Ok, so these days I have been reading extensively about a lot of topics together, and I somewhere made out that everything is so interdependent to each other and made sense. Be it technology, economics, science, politics, psychology and design.Mahatma Gandhi has rightly said ” Interdependence is and ought to be as much the ideal of man as self-sufficiency. Man is a social being”. Everything has a gist, and we see it as we are.
Technology Design Co-relation: Technology has always been revolutionized over design, read Apple. Today’s technology is not only serving the purpose but also expatiating the trends in the industry be it grids, networks, tablets, smart-phones, web applications and various different products including social media and clean-technology giving it a design edge to the rescue. Customers are half convinced over a good design, which is becoming a widening trend. Innovation is a part of design and an idea solving a purpose, making it more efficient. In India, we call it “Jugaad”. That’s how we design our lives, if not technology.
Science- Politics Co-relation: Where Science is trying to change the world, people are becoming much more politically inclined in expanding its scope. One such example, is of Patents. Where Institutions and Individuals are trying to develop products over a little modification and selling it in the market. There is a lot of plagiarism in research of various different sectors and areas. Nuclear weapons are another example, where we see a constructive as well as a destructive use in this advancement of science. This is affecting the world as a whole, and nation in parts. Different political institutions and governments are involving themselves in the research of several fields with the core motive of how that will make them stronger in different spheres. Be it Space Research or Particle Research, everyone is trying to capture and make a mark in different dimensions. Well, to some extent it makes sense as its beneficial for the masses in the long run, but there are always repercussions.
Economics- Psychology Co-relation: As the world is struggling to keep its economies upright, there is a lot of dependence of the sentiments of the nation as a whole in determining the economic prosperity of the nation. Be it the worth of the money when the prices rise (Inflation), the consumer behavior in the Supply Demand ratios or the person’s income compared to the total nation’s income (GDP). All these behaviors are subjected to different psychological aspects in each individual of the country, not just the earnings in businesses, governments and corporations. Economics has always been sentimental in its approach and not statistical. The stock markets drive on organizational behavior, and emotional trends. Serving a society and earning wealth are two different sides of the same coin. One can happen at a time, and are directional to each other.
How this world is so diverse and co-related? Some random musings after a late night idiosyncrasies. But, I am always inspired in between the lines and worlds.
