How does a cell show division of labour? Is there any parallelism between working of the cell and our society?
A cell consists of several organelles like plasma membrane, mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, ribosomes, Golgi apparatus lysosomes, vacuoles etc. Every cell organelle performs specific functions. For example – plasma membrane controls the entry and exit of vital molecules, chloroplasts synthesize food, ribosomes help in protein synthesis, mitochondria convert glucose into energy etc. This shows that there is division of labour in a cell. Likewise, human society also has specific set of people to perform specific tasks. For example- police and security personnel’s control entry and exit of people in the city, city planners design and develop the infrastructure of a city. In this way masons, electricians, carpenters, plumbers, transporters scavengers, traffic controllers, teachers, doctors, farmer, shopkeepers, managers, security persons, all have some specialised job/ task to do for the human society.

Medical science took a giant step forward when it declared its capability to store stem cells. Stem cells can be used later on to treat certain diseases if need arises. Along with many Western countries. India also has the facility for storage of stem cell and for use of the same for therapy. Scientists’ are trying their best to maximize the benefit from storage of stem cells.
