Why do we call our history our past?

Aman narang, VIII

The following points may help you:

a. The term history has been derived from the greek work historia, which mean investigation, inquiry. 
b. When we refer to history, we basically refer to the understanding and knowledge about the events that have brought about the evolution of society.
c. History gives us an understanding about the evolution of society, it is concerned with the changes that have occurred over a period of time. It serves as the basis of understanding of the present as it is only in the light of past we can analyse the present scenario.
d. It is about investigating 
 changes that occur over time. It is about finding out how things were in the past and how things have changed. All such historical questions refer us back to notions of time. That is why when we refer to history we refer to past.
