I believe every day somewhere in the world this happens, A person goes to a shop to buy an item that the shop owner doesn’t have it. It could be a regular customer or a random customer, probably if other people have been asking for that same item the shop owner would most likely note it down and try to get it so his customers can buy the item from his shop.
A few days after that same person or someone else comes to ask for the item earlier unavailable, this time around the shop owner proudly tells him/her that it is (now) available.
This is how the society moves forward, We ask for something based on our preference and the other person who might not even know about it is compelled to find out about it or gets it for us. It could be a flavour of ice cream, a food item, a device or even our rights. Asking for what we like or want seems normal and overlooked but it’s the way the world has progressed thus far.
Malala asked why aren’t girls allowed to go to school, Martin Luther King asked why aren’t whites and blacks treated the same way in America, Jan Koum asked why couldn’t people send instant messages to each other without paying. What are you asking for that isn’t available yet?
