The Change

This Post is written for the Incredible Blogger Marathon Challenge. The challenge has 10 tasks and this is the ninth one.

IBMC #09: The Be a Baby Challenge is a challenge as described below:

As a baby everything around is new to them. They slowly learn things by keenly observing how each and everything is done. It’s a pleasure to watch a baby learn new things. They learn that they need to cry to get something. They learn that they need to put forward their hands to reach out for something. Many such slow incremental things accumulate in order.

Now the task is if we were to see something with a fresh new perspective, what would be it? Give a baby step to something and explore this new perception and dimension with your engaging thoughts. You can give a fresh meaning to a new word, sentence, concept or anything weird or meaningful. (Check the link for more)


Here goes my prompt:

My take would be on the conception of how the system and government works. I believe there would have been wonders if the government provided the vital amenities; food, clothing and shelter free to all and one worked only for the luxury and other benefits. I believe there would have been many, more than many, who would be happy with the basics and spend the accessible time working on their passion. There would have been a lot more inventions and discoveries making this world a happier place. An ideal station where there is no hierarchy at work place and talent takes the lead.  

There is a concern that many would have got lazy and died early with no activity to mind and brain, but in that way there would have also been no one who died of hunger or economic conditions. The pros and cons are debatable but we can always look at the shiny and brighter side.

Feel free to take up the challenge if interested.

    • Kind of a meritocracy. Or any Phenomenon where one can actually utilize the potential to fullest. Ageing and growing up puts ahead many responsibilities for which one has to make several sacrifices. My thoughts were more about how can we still go ahead and make the work place a better one!

      I do have read the quote by Amartya Sen. 🙂 Glad you shared it. Thank you for your thoughts.. 🙂

  1. Though I really like the idea of government providing the basic amenities for free and individuals working in a environment where they can pursue their passion instead of running in a race where they have to earn bread for themselves and family, which mostly involves doing something which is not one’s passion or maybe something which is a respectful profession in the eyes of the people and gives bread and butter more easily and faster than ‘passion’ would give.

    But a thought crept my mind , how can the government give anything for free unless there would be tax paying citizens who would fill govt reserves to provide all such amenities.I don’t know that would work a scenario where basics are free, and people Dont work or earn enough to pay taxes.

    • I am happy to discuss on this. In the scenario money would not make a greater value in the society. So things would be cheaper than expected. But people who produce do get the sufficient. Generally its always the tax payers money. May be money can pour in by the passionate products one produces.

      Also, alternatively, people who are in basic amenities line supply to government and then distributed. They in-turn get other benefits. Its like give and take!

      Thank you for the thoughts. I was happy reading your comment.. 🙂
