"Necessity is the mother of invention"

 "Necessity is the mother of invention"

In my book "Exploring the Ballpoint", I have expanded on my thoughts about what the above famous saying means to me -

It is rightly said that necessity is the mother of invention. Here, the invention does not mean just any material object or process invented by any scientist, but encompasses everything including our thought process, how we approach life situations, face problems, and find solutions. When the situations, society, people, intellect, or the level of satisfaction become stagnant in any way we feel stuck in one place and then life forces us to do something about it to change for the better. Every time, we have a choice to move forward in one way or the other and it depends on our state of mind which one to choose. Thinking out of the box helps in finding ways that may be unconventional in the normal sense, but it brings to light many things that we might never think about otherwise. But to do so we must also be ready to take risks and spend enough time experimenting with possibilities that seem to promise a better result. And here, nature's gift of imagination which is unique to humans can make a big contribution in finding ways that are untrodden so far. So it all starts with recognizing the stagnant situation and responding to it in a positive way with an intention to move forward.
