Introduction: (Introduce the topic and STATE your opinion. MENTION reasons in support of your opinion)

Various professionals play an important role in making our lives comfortable. I think artists and scientists have an equally crucial role as the former make us culturally rich while the latter provides us with numerous innovations ranging from air conditioners to electricity.

Body Paragraph 1: (EXPLAIN why artists are important)

Artists are the foundation of human culture and they create paintings, write books, and compose music that make our life worth living. The work of hundreds of architects and builders, for example, led to the construction of marvelous structures such as the Taj Mahal, Pyramid of Giza, and Leaning Tower of Pisa. These structures are a human heritage that all generations relish. Similarly, the paintings of legendary artists such as Picasso and M.F.Hussain are a source of reflection about their contemporary times. Mr. Hussain drew hundreds of paintings that showed the culture of India and the lifestyle of the Indian people. These cultural elements are as important as the scientific inventions.

Body Paragraph 2: (EXPLAIN why scientists are important)

Scientists, on the other hand, innovate various products that make our life comfortable. The invention of air conditioners transformed the manner in which humans work and this increased the economic productivity. Similarly, electricity has enabled us not only to use the evenings and nights more efficiently but also enjoy other inventions such as the television and the Internet. These innovations are as important as creative works of artists in making human lives worth living.


In conclusion, while the artists make life richer by creating paintings, writings, and music in the domain of culture and entertainment, scientists innovate products that help us lead a comfortable existance. I think the two can not be compared and both are equally important for the march of human civilization.
