Saransh jumped into the bed and said its story time! Mom. But I want to hear a story of neither King-Queen nor animals. Today tell me new story with new characters.
Mom : Hmmm let me think…Krishna’s childhood stories?
Saransh : Not even mythological stories…now getting to see mythological stories on T.V.
Mom : Then…,Invention stories?
Saransh : Hmmm this sounds novel & interesting…
Mom : Before starting actual story, do you know the difference between discovery and invention?
Saransh : Invention means finding new thing and discovery also means the same…right?
Mom : No dear , they are two different terms. Let me explain
Do you remember Ajanta – Ellora caves we visited two years back with your cousins?
Saransh : Yeah, where after walking & climbing we get to see caves decorated with colourful paintings, beautiful monuments.
Mom : Correct! Finding these caves which already existed is discovery.
Saransh : Ok! And invention?
Mom : Creating new phone for the first time is invention.
Saransh : Like I create different patterns out of my blocks is Invention and when I find out my lost block it’s a discovery, Actually I discover and invent, Yeah!
Mom : Ha Ha Ha….. I like the way you related both concepts to your things. But it includes useful to all. In nut shell Invention is creating something new & useful which does not exist while discovery is finding something which already exists but not known.
Saransh : Ok! Got it
Creating something which does not exist is invention and finding something which already exist but not known is discovery.
Mom : Yup! Now its time to retire for the day! Goodnight! Sweet dreams
Saransh : Goodnight! Sweet dreams. Tomorrow Invention story Mom...
Mom : Yes!!! For sure
