Generation gap, is the title that is given if a person of one generation doesn’t see eye to eye with a person of the other. While the older generation is incorporating their values, the younger ones either follow if they find it of relevance, or merely adjust it to suit the prevailing times. While the older ones can’t blame or compare the younger ones as not being as capable/ wise as them, for it’s them who have incorporated the values, the younger ones shouldn’t make mockery of the bygone generations for not being as modern as them.
Everything boils down to a matter of perspective. Same situation elicit different reactions from different people, stranger still, same situation elicit different reactions from same set of people at different times. Here, nobody is right, neither is anybody wrong. A rainbow can be seen as 7 different colours or a single spectrum of white light. Every phase of our life we take cognizance of things differently. An object of fear in childhood, makes for a silly memory in adulthood. Opinions are made, differences crop up, theories are formulated, fights are resolved, friendships are forged, what is it that can’t be done with a perspective? Same perspective or a change of it. Well, the world is a colourful place, because of it.
Perspectives, if not,
for it, there would be only,
sameness all around .
