This time while travelling in the volvo from airport to the city i witnessed an incidence, i am not sure if that would be a right word to use, coz it was actually just few people in conversation !!!! So what was so special about them was the amazingly opposite pairs involved in talks with each other.There was this Sr, software engg (approx 30 yrs )from an MNC all dapper in a suave business suit, tuned to the talks of a 65-70 yrs old ex army men now a faculty in some college in punjab. It was so engaging to see both of them talk. The army uncle proudly showing off his collection of coins , talking about almost each one in there elaborately. But not even once did i see the younger one wandering anywhere else other than the conversation,he was giving full nods, adding stuff , they really seemed to be enjoying each others company.
Now coming to the second set of conversationalists, A lady in her 60s , was in talks with a young lad of around 23-24 yrs of age. This lady had just finished her first air travel and was all gusto about it. She was narrating her whole experience to the guy and he was listening to it with full attention and patience.
The fact that i witnessed both this conversations at same time, same place made me really cheerful about the value system of this so called Gen Y. It made me hope that there might be many more like these happening quite often at different places at different times.I was glad to witness and notice something like this, so that if anyone next time comes to me complaining ,”God damn this young generation, no respect for elders” i atleast have two examples to give from the side of my generation.
