As I sit in the bus stand waiting for that one bus to come so that, I go home. I observe a hell lot of bizarre things around which are funny and in a way, you know they are like the cheerleaders who cheer me for the work that I do daily by giving me my daily dose of comedy. The funny drunken guy making weird signs to every crossing bus that is not taking him to home.The complaining guy shouts out loud against the government saying ‘what the hell?!! A bus an hour huh? And that also doesn’t come in time?’ The hell with all the government employees, hell with government ministers. There is also a silent complainer who complains to the fellow beside him. Everyone has a reason and someone to blame.
We all survive on these emotions isn’t it?!.some of us also want to shout out like him or make signs like other guy but you know, we don’t why?? Because it’s not civilized or what people will think or because people are going to laugh at me. The same iterative jobs we do sitting in front of the computer in an A/c room thinking when it’s gonna hit 7 or 8 clocks so that I can leave this and catch the shitty bus and go and sleep. Next day again get up and go do the same thing and again wait for same time. We do an iteration of repetitive work we do and we live the same day we started working for years and expect happiness out of it. Oh! I forgot the sleeping day “The Sunday”. When you think about it’s strange. Is life only this much? or is there something more to it?
Maybe the gift you bought for your parents out of your first salary, maybe it’s the first EMI you filled for your dream bike you dreamt of all throughout your college life, maybe it’s the first installment of loan you had to clear. many things we make out of the salary we get out of the salary we get for the repetitive work we do like some robots. Then as you grow it becomes the fees for your son or daughter. We all somehow want the salary and we all hate our jobs but still do the work because we don’t know what will happen to us if we leave the job and go.
The thing about perfection… you can perfect something only when you practice something again and Again. That’s how things are.. right?! even the great scientists only study science for so long or any subject conduct experiments in the exploration of new things. For example, an astronomer keeps on observing skies throughout his life thinking he is going to find something new, something that others haven’t seen so far. It’s just like any other job go everyday sit in the same place or changing places and doing the same thing again and again. In this period of repetition, you observe patterns or gain some tricks up your sleeve and learn to do the same thing faster. Of course, you can improve the process but always remember “ tube light wasn’t invented with the continuous evolution of candles”. Maybe that is why everyone learns a new software when it gets popular because they have to survive. Else, the younger ones who know will overtake older ones who know the older software.
We, in fact, are in such circumstances only. Because… everyone needs to understand what you say, so you learn the most common language. because people need to understand what you find out or in math you learn formulas in the same manner as others because the evaluator who is evaluating your papers should know what have you written. That’s how things we all need something common to interact. We learn to know other people we learn same repetitive things because we want to be in sink with others and those who can’t learn or act like normal people are special. Who knows they may be sculpting something far, more beautiful than what we have ever seen. but aren’t able to express it in our common language or common means.
I don’t know whom to blame for nature for its means of creations or humans for thinking. may be automation will evolve completely someday and all these repetitive works will someday be done by robots and we will appreciate every unique skill of an individual has and there will be much more things than there are now. Or maybe we will again be doing the similar jobs such as inspecting the Robots or even some other things such as that. Maybe world will be a better place to live with everyone, understanding each other or maybe we learn to live on skies and make the land a dump yards.
