Jay Hind Friends,

This article is having the surprising facts of the history which will change your angle of vision towards our past. History is always written from the view point of historians so it might be contain hidden, missing and truthful information. Here we have tried to put facts of information on an event that has kept the whole of Europe a powerful nation for centuries!


I think this term is quite new for you but this one word have changed the lives of the European people forever. Let's understand the whole event.

- The term Renaissance means 'Rebirth'. The period of Renaissance began from 14th Century & lasted till the 17th century. There was a family in Italy named " Medici '' who had a Bank business in the city of Florence. Giovanni di Bicci (1360-1429) is the first member of the family who created a dense network of merchants around him and his familyThis family made a lot of money from their banking business and as a result, outsider businessman and traders also expand their business in the Florance and soon Medici family became the ruler of the Florance city.

First of all, I would like to ask you a question, what will you do if you have more money than you need? I know it is difficult to answer but um let me guess. I think it depends on individual behavior, for example, If you are interested in exploring nature so you would like to spend money on travelling whereas some people like to spend after shopping, movie food etc. But you would be surprised that this Medici family from Italy spent their saving on reviving European art and culture.

- It began as a movement to revisit the old scriptures and learn about ancient Greece and Rome. But soon, it turned into a movement of new ideas in art, religion, literature, philosophy, science and politics. it resulted in the decline of the Church's influence in the intellectual & cultural life of Europe. It is very important to note that in this period the influence of the church diminished from the people and now individual started thinking not only on the basis of religion but also on the basis of scientifically. I don't know how many among of you agree with me but it is a better truth that any religion in the society needs faith to start it but for the propaganda, they use blind faith! Church talked about peace after death, the renaissance thinkers talked about happiness on this faith. Observe the difference between the two ideologies!

- In the same time of Renaissance; great writers, poets, artists, sculptor, painter, an architect born like Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Sandro Botticelli are among them.
Here I want to show you some best renaissance time sculptures and painting.

- Humanity was at the core of the Renaissance. It meant a focus on Humanity, rather than Divinity. It manifested in a shift in focus towards the study of man and nature, rather than theology.  Renaissance came to imply new thinking, which was humanistic and rational, rather than superstitious. The potential of men, his dignity and his rights were stressed. " The impact of the Renaissance can be gauged by observing the present individualistic societies of the West where the belief in the ability to change one's life is still an important part of one's value system " 

- The invention of  Printing Press in the first half of the 15th century led to further spread to education & new ideas. The scientific revolution was also a product of the transformation and began towards the end of the Renaissance era.
Overall, we can see how the art and culture of the country help to grow nation but it is sad to say in this time the number of people interest in art and literature in India has dropped drastically. Friends, the time has come for us to accept renaissance in India to reveal our ancient and incredible culture.
