Absolutely, Geography is a crucial aspect of our day-to-day lives and plays a significant role in various fields of study from businesses to navigation and understanding our environment in a better way to shaping the landscape of our cities and managing disasters in modern day world. Geography aids people in doing their jobs better and making a difference everywhere they go. Answers to several questions are provided via geographic analysis and modelling. Geography is the study of places and people, why they exist, and how they change over time and space. Geography has been enjoying the status of “Mother of all Sciences”, since the long antiquity. Being a multidisciplinary science, Geography integrates knowledge from many physical and social sciences around it. Methodologically Geography can be studied systematically, regionally, descriptively and analytically. It blends physical and human segments of the planet.
