After starting to write a book to tick an item in the bucket list, I think I have a new view on the so called generation gap.
So far my outlook towards the term has been on the difference caused by the technological advancements and the consequent lifestyle changes.
Admittedly the new generation is smarter and they’ve access and skills to do many things the earlier generation couldn’t do.
However, when I took a close look at my childhood days, I could see many things that the present generation could be totally missing.
These may be small things like walking barefoot, climbing a tree, milking a cow or at least watching it, collecting honey etc. But a modern day childhood can have none of these.
The nature is also different, having been destroyed by the carelessness of the earlier generation.
That’s where I have this idea now, of building something around memories for the new generation children to have a sneak peek preview of my childhood, in a small way.
And here I got the name of my book also, which is going to be the same as the one I would build. It’s my way of showing a generation gap, but the name is not generation gap!
