so today's topic is history and legend.this topic looks very interesting.i am not a lover of history but still i will try to write this speech.

i usually start all my essays and speeches with quotes but in this case i will start with some very simple and common questions.

my first and foremost question would be:

what do we mean by history?

the definition of history is actually the past events and works which has led to a great change of this world.according to me this should be the perfect definition for the word 'history'.

now the question is :

what do we mean by legend?

legends are also called as  mythologies. i  would  say  that the stories of the past which are very famous are known as legends.they may be true or just false stories.

history and legend:

history and legend are very much related to each other.the historians are just people like us.they  are not god.they an study the things found which belonged to the past.but they cannot very very sure that all the events that they make out are true.the events that they are not sure about that they are true or not , these events are called legends.
so as a fact history and legend are related to each other to a great extent.

History and Legend


Hello friends I am Shivam Thakur and I am here to speak on the topic “History and Legends”.

Now firstly the question rises what is this history? And what is this legend? And what is the difference between these two? I will answer all these questions.

According to me History is the study of human past events and it is left behind by human beings in the written documents. It is very important for us that we should know our culture, tradition, and customs. It can be remembered if we know the history of our ancient peoples. We give homage to freedom fighter because they give us independence and we know this because we know history.

Now the answer to the question what is legend is as follows: - Legend is a traditional stories which may be true or may be lie. For examples =folktales and fairy tales. The probability of both truth and lie is 50%.This legend also contributed to history in many ways.

And these all tells us what difference between History and Legends is that we can easily separate them. Historical event from the testimony is witness and learn but it is not produce as like legend (Traditional stories like fairy tales and folktales).
