Varied difference in opinions or Generation gap?There is a commonly used underlying term among us and our elders that we call "Generation gap". We, the children of the twenty-first century have been using it to define the difference between our thoughts and opinions from our elders. Our living styles also differ from our elders, and if they instruct us at any point and we cannot consider it, we call it a generation gap.
Maybe this term will also be used when we will become grandfathers or grandmothers of our children. But what does this generation gap really defines? Is it the same what I just said or somewhat differs?
Our values also slightly differ from what our elders have been following. We are less disciplined than our elders are. We are quite lazy people and do not listen to our parents. At their time, they used to be very active and did their work on time and always listened to their parents.
But we are just not able to follow that. We lack the politeness still in us, but our elders have still imbibed it in them.
In terms of relationships, we people are less interactive and are more of a homesick, while our elders have always taught us and have been maintaining healthy relations with the relatives and also the neighbors. We want to stay away from all this.
In festival celebrations, some of us do not believe in rituals. But our elders have been whole-heartedly following it. Maybe it is all about the living style has changed all of us.
What are your thoughts on this?
