Is give and take a thing of the past forever?Take parents now in the 55 to 65 age group. Their life was always based on the basic principle of give and take. Those older had even more tolerance than them. They might be 85, but patience was a fundamental characteristic of most of such people.
Today, the spirit of give and take is somehow missing in politics, among political parties and within political parties is seen, day in and day out. Ego problems positively seem to be the root cause of the malice.
Disturbing accounts of men who try to impose their will on others in offices and in their fiancees are pouring in. Women who are highly educated go in search of the "wavelength" and find fault if there are slight deviations from what they expect. Of course, the educated men also go on a witch-hunt for the same " wavelength".
No wonder, marriages do not happen easily. But divorces happen much faster. Where do we go from here? Is our entire society totally devoid of " give and take" forever"?
