s true that their lives were probably riskier than those of people in today’s industrial societies, the vastly different living conditions of those two groups mean comparing them isn’t really appropriate, said Katerina Harvati of the University of Tuebingen in Germany.

Neanderthal model. Reconstruction of a Neanderthal (Homo neanderthalensis) based on the La Chapelle-aux-Saints fossils. Neanderthals inhabited Europe and western Asia between 230,000 and 29,000 years ago. They did not use complex tools but had mastery of fire and built shelters. It is thought that they had language and a complex social structure, living in small family groups and hunting for food. It is not known why Neanderthals became extinct, but one theory is that they were outcompeted by modern humans (Homo sapiens). Reconstruction by Elisabeth Daynes of the Daynes Studio, Paris, France.

A better question is whether Neanderthals faced more danger than our species did when we shared similar environments and comparable lifestyles of mobile hunter-gatherers, she and study co-authors say in a paper released Wednesday by the journal Nature.

To study that, they focused on skull injuries. They reviewed prior studies of fossils from western Eurasia that ranged from about 80,000 to 20,000 years old. In all they assessed data on 295 skull samples from 114 individual Neanderthals, and 541 skull samples from 90 individuals of our own species, Homo sapiens.

Injury rates turned out to be about the same in both species.

That questions the idea that the behavior of Neanderthals created particularly high levels of danger, Marta Mirazon Lahr of Cambridge University wrote in an accompanying commentary.

But the new study is not the final word on Neanderthal trauma, she wrote. It didn’t include injuries other than to the skull. And scientists still have plenty of work to do in seeking the likely cause of injuries and evidence of care for the injured, which could give insights into the behavior of both Neanderthals and ancient members of our species, she wrote.
