Najar ko badlo nazare badal jayenge
This story is real but the name has been changed to keep privacy.
One very morning a call came one of my friend Sunil that he is sending a man who needs badly a job. He told that he is in great problem and unless he doesn’t get job he will sale the gold medal. I surprised which gold medal. My friend told that this man name is Ramu and basically he is an artisan. He made one fly (makhi) which looks exactly like live fly (makhi). One can’t differentiate between live and this artificial.
I surprised to see and found that he was telling right. I told him you are a great artisan. Why are you having money problem. I asked one more question what is your earning sources. He told sir ji, as and when some VIP comes to Jaipur and if that VIP wants to see art of Jaipur than your friend call artisan like me to show that VIP the artist articles than we artisans called to show the artist items. If that VIP he happy or your friend happy then we get some money. This is our earning source. So we always wait for these seths.
I rang back Sunil and told either you people are full or don’t know to motivate the artisans to make the artist thing which has some commercial value. If it happens than the artisan will not depend upon anyone. This is a great problem in India. Sunil told me further that they are doing their best and the Government is planning to give pension and subsidy also.
I told sunil that the real solution is not giving the subsidy or pension or to keep these artisans dependent upon mercy of some VIPs’ Seth. The real solution is that these artisans like Ramu should earn themselves.
Sunil told no one will buy fly(Makhi). This fly has artistic value and we should keep the art alive. I told, no, you are wrong.
I gave Ramu Rs. 200 and one 2fts. Photograph of spider (???? ). I told him to prepare a live spider. Ramu prepare it in two days and that spider was so attractive that he gods the orders to prepare 1 lakh spider.
Today Ramu is not dependent upon any seth or subsidy. He don’t need to wait for these persons like beggar. He is not dependent upon any subsidy.
I told Ramu that he should always remember that a Bird sitting on a tree isn’t afraid of the branch shaking or breaking, because it doesn’t trust the Branch, but trusts its own wings! Believe in YOURSELF. You should develop the skill of your choice to the excellent level of expertise. At first he could not understand the meaning but soon he made the best spider and it was sold he understood. Now he keeps his hat and head up on his own. Now he enjoy the good times with grace and dignity and being self sufficient is called now a good human being a great artistic. He takes certainly get good rest when sleep.
