On the Shoulder of Giants

  • The people that laid the foundation stone of development and their endeavors were marked by their zeal to do better for the world.
  • I won’t be skeptical and say that zeal is lost completely, but you wouldn’t disagree with me if I stand and say that we see very less of it now.

The above phrase might be used by Isaac newton to either mock or to be in obligation to the giants of his field, this still holds true in today’s world.

We have been going on and on in the exploration of unknown and the impossible but with certainty have forgot how we have reached there.

The people that laid the foundation stone of development and their endeavors were marked by their zeal to do better for the world. They wanted to understand what was not explained and do better for the community at large. I won’t be skeptical and say that zeal is lost completely, but you wouldn’t disagree with me if I stand and say that we see very less of it now.

Less number of innovations, except some, are done directly in the benefits of the society. Even the drugs that can radically change the scenarios are being cornered by some or the other allegations. We have huge stature taking their last breaths in disgrace and shame, and we have expected exact opposite of it. We, the common people, would want to have idols and heroes to look upon to but are being failed on our expectations every now and then.

The societal norms must have changed but the innate nature of beings have not. We don’t see interventions as huge as world wide web not being patented for monetary motives. All we see is now that innovations are there but are directed towards segments. We have to come above all these. All what the few, who have the power and knowledge to innovate should move their moral compass for people who are in dying need of it. We do have few examples of exemplary people who stood out and addressed the bigger picture.

We do need inventions and innovations for all beings of this planet Earth, but since we achieved a high degree of modernization, we should always adhere to the community at large as all we achieved is one or the other is because of the fact that we were seeing everything standing on the shoulder of GIANTS.

All I have been able to see is whilst standing on the shoulders of giants.
