Unemployment that’s Good

The launches of Zenbo by Asus, or Alphabet’s self driving car or cloth folding robot and upcoming launches of Amazon’s drones or Silk’s smart home device are surely  a signal to impending Robotic era.  The era surely portrays a sombre  future for maids, domestic helps, delivery men, drivers and other kind of human servants but a brighter future and a ray of hope for unemployed and crest-fallen engineers as there are plenty in India.

Today many students drop out of colleges and schools or take their studies lightly hoping that they’ll fetch a hunger satisfying job by working as domestic helps or drivers or peons and the list of such less worthy jobs continues on and on.

But on the other hand many students pursue for engineering as a career.  They study for complete four years after their junior college. The fathers of these students stake their lands, Mothers mortgage their jewelries and both of them take education loans for the sake of making their children well educated and in a hope that as soon as their child completes his engineering he will fetch himself a job at a reputed company with atleast a modest salary .  But the hopes of these parents are crushed when their children are denied jobs of their level at companies. These students who have been studying for years are rendered jobless with no or meagre income of their own. The land staked in by their fathers are auctioned away, the gold mortgaged by their mums is gone forever and the loan taken by their parents keeps on piling up, so due to these happenings the students are coerced to do less worthy jobs of delivery men and drivers which lowers their self esteem.

Both strata of students, the one who didn’t study and the one who did end up doing the same job and in some cases the uneducated ones end up on a higher post ’cause they were doing that job from before the educated ones, so they are senior than the educated ones.

Thus, the educated ones loose their TIME, MONEY and SELF ESTEEM as they have to go for less worthy jobs even after studying for so many years.

Due to the forthcoming Robotic era no doubt the companies will need to hire engineers and the human servants will loose their jobs. This will help to fetch jobs for the one who is more worthy and the jungle rule, “The strongest may survive” will prevail.

So due to this the who may be thinking of leaving their education just due to laziness will be discouraged to do so and will be encouraged to continue with their studies ’cause now they know that they cant survive on petty jobs as there will be none of them remaining as it will be overtaken by robots. So to survive they’ll have to study which will be for their own good as well as for the betterment of the society. ‘Cause the more educated the people in the society are , better the society is.“I wish the robotic era arrives soon”
