They promote a sense of identity, pride as they highlight the knowledge people had in understanding natural as well as the social phenomenon. The ancient system of knowledge mainly consisted of understanding the mysteries of the universe, human interactions with environment, philosophy of life and the significance of conserving the habitat for peace, harmony and sustenance.
