Maripjan Koshmatov HCIV 101 Dr. David Thornton Essay 1 “I think that we need mythology. We need bedrock of story and legend in order to live our lives coherently”. - Alan Moore Ancient civilizations disappeared a long ago; however people are still curious about them. Despite the absence of most of the historical evidences, one who is really interested in learning as much as possible about the past civilizations, will find all the available information. Myths are some of the historical evidences that could “survive”.
Their truth was authenticated by ab muscles fact of their continued repetition. History, which is often understood to be your free account that purports actually of events and means of thinking and feeling in certain part of the human past, is due to this archetypal human narrative activity. While sharing a common ancestry with myth, legend, epic poetry, as well as novel,history has certainly diverged from all of these forms.

But this has been disputed within the religion as well as outside of it. In 2009, The United Kingdom Hindu Council issued a statement that 'Hinduism does not condemn homosexuality ', subsequent to the decision of the Delhi High Court to legalise homosexuality in India. Probably, this is the only issue for which the priests, Babas & Maulanas from different faiths have been united and agree to raise one voice on this topic. Many of them have told on TV how homosexuality is against the "great Indian culture". But, if one takes a quick glance at the ancient Indian culture, mythology etc, this topic is not new.
The aforementioned ancient philosophical book is traditionally attributed to the mythical scholar of Spring and Autumn period (722 - 481 B.C.) Guan Zhong (Maverick, 1954), and has been investigated by many researchers up to this day (Junjie, 2007; Malyavin, 2002; Spirin, 2006). According to Loewe’s (2003) classification, the text can be defined as a “systematizing” work of pre-Han period (in contrast to “free” texts which usually contained more references to specific personalities and places). Throughout the recent literature (Spirin, 2006; Yingshi, 2014), it is now generally agreed that the author of the text can not be identified as legendary Guan Zhong himself, who lived in VIII-VII century B.C and was mentioned in many works of later period, such as “Lun yu” by Confucius and “Shi ji” by Sima Qian (Junjie, 2007; Goldin, 2011). However, in the vast body of related scholarship, an agreement regarding the time and circumstances of the creation of “Guanzi” has not been reached yet (Rickett,
Literature is the combination of reality and imagination. It mainly focuses on the reality of human life and relates human being through myth. In the contemporary field of literature, Indian writers mostly use mythology in their works. In classical Greek, “Mythos” is refereed as any story whether true or invented. According to M.H.Abrams: A myth is one story in a mythology or a system of hereditary stories which were once believed to be true by a particular cultural group and which served to explain why the world is as it is and things happen as they do establish a rationale for social customs and observations and sanctions for the rules by which men conduct their lives.
Nobody saw them, but we can trace their acts. In particular, I believe in the existences of the Forbidden Land, but I deny all the other myths about it, until I see with my own eyes, and judge by my own heart” Lord Torrance said. “ The myths are what I am concerned about, I want you to tell me whatever you have read or heard about it, no matter, either it's a fake or a fact. I wish to hear them all” the King
Linearity of The Hobbit is not a innovatory narrative element, but it is present in every written text. Linear narration has been used from different ways to discover more things about humanity existence and to know better traditions and social structures. Oral narrator figure has always existed in every culture and civilization, being the clue for the developing and self- consciousness. Tolkien makes a social representation of a well structured and hierarchizased world using the traditional figure of the storyteller to narrate a fantastic tale. In this sense, the omniscient narrator author representation in The Hobbit is Gandalf, but, the Tolkien- author representation in the novel is Bilbo, because hobbit characteristics are familiar to the author because this one identifies social and humanly with him.
When a research paper is submitted in India, there is little or no effort by the instructors or authorities, specially in local colleges, to weed out any sign of plagiarism. "Who is going to check whether I have copied?" is the attitude that arises due to such a situation since no one really cares. The problem with plagiarized text occurs when it is sent to places like USA, where there is strictness in this matter. Many Indian research papers are rejected by journals abroad due to alleged plagiarism.
