-Rajmeet Ghai

With the advancement of technology, luxury and a palette of options available, the younger generation are naturally practical. They need not take extra efforts to a practical approach.


  • They are optimistic and ambitious.
  • Earlier on, people fell easily for emotions whether it was for family or friends. Today’s youth can equally balance emotions.
  • Science has made life very easy for the generation today. Accessing someone today isn’t as difficult as it was earlier, when people relied on telegrams!
  • Even though the younger lot is considered to be impatient, their impatience is because they don’t want to waste time.
  • The young generation wishes to explore all possible horizons.
  • Thanks to the social networking sites, younger generation is more enterprising. Their ides are practical.
  • Due to the adverse competition, their practical perspective leaves with no time for ethical issues like ego, arrogance, emotions etc.


  • Most of the times over smartness shown by youngsters put them in trouble.
  • Older generation has seen life and hence they know the pros and cons of every situation. They have a natural ability to do so.
  • Older generation can better judge people since they have met so many in their life.
  • Due to their over practical nature, it puts them more in depression and hence suicide rates are more.
  • It is seen that most of the crimes are committed by the younger generation who get influences from TV and cinema.
  • At times the greed of money and publicity makes them do something they are not supposed to.
  • Older generation being more practical and intelligent can easily point out the difference between wrong and right.

All said and done, a generation gap will always persist. Youngsters of today will drive the world tomorrow. With the advancement of technology and ease of living, generation to come will be even more practical!

Group Discussion- Younger generation more practical than older generation

Younger generation is obviously more practical as there has been introduction to new technologies which were not available to the older generation. Youth has become more enthusiastic on learning the practical way of living. There is an enormous difference in their ideologies.
They have become more mature and do not hesitate to take some important decisions regarding their life(which includes their family). They are not even afraid to dream as they know that they can practically fulfill it with their efforts and use of technology. There is a huge generation gap separating these two generations and this is there to stay.

Group Discussion - Practicality

It is actually difficult to compare the practicality of two generations because the environment in which they have grown up and lived are different. The people in older generations cared more for each others emotions. There were lesser number of crooks, so people could more easily believe each other.

With the rise in population, the competition increased and people got more exposure to what others were doing and they became less emotions driven while being more driven by the results- which we sometimes call practicality.
