Every generation is different from its previous one and hence there are a lot of differences, and some of them very important, between my parents and my generation. The development of modern technology, widespread of the internet, easy communication and access are few of the major factors that have cause a great difference between my and my parents’ generation.

A major difference is the mode of communication. If we wish to talk to a friend, we would just text him or call him up from our cell phones. It is very simple for us. But in my parents’ generation, communication was difficult and expensive. Nobody owned a cell phone and the public phones were used to deliver only urgent messages. Unlike us, they had very limited modes of communication. If our friend has moved to some other city, then we may contact him instantly through social networking sites or through phone numbers. But our parents’ generation wrote letter, which took days to get delivered.

Another important difference is the lifestyle and cultural background. Our parents’ generation was never given as much freedom as it is given to our generation. The parents took major decisions of life like career or marriage and the children did not dare to go against them. But our generation takes own decisions of life. Our parents are kind enough to grant us these liberties.

Financial status is also an important difference. Our parents grew up in the immediate post independence era and most of the families were very poor. My parents had to work part time while managing their studies to support their family Where as, I don’t even have to worry about my fees. Our generation is not subjected to the hardships they went through and we are living a much comfortable life.

There are many other differences, but in my view the above mentioned are the most important difference in my and my parents’ generation.
