Database of Historical Events

History On a Line


I am dedicating this project to my father, my wife Nita and her brother Shyamal who is a great fan of History and also earned a Master's degree in the subject. This project was partly inspired by Abi's idea of having a database of historical events that one can efficiently search with a query time window and a query keyword. Since we could not find any such online tool, I decided to spend some of my lazy summer days to play around with Ruby>. This four day project was completed on the 23rd day of July, 2017 during the end of my third year of PhD at Tulane University. I thank Nita for her comments and encouragement. I am hoping to get more feedback and contribution from others as well to have a better website and a rich database.

এই প্রজেক্টে আমার মাতৃভাষা বাংলার কথা ভেবে ডাটাবেসে বাংলাও রাখা হয়েছে। বাংলায় ঐতিহাসিক ঘটনা লেখা এবং সন্ধান করা যাবে। আশা রাখি যে বাঙালি জ্ঞানপিপাসু মানুষরা উপকৃত হবেন এবং ডাটাবেসটিকে আরও সমৃদ্ধ করে তুলবেন।
