    :hello: After Thoughts from nextgen :hello:

    Chat with a friend yielded these thoughts.
    What a thought provoking (provoqueen perhaps)
    Comparison between two
    "Generations".

    A youngster asked his father: "How did you people live before with-
    No access to technology
    No planes No internet
    No computers No dramas
    No TVs No air cons
    No cars No mobile phones?"

    His Dad replied:
    "Just like how your generation lives today with -
    No prayers No compassion
    No honor No respect
    No character No shame
    No modesty No time planning
    No sports No reading"

    "We, the people that were born between 1940-1985 are the blessed ones. Our life is a living proof:

    While playing and riding bicycles, we never wore helmets.
    After school, we played until dusk. We never watched TV.

    We played with real friends, not internet friends. If we ever felt thirsty, we drank tap water not bottled water. We never got ill although we used to share the same glass of juice with four friends. We never gained weight although we used to eat a lot of rice everyday.

    Nothing happened to our feet despite roaming bare-feet.

    Our mother and father never used any supplements to keep us healthy. We used to create our own toys and play with them.

    Our parents were not rich. They gave us love, not worldly materials. We never had cellphones, DVDs, play station, XBox, video games, personal computers, internet chat - but we had real friends.

    We visited our friends' homes uninvited and enjoyed food with them. unlike your world, we had relatives who lived close by so family time and ties were enjoyed together.

    We may have been in black and white photos but you will find colourful memories in those photos.

    We are a unique and, the most understanding generation, because we are the last generation who listened to their parents.

    Also , the first who have had to listen to their children;
    and we are the ones who are still smarter and helping you now to use the technology that never existed while we were your age.

    We are a LIMITED edition.

    So you better -
    Enjoy us. Learn from us.
    Treasure us. Before we disappear from Earth and your lives.

    A pedantic, err Vedantic but here you go:
    We (soul) have been born before many times, and will be born again. Several lives, hardly matters who has bragging rights :)

    Thank you .
    But then, All souls the unlucky ones are blessed in one form or another whether they are born as any of the species known to man .

    Current old ones are relatively were more blessed when little was more and more was little since it was all simple living and more of high thinking whereas current gen survive in highly competitive complex world have to have high living and high thinking.

    Regards.
