According to Hindu mythology, Lord Vishwakarma (All Accomplishing) also known as Swayambhu Brahman (Self-manifested) is regarded as the Divine Architect of the world. ‘Vishwakarma Suktam’ of the ‘Krishna Yajurveda’ states that Vishwakarma constructed ‘Brahmanda’ (the universe), which includes all the Deities and Demons and is attached to his navel via a receptacle. The Rig Veda uses the very same picture to depict him as the Ultimate Reality, from whose navel all the things emerge.
Lord Vishwakarma is described as the chief architect of the universe. His various architectural marvels are well-documented in Hindu mythology. He had constructed numerous cities and palaces for the gods over the four yugas. As a result, he is also called Devashilpi (Lord’s architect).

He built towns and palaces such as Golden Lanka, Hastinapur, Indraprastha, Dwarka, and Alkapuri.
Golden Lanka: According to legend, Vishwakarma erected the mythical Golden Lanka for Shiva and Parvati, which eventually fell into the hands of Kubera (the god of wealth) and then Ravana when he toppled Kubera during the Treta Yuga.
Hastinapur: Lord Vishwakarma is claimed to have constructed Hastinapur, the capital city of Mahabharata’s battling families, the Kauravas, and Pandavas.
Indraprastha: Lord Vishwakarma erected Indraprastha for the Pandavas on the western bank of the Yamuna River at the orders of Shri Krishna. This arid area was formerly known as Khandavprastha. According to mythology, the palace’s flooring was so well-crafted that it reflected like water and the pond and pools created the appearance of a smooth surface without any water.
Dwarka: Lord Krishna’s capital, Dwarka, is one of the numerous mythological cities Viswakarma created. Although Lord Krishna was born in Mathura, he considered Dwarka as his Karma Bhoomi (workplace).
Alkapuri: Kubera, the God of Wealth, went to Vishwakarma to assist him in finding a place to dwell after he became the God of Wealth. Lord Vishwakarma, then constructed Alkapuri, a splendid city atop the Mandara mountain.
In addition to all the towns and palaces, he is also said to be the creator of heaven. Gods’ chariots and weapons were also manufactured by Lord Vishwakarma.
Pushpak Viman (An airplane with flowers): When Kubera was impotent, Vishwakarma made him a flying chariot that would allow him to travel anywhere he wanted according to his commands.
Vijaya Dhanush (Victory Bow): Vishwakarma created the Vijaya bow for Indra, who used it for a while before giving it to Lord Parshurama, who used it in his battles, and then gave to his pupil Karna. Following Karm’s death, Lord Parshurama regained possession of the bow.
Vajra: Indraloka was once possessed by a demon called Vrita. He had received a blessing from Lord Brahma that he would not be slain by any weapon formed of Pancha Tatva (Five Elements) or wood. Because of this, it became really difficult for Gods to slay Vrita. Ultimately, Lord Indra sought assistance from Lord Vishnu, who recommended defeating Vrita using a weapon constructed from a sage’s spine. Finally from the bones of sage Dadhichi, Lord Vishwakarma created Indra’s divine weapon, Vajra.
Lord Vishwakarma is highly revered by Hindus as the “God of architecture and engineering.” As a result, on the day of Vishwakarma Jayanti, engineers and artisans often shut their workplaces and worship their tools and equipment with Lord Vishwakarma.

The other factor is that the traditional players are very strong in the consumer laptop market. Top 3 players control more than 70 per cent of the market and strong portfolio, distribution, and channel reach as well as brand marketing has helped them massively. "New brands can surely make a dent in the consumer laptop market but are challenged by supply issues right now. Watch out for them in 2022 as and when supply situation eases up," Navkendar Singh, Research Director, Client Devices & IPDS, IDC India told IANS.
Dominated by HP Inc, Lenovo and Dell, the traditional PC market (inclusive of desktops, notebooks, and workstations) in India continued to be robust as the shipments grew by 50.5 per cent year-over-year (YoY) in the second quarter (Q2), according to IDC. Notebook PCs continue to hold more than three-fourth share in the overall category and grew 49.9 per cent YoY in 2Q21, reporting a fourth consecutive quarter with over 2 million units. Desktops also indicated a recovery as shipments grew 52.3 per cent YoY after recording the lowest shipments of the decade in 2Q20.
According to Prabhu Ram, Head, Industry Intelligence Group, CMR, driven by the pandemic and the associated accelerated pivot to remote work, learn and unwind culture, PCs have been witnessing heightened demand. "Despite the current supply chain constraints, PCs are here to stay in the new never normal. In the run-up to the festive season, established PC market leaders will continue to leverage their brand salience and gain market share," Ram told IANS.
HP maintained its lead in the India PC market with a 33.6 per cent share as its shipments grew 54.2 per cent annually. Dell Technologies continued to hold the second position with a 22.1 per cent share and an impressive 86.1 per cent YoY growth in 2Q21. Lenovo maintained the third position with a share of 17.8 per cent in 2Q21.
Arvind Suraj, Research Fellow, Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), said that there is always a trust issue with new brands. "You won't buy a laptop in 6 or 7 months just like smartphones. In this case, we often go for existing players. Brands like Lenovo, HP, ASUS and Acer have already gained our trust," he said. (IANS/ MBI)
