Of Course We as a whole are facing lots of challenges these days. Do you ever imagine that these are some kind of short duration problems that might come and disappear forever, as if it were never our part.
But there is something which is our day to day problem, which we can not get rid of easily, which is a part of us since long, probably every second person is a victim from the same ‘GENERATION GAP’.
In Fact it is the major problem between the generations, especially in our country, where people do not really connect with the previous/next generation.
It has never interpreted a serious problem, but has given rise to many of the social evils we are facing today. Let us understand a bit regarding the problem and pledge to make the difference at our level.

What is generation gap :-
Generation gap is a term referring to differences between the younger generation and their elders. Especially the difference between parents and children regarding culture, fashion and dressing etc.
The main reason is lack of communication and understanding.
Fast growing culture.
Gradual disappearance of the joint family system.
People who get addicted to a particular lifestyle find it very difficult to try a new lifestyle.
Misunderstandings and arguments.
Taking sudden decisions such as leaving home, breaking relationships etc.
1.Parents and children must spend some time together regularly and they should try to understand each other.
2.Proper guidance for children from elders.
3.In-spite of a fast growing culture, children must try to understand their elder’s words as they have already passed their age. And the younger generation must know that parents always make us go through the correct path.
4.Parents must try to understand that the present world is not the same as it was 20 years ago. They must give enough freedom to their children.
5.Joint families are also the solution. Because the relationship between children and their grandparents is very effective in bridging the generation gap.
Communicating and being friendly with each other, the younger generation and their elders will not suffer from Generation gap.
