It has been rightly said that necessity is the mother of inventions. Most of the inventions and discoveries owe their successful operation to necessity. Unless there is want we cannot struggle to attain the goal. The history of human progress in all walks of life is the history of man's endeavour to reach new goals.
When man felt hungry, he started hunting and till land. The need for shelter lead the man to built huts and houses. The need for quick travel resulted in the invention of the fastest means of transport, making the world short. At the time of necessity, the human mind, which is creative and imaginative, thinks in a very quick manner.
In this age of science where a race is going on, deadly weapons are being manufactured due to necessity. The fear of the enemy has forced the power-hungry countries to invent such destructive weapons of death.
The proverbial crow's necessity of water forced it to find out the way to quench its thirst. In the political life it is again the necessity which leads us to think of new forms of government-whether Socialistic or otherwise in pattern.
As new needs arise, fresh methods are devised to meet them New plans are hatched to find solutions to different problems. Necessity makes us bold, zealous and eager enough to fulfil our needs. Necessity is a blessing in disguise.
What is impossible in the world? Man can achieve anything he wants provided he puts in hard labour and sincere efforts. Where there is a will there is a way. Constant efforts do bear fruit. Where there is any necessity, there is some invention, some research, in order to fulfil that necessity. All our inventions and discoveries are the direct result of our pressing needs.
Necessity is the Mother of Invention
There is ample truth in this saying. It was the necessity of procuring food for his belly by kill up wild animals at a distance that forced the primitive man invent weapons like the spear, the boomerang and the blow and the arrows. Once again, it must have been the necessity protecting his naked body from the scorching heat and terrible cold and other in clementines of weather which urged the ancient man to clothe his body with leaves and palm leaves and then with the skin and fur of animals and subsequently with wool and cotton. Language, in the early stages, must have been the outcome of necessity of men to communicate with one another. Coming to the modern times, it was the necessity of curing the death-dealing cancer and malignant tumors that lead to the discovery of the radium treatment which is very useful in the initial stages of the maladies. When the surgeons found it very difficult to know the exact nature of a stone in the kidney or say a tumor in the brain, X-ray was invented.
So, it is necessity that compiles a man to take initiative and strive hand, to discover something new, if nature were to put everything at his disposal, just like a lories-eater he will slumber and slumber, doing nothing, achieving nothing.
