Generation refers to a group of people who are born and who live at the same time. Generation gap is something which has been there since this cycle began and will remain until we become extinct. It has been a very common trend to blame people who belong to the so called other generation. Our elders reprimand us for being a bad generation and we laugh at today’s children for being a bad generation.
Generation is not supposed to remain the same, it is the rule of the nature to change as change is the only thing which is permanent and it should be. People who are in their twenties now would claim that they had not even used a phone (mobile), even when they were in high school, most of them would. A phone which is available at rupees six thousand now would cost around twenty thousand then and however rich you are or you were, it matters and it would matter. A friend made everything clear one night, we were actually afraid of using such gadgets. One will not be able to deny that, we were very much afraid of the consequences.
Internet is easily available now and children prefer to ask Google about their problems instead of asking their parents or teachers, they are just one click away from all the answers. Google has now become the Gita and Quran. Today children are smarter and are leading happy and easy lives, the definition of difficulty has also changed and that is the reason everyone can differentiate; still there are children who do not get a glimpse of such virtual universe, somewhere in your mind you might think that those children are leading better lives.
The definition of childhood has changed too and the next fifty years might bring out something even newer or the stone may roll back to where it used o be. This is generation and it evolves.
