The Baby Boomer Era vs The Millennial Era
A youngster asked his grandfather: Grandpa, how did you people live before with
– No technology
– No aeroplanes
– No internet
– No computers
– No dramas
– No TVs
– No aircons
– No cars
– No mobile phones … ?
Granddad replied: Just like how your generation live today
– No prayers
– No compassion
– No honour
– No respect
– No character
– No shame
– No modesty
We, the people born between 1940-1970 are the blessed ones …
Our life is 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 sharing the same glass of juice with four friends.
We never gained weight eating plates of rice everyday.
Nothing happened to our feet despite roaming barefoot.
We never used any supplements to keep ourselves healthy.
We used to create our own toys and play with those.
Our parents were not rich. They gave love … not worldly materials.
We never had cellphones, DVDs, playstation, XBox, video games, personal computers, internet, chat – but we had real friends.
We visited our friends’ home uninvited and enjoyed food with them.
Relatives lived close by so family time was enjoyed.
We may have been in black and white photos but you can 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 … and also the first who have had to listen to their children.
We are a LIMITED edition … enjoy us … learn from us … treasure us!
Smile if you enjoyed our era.
