Life is not a single step process, we go through various phases of unanimity, revulsion, worship and of course accomplishments. In between all this, we face differences of mind, attitude and opinions, what caters to our existence and mutual coexistence is how we face and counter the differences. Most sorts of differences could be rationally filled and sentimentally adjusted, but Generation Gap is an all-time rage which can hardly be fulfilled up to the expectations of the involved.
It is one such type of societal crisis in which we all have to eventually fall into! It is the basis of further unfortunate circumstances in family or where minds are involved, rather everywhere.
Who suffers the outcomes of Generation Gap is not a particular generation, but at times a chain of them. Consider wearing an attire utterly grossed out by your grandparents: who suffers from the generation fights? Not only are you forced to change which makes you upset, your grandparents who think the morality of your generation is threatened, is upset too, but also the less archiving one, your parents are forced to reconsider both the offended groups.
Why it is important to fill this gap is because, we don’t want to be left behind. While the world progresses, we don’t want to be upset with ourselves raising and depreciating the things that led to the progress of the world and eventually the reason behind the comfort we are in. While one of the generation must evolve with the growing times in order to witness their success and improvisation, the other must respect and applaud the reason why the other generation disapproves it in the process of convincing them to adapt.
In a peace deprived world, we have a choice to give ourselves another reason to break world peace and start another level of so called ‘Cold War’ in the form of a ‘Generation Fight’ or adjust ourselves to the changing trends and if not inculcate then appreciate them.
We are inevitably doomed to be hit hard upon by Generation Gap today or tomorrow. There is no escape to it, but there is a way to minimize its effects! However, we cannot ignore the fact that generation gap is the outcome of progress! So, from the optimist point of view, generation gap is a symbol of unfolding success of the generation and a lunge of empowerment.
