Not quite as Poor as we see
Many a times it’s not just a matter of providence or fate but rather a matter of choice for some people to live a life suggestive of a mendicant or so called Poor. During our quest for Authenticity we have come across with many such artisans and craftsmen who have been so acclimatized in the nature that a layman is very likely to take them for destitute.
This illusion dispelled by countenance of an artist creates a dilemma between a poor in want of happiness and a poor in want of recognition.
- The conscious Indigence of a so called poor craftsman eventually produce the covetous crafts owned by most riches.
- Poor of Industrial Age suffer from scarcity of money and enforced labour but an artist suffers the most from lack of acknowledgment.
- They work together merrily in a place to be called as Workshops unlikely to an urbanized poor toiling in industries.
- The skill and dexterity of a poor artists as we call them can sometimes put to shame the highly paid education.
- They may be deceptive of poor but never destitute of happiness unlike poorly poor.
- There is much to life than just wining and loosing for the people who are disposed to put it in the pleasurable and useful work.
- Chosen paucity of an artist or craftsmen doesn’t reflect the greed for wealth but certainly a urge to be appreciated which is totally in contrast with a person who chooses to work in conformity with the enforced labour and seeks happiness not in freedom but in appraisals in wages.
- When a craftsmen is given to his work he strives for the richness and finesse of his craft and least concerned about the comeliness of his countenance or the garbs he wears.
- Nothing can be more deceptive than the grimacing appearance with a mind full of ideas and hands mastered in their execution. True wealth lies in the brain of a person because even all the riches of this vast world can’t buy you the spontaneity of artistic imagination.
- A person so steeped into traditional and medieval art of bygone era is very likely to look old fashioned or misidentifies by many foppish people as grim but people having an eye for art can never miss to gauge the vitality of so called Poor’s work .
- A potter working in slush, his hands mired in the mud and raiment blotched with clay can be called as poor only by a person who is only acquainted with a poor whose hands are greased and garbs reeks of slavery.
No matter how poor a craftsman look in his semblance but he always makes a thing out of pleasure.
And pleasure always begets nothing but Pleasure
