      Sketching the Gessler Brothers …
      In both breed and creed, the two Gessler brothers were truly unique. They were artisans, par excellence, but their single-minded dedication to quality and customer satisfaction bordered on eccentricity. With total abhorrence to profit, mass manufacturing, economy of scale, and advertising (the bywords of modern business), the two struggled to flourish, make money, and be recognized as master shoe makers. As per modern industrial yardsticks, the Gessler brothers were total failures, but, somehow, they managed to defy all the ignominy and difficulties that ensnarled their lives. Safety, comfort, and long lasting ability were the hall marks of the bespoke shoes they made for their small number of devoted customers. They scoffed at the one-size-fits-all shoes mass produced and sold under big brand names. For them, comfort and durability of shoes were paramount, not the flashy labels and the big brand names. In the heart of the fashionable high street of London, they made their shoes by their deft hands deriving immense satisfaction, but paltry profits. They unhesitatingly took back shoes if the slightest defect was seen even after long use by the customer. Modern business ethics has no place for unlimited lifelong warranty.
      The two brothers were Germans. This partly explains their passion for quality. Like the great Tolstoy who made shoes with his own hands for his recreation, the Gessler brothers made shoes with their own hands to demonstrate to the world that shoe-making is an art and a craft meant only for the rarest of hands sent by God to the world. One of the two brothers died of over-work and possibly under nourishment, but, for Glassworthy, he left behind a shoe-making legacy, the like of which mankind will always cherish, but can rarely replicate.

    Sir thank you for the wonderful analysis . Also can you please help me reflect the emotional bond between the Gessler brothers and the narrator . Please sir .🙏🙏

    • Satya Prakash says:

      The narrator was obviously a customer with a soul and a conscience. He understood the honour, satisfaction, and sense of fulfilment that go with dedicated manual work. The Gessler Brothers were artisans of the most exceptional caliber, who had perfected the art of making customized shoes. They were brutally honest in their dealings with their customers, and readily owned up and compensated for the minutest flaw in their shoes. Such astounding committment to customer satisfaction bemused and startled the narrator. Being a somewhat self-effacing person, the narrator appreciated the humility and modesty of the Gessler Brothers. He had carved a special place in his heart for the shoe-maker duo. In essence, although the Gessler Brothers got lost in the glitz and glamour of London’s high street, the narrator held the two brothers in high esteem and reverence.

    Sir,I am greatly indebted for your answers…can you help me with an another question…The question states is quality an appropriate title for the story

    • Satya Prakash says:

      Whenever requesting a write-up, specify the word limit.
      Answer .. The title ‘Quality; is surely an apt one, because this story revolves around an eccentric artisan’s extreme dedication to ‘quality’. Gessler brothers survived in this treachrously commercial world because they were driven by their dedication to quality. But, the artisan barely survived, and possibly died of exhaustion and poverty. His craft consumed him. It sounds so tragic that a master craftsman of such skill died so miserable a death. Had the world been a bit more sensitive to the preeminence of quality, the two brothers would have earned name and fame. Sadly, the world didn’t even look at them.
      ‘Quality’ fits the title well. However, other titles such as, ‘A German shoemaker’s singular skill’, or ‘The tragic end to a master shoemaker’ can also be considered for the story.
