The School Weekly - 6th November 2017

Generation gap
India, a secular country is not divided by caste, religion, gender etc. But you can make a strong case that one dividing line has actually received too little attention. It’s the line between young and old ones that’s what is called Generation Gap.
A Generation gap is a difference of opinion between one generation and another regarding beliefs, politics, or values. Twenty years ago, Hong Kong was already on its way to prosperity. A survey has revealed that 67% of parents in Hong Kong work overtime and they are exhausted after work. The majority could not enjoy family life or were too busy to spend time with families. Therefore, the generation gap between parents and their children have become wider and wider.
Now a day’s children don’t like someone to poke their nose in their business and they prefer to spend more time on social media rather than in family gatherings.
So, who is responsible for this, the elder ones who is working so hard to earn the bread for their family or the younger ones?
To reduce this gap both have to mutually understand each other and try to spend time with each other. As a parent we should have to explain them about each and everything and let them try to take their own decision instead of imposing them, so that they can be mentally independent. Now it’s children’s duty that they should also try to listen to their parents what they want to make them understand. They might be aware of new technologies and they have their own point of view still they should not forget that their parents are one who made them learn the basic moral values of life. As what is called “Old is Gold”.

The most kindest thing I know,
They do not harm, they simply grow.
The best nature gift ever, 
Deserves huge respect forever.
Our best friends are trees,
As they give us shade for free.
Birds rest on their branches,
And under the shade, rest the cows.
The fresh air is for men,
The necessary gas called oxygen.
Gives wood to woodcutters to sell,
And the flowers gives us a pleasant smell.
