Workshop

Vasu Reddy From Chicago

World is a workshop and we are always trying to figure out how to make things to simplify our day to day actions. All of us living things are constantly doing something to simply live and make life simpler by trying to simplify life itself. Beginning with the industrial revolution era, a workshop may be a room or building which provides both the area and tools that may be required for the manufacture or repair of manufactured goods. Workshops were the only places of production until the advent of industrialization and the development of larger factories.

India and the rest of the world continues to be a workshop as the whole world continues to be interested in better and bigger things, and in ones life time the idea of bigger and better is constant. Some countries call themselves developed, some call themselves developing nations and some are simply under developed. Whatever the terminology for development in the world, each and everyone of them are seeking a workshop on bigger and better in all aspects of materiel things and mind. The whole world is working on development and development, and as change is constant so is development.

Ask anyone in the world they have plans on doing something or making something, outside of what they already do. Me, I always wanted to be a farmer, and I still want to be a farmer. I don't know how and when I will be a farmer, but I constantly think and plan being a farmer. Don't ask how, don't know when, have no idea what implies farming in the USA, but still want to be a farmer. The key word is want to be a farmer. Along with me rest of the world has plans for working on something, as we have to plan and plan and continue to plan, as the world itself is a massive workshop ready for us, and all we have to do is get started working.

Children even before they can read or write will tell you what they aspire to be when they grow up. This is typically inspired by the parents and or adults around them prompting to think of being a so and so, and wanting to do so and so; and as they grow older they certainly look up to someone and start thinking of becoming just like that someone. Life it self will start to plan and deploy what we will be doing and how our work life will shape up for the rest of our life, and nothing will change the wisdom of fate. All said and done we will still continue to aspire to do something that we have always thought of, and just thinking of doing something we have dreams of will make us plan, think, and even enjoy the thoughts of just being able to think of doing just what we wanted to all our life. Life as it is predictable for whatever it is, simply drives the time as it so chooses and allowing very few of us to really do what we want to do. This has nothing to do with money or time or opportunity, it simply is what it is, and it is circumstance rather than resources.

India as well as other nations which aspire for better conditions, simply compare themselves to others and derive their planning on development based on someone else displaying their way or life. It is not saying planned and clean living is nothing to learn from, but the people of each country can make their our environment to best suit to their needs and not reflect on any other nation to copy from. We can all have the same aspirations in life, education and environment; all of which simply leads to self help which is the best kind of help.


For ages and ages people have traveled and imparted their wisdom, expertise and enterprise to others across the globe, and when appropriate and convenient they also took advantage of the people of the new world they visited to best suit their purposes. When there were no communications except by word of mouth or pony express the world did not learn of the rest of the world quickly. Today we don't need to wait as the news and word is instant, and everyone knows what is going on everywhere. Our world is a massive work shop with the tool kit/kits to allow us to plan, produce and execute to the resources and environment we live in, and also to best suit to our needs. We already have the place and tools, all we have to do is figure out what best serves our needs and execute to those needs. No one is smarter, no one is better, no one is greater, it is all of us who have the workshop, and the tools and the needs, and we should make the best use of the opportunity to best meet our needs.
