Q.

Old people usually over-estimate their knowledge gained thru experience, and criticize the ways of the young in not following their advice. But they dont realise that the young are born with better talents and aptitude for present day life, and old experience may not work in the new set-up as they expect. Any say?

They should accept all good changes in our life as change is a continuous phenomenon.Any person who fails to adjust with the change remains obsolete.

Well old ppl..!! i think i wud like to say the experienced one.....offcourse the time and the era has changed...and the young ones can handle it in a better way.....but the expereince needed for a peacefull life has never changed.....the values of life never got changed....and to be successfull in evry walk of life...one needs the refferrnce for not committing the mistakes...and that very reffernce cms frm.....the so called EXPERIENCED OLD PPL....so i knw its difficult to make them happy with your onw way of handling things ......but it is much easier not to annoy them with our extra belief of being mordern.....at thoughts and deeds.......!

Old ppl of today were young one day....and at that time they also were underestimating their old predecessors ... they were also thinking that their old predecessors are good for nothing...and they were too full-fledged in intelligence talent and aptitude for their present day life....and old experience would not work in their new set-up....but they did realise how wrong they were only when they became aged and experienced....this is the go of life....that Young men think old men are stupid, but old men know that young men are stupid......
