    Chitrangada has written a realistic commentary on the generation shift between the older and newer generation. Today's generation is working 24X7, which was not the case in the older generations, who led a easier life. I loved the poem, which talks about handing over culture, values, and finally the happiness keys from one generation to the next. Every generation is different with its own set of challenges and constraints; And what is required is imparting the correct values transcending across generations. Thanks for this wonderfully inspiring poem Chitrangada.

    Hello Chitrangada,
    This is an excellent response to the prompt. Your story explains how work practices have changed for the present generation. We need to appreciate how expectations of availability have changed now and they must be available 24/7 rather than what used to be the norm 9 to 5.
    The poem is also well-written.
    Thank you for sharing this, Ravi.

      Thank you so much John, for reading and appreciating my response to the word prompt, Generation. The thoughts expressed in my story is what I see around me nowadays. I do appreciate the way, the younger generation handles all the pressure of work and life. I am glad that you liked the poem too.
      Thank you and happy weekend.

        A great response Chitrangada, wisdom in your words, my friend. As you have stated, things have changed so much after the pandemic, which is so different from our work culture. Everything is done at lightning speed, and there is no clear-cut line between working and off-working hours. I feel nowadays they are working 24 hours without rest.

    You are very right, Chitrangada, about the current generation's work ethics. I have seen my younger sisters work 9 to 5. I myself have worked for a similar duration. But when I see my youngest sibling, my brother and my younger cousins who rightly belong to this generation, there is no end to work. They really work 24/7. I am glad your prose and poetry highlights this scenario accurately and wonderfully. Thank you for sharing.

    Thanks, Ravi, for sharing her post.

      Thank you Rosina, for reading and appreciating my response. I am sure that you will find the story relatable, if you have come across some of the younger executives these days. Happy to make my response relevant with the current scenario.
      Appreciate your kind comments and support. Enjoy the weekend.

    It sounds like my nieces, especially one who never rest. She is in college and into everything else. She even works for a Florida senator. I don't know when she sleeps. I will see her ay Thanksgiving to talk.

    I enjoyed this Chitrangada, and I am happy I slowed down to read it.

    Take care, Dear, I see you are as sweet as Brenda sharing and helping others. I wish India was not so far away, so we could do lunch with all these ladies.

    Until later,

    Bobbi Purvis

    Thanks, ravirajan01 for sharing this with us.

      Hello Bobbi!
      Your kind and thoughtful words have brought a smile on my face. How wonderful would it be to meet you and have some chit-chat! I cherish my friendship with all you wonderful and caring friends.
      Good to know that you liked my response to the word prompt, Generation.
      My best wishes to your nieces, and I do admire such hard working youngsters of this generation.
      Thank you for your kind words and support. Happy Weekend.

    Chitrangada,
    You highlight a very interesting fact of this new way of life.

    We do constantly have obligations to meet at odd hours of the day & night.

    The magic of Wi-Fi has changed things.

    I love how you say the older generation needs to accept this change instead of saying
    "Oh! It was not like this, when we were young!”

    In "Generation: Poem"
    you tell us that we need to pass down our knowledge from one generation to the next.

    We need to make the transition a happy one & share in one another's joy.

    Admittedly, I have connected with others in different time zones across the world in the wee hours of my morning, instead of sleeping.

    It's so great to talk with them in real-time, but nowadays I try to send messages during my day time & anxiuosly await to receive their response.

    I honestly doubt that the saying..."back in my day"...
    Ever truly goes away, but I do understand it.

    This is a great piece with a very valid point.

    The future & all this technology is changing the way we live life.

    I'll post a link in the word prompt article.

    P.S. ~ I agree with Bobbi...I wish we could all do lunch.

      Hello Brenda!
      Thank you for the word prompt, and your wonderful analysis of my response. I am glad that you liked it and found it relevant, with reference to the present generation and their lifestyle.
      Connecting with close ones, living in different time zones has become quite common, and we also do it. I find it very satisfying to hear and see them, via video calls etc. The technology has reduced the distance between people, and it’s so wonderful.
      I would also  love to meet you all. What a beautiful thought!
      Thank you and happy weekend to you.

    I think the Internet was a great invention. It's wonderful to be able to communicate with people around the world at any time (provided they have Internet access). People may have to make changes in their routine if they do their work online, though. Chitrangada has raised some interesting points related to this idea. Her article is thought provoking. Thank you for sharing it, Ravi.

      Hello Linda!
      I agree with you that Internet is a great invention, and it has made communication so easy and enjoyable, with family and friends living far away. At workplaces too, the efficiency has increased due to the many options of communication. I believe that the younger generation is using the technology wisely, for the overall progress of humanity.
      I am glad that you found my response relevant and thought provoking.
      Thank you so much. Good day.

    This is an excellent response to the prompt, Di. I loved your poem, story, and the quotes you shared. I love this quote: “Every generation needs regeneration.”— Charles Spurgeon.
    Now before I dive deep down in the depth of the concept of the newer and older generation, I am stuck thinking about which category I fall into here tongue wink
    My youngest brother and I have a 16 years age gap; although I enjoy his ideas, they sometimes sound weird. Maybe a generation gap. Haha!
    Stay blessed, and have a great weekend.
    Much Love!

    Thanks for sharing, Ravi! smile

      Thank you Misbah, for appreciating my response to the word prompt.
      Your comments made me smile. You certainly belong to the youngest generation.
      Though I belong to the earlier generation, I believe in keeping myself up to date, as much as possible, with the views and beliefs of the younger generation. I am curious, progressive and ready to learn, and don’t want to lag behind.
      Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts.
      Have an enjoyable Sunday.

    Chitrangada, I thought your poem was such a timely piece for the changes in our lives, especially with this generation. The differences between the older generation and this generation are significant, and you covered that vey well. This is a very good response to Brenda's prompt.

    Thanks for posting Chitrangada's article, Ravi.
