21 April is observed as World Creativity and Innovation Day. New ideas and new solutions to problems come to our mind when we think of this day. Leonardo da Vinci, born in 1452, symbolized this spirit of curiosity. He was seen as the perfect example of a universal genius. World Creativity and Innovation Day was established to encourage everyone to dig deep and find their own inner da Vinci.

Isaac Newton wondered why an apple falls down and does not go up. There is a Newton in each one of us. To encourage us to think in the way of Einstein or Jagdish Chandra Bose, we have to use our faculty of imagination and curiosity.

Last week one was surprised to know that there is a colossal ocean inside the stomach of our Mother Earth. World Creativity and Innovation Day (WCID) is celebrated annually to raise awareness of the importance of creativity and innovation in human development. It also helps us in problem-solving for sustainable development. The day is also a UN Day that promotes creativity to achieve sustainable development goals.

Daily we face so many problems in our survival in the world. Just think of how to solve the problem of enough water, food, clothing, housing, and ease of doing things. Every year, Nobel Prizes are given for innovations in different fields. There are stars and planets whose rays have not yet reached us. There is a whole field of knowledge which can make our lives more lovable and easier.

When we look at the Mona Lisa painting, we wonder at her enigmatic smile. We think of Graham Bell, who invented the telephone. Thomas Alva Edison is another example of a genius. Facts are the same, but interpretation differs with each passing day.

Give a thought to the regularity of sunrise and sunset. Think about the poorest man who is worried about tomorrow’s food, shelter, and clothing. There is a vast vista of ideas, innovations, and solutions to each and every problem faced by us in day-to-day life. Scientists, thinkers, poets, philosophers, discoverers, and inventors have made our life happy, healthy, longer, and sustainable.

Schools, colleges, universities, and laboratories need not be the sole creators of creativity and innovation. Each one of us is endowed with a brain. We have to utilize that brain for novel ideas and ideologies. In our daily lives, we hardly use 5% of our brain capacity. Let us stretch our imagination and find out hundreds of ways to solve myriad problems of our existence.

That is the purpose of celebrating World Creativity And Innovation Day on April 21. Never stop learning, never stop teaching. Each day presents us an opportunity to create and invent. So, resolve to have a novelty in your life of ideas and thoughts.

Upon checking, the statements in the write-up are mostly accurate but include some metaphoric or exaggerated expressions, such as the idea of a “colossal ocean inside the stomach of our Mother Earth,” which should be understood as figurative rather than literal. Additionally, the claim about using only 5% of our brain capacity is a common myth; scientific research does not support this percentage as a measure of brain utilization.
