It has generally been observed that, these days fewer people possess the skills to do their routine works, such as making their own clothes or repairing their own stuffs. In following I’ll discuss the reasons behind this phenomenon and I will proceed with the current situation in my country in this regard.

First of all, I think the main reason behind this new trend is that, nowadays everything is more complicated. Even the clothes people wear these days are so difficult to make, they are stylish and are made via new fabrics. Another example, consider the vehicle that people are using now and the one that people used to have 50 years ago, which were horse, camel and donkey. Thereby you can imagine how easy is to maintain an animal comparing to an automobile.

Secondly, unlike the old time now people are so occupied. It is unimaginable for someone to spend like 2 months for making his/her own clothes, when it is easily available in the market. Therefore, one would rather to spend his/her time on the work that he/she masters. In addition, due to advancement of technology, everything we need is now available in the market within the affordable price. Hence, the common trend is that people obtain the money from the profession which have the skill, and via that money they purchase what they need.

In my country, Iran, this situation is true for almost 90 percent of population. However, in some rural area villagers may still have skills to overcome their own needs such as weaving or making their own dairy. Certainly, this was not the case 40 years ago and my people at that time tend to fulfill most of their needs.

To sum up, because of the reasons that i have outlined above, the old trend is vanishing and nowadays every work is specialized.
