Traditional Societies are changing-and how !

I  come from a traditional society which used to respect and honour senior citizens and silver hair. But as with so much else, we live in a constantly changing world where the old norms are losing their meaning. Yet I refuse to descend into bathos and lament the days gone by. The present is all we have-and like the old saying goes "The present is a gift-cherish it before it becomes the past".

The nuclear  family is here to stay. But I am also discerning faintly the disllusionment with the youth-centred world -or is it wishful thinking ? Whatever, let us seize the present-because who knows when the sands of time run out?
