Choice - old generation versus new generationIn olden days , our life had limited choices. When we were young, our choices were decided by parents. The food we eat, dress we wear, the places we visit , schools, colleges, courses, profession etc were choices of our parents. Even marriages were also decided by our parents.
But the present generation is exception to this. They have better options to make their choices. What type of food they should eat, the dress they wear, which school , college they should get admitted, which course they should chose, the profession, life partner etc are chosen by them.
Most of the people will agree that the choices made by our parents were equally good or may be better than the choices made by our younger generation. Whether it is a profession or choice of a life partner. In olden days people have lead successful and trouble free life with the choices made by our parents.
When we analyze the success rate of choices between the older generation and present generation, the choices made by the older generation is sits on healthy ground. The success rate among present generation is poor particularly in marriages. Number of divorce cases is on the increase. in olden days parents chose life partners. The main consideration for a marriage was family background. As per a African proverb "When the root is deep there s no reason to the wind". Like wise the child grown in cultured family becomes root cause for a successful life.
