Invention is the activity of investigating
and finding a new method of achieving something, or a new device
for use by people, or a new principle or concept or law that
governs some physical quantities. An invention is a qualitative jump over
the existing implementation. Inventions are the ones that made man
progress from cave man to a a space voyager.
Among the ancient inventions, the invention of a Language
and its script as a medium of communication is the most important invention.
With out a means to express ones views either verbally or by means of writing,
human beings would have been as good as the cave man.
The language made a person do some thing in a life
time and pass it on to the next generation. The knowledge and culture
gained by one generation became the starting point for another
generation. Hence we progressed. We had books because we had a
language to write. Without reading books, even the great scientists could
probably not invent much.
The invention of language has allowed a person to
think better, improve culture, further enabled many discoveries and
inventions. Language enabled people to live together harmoniously and
establish family and society life. A language is very essential for the
development of a civilization.
