    These records and books can prove to be big help in learning the colonial facts of the British Empire and also the minute details that otherwise could not be collected from the various sources. When I was child history didn’t fascinate me, but now my choices have changed. Can you the audio gave a lot of information that made me more interested in searching for the other related facts. Can you guide me where to go and look for them?

    I have one more idea striking my mind now!! I m into teaching profession so why not use this audio to attract my students towards the real facts of history? Though I m teaching history but I’ll suggest my friend who is teaching the subject, he too will be happy to know that I have started taking interest in the subject. Learning the historical facts this way would be restored in the mind for longer and would prove a good for teachers as well as students.
