Studying <http://www.catb.org/esr/faqs/smart-questions.html> will
help you interact more effectively here.  A translation into Hindi

I wonder whether some of the problems you use those applications
to solve could be solved instead by coding Python scripts.  At
first the change in strategy would feel cognitively disruptive,
but eventually should become more powerful; compare switching from
composing a GUI layout with a visual tool to using Tkinter.pack().

We might have more specific ideas if we saw some examples
of the problems you use those applications to solve.

That should be enough for steady significant progress.
