One of the positive aspects of this generation is the mentality of things getting better

We are taught how to think and shown what to see. Where then is our ability to know life as we want it to be? Living in the 21st century I sometimes ask that question to myself. Wondering my capabilities or existence in this era of technological revolution. We are the future of the world but at the same time, the most underestimated of all. The current generation is living in a world of infinite possibilities then why not break the barriers and flourish in one’s own innovative ideas and lead life as we want it to be? During the prehistoric proceedings, mankind evolved from the ape of the animal kingdom but what’s next? Flying cars or Functional Robots? Cardboard Monopoly or Skipping ropes?

It is the millennial who are looked upon to mould the destiny yet to come. Power undefined yet power unutilized. It is our decision that would define whether we are developing or declining. It is okay to mess up and begin from the start but if we continue to follow the path of unethical means then destruction is what would meet us in the end. We have access to unlimited potential aka the digital world. But how many of us are aware of the “rules and regulations?”


The networking world is a tangled loop so it’s important that we are aware of and responsible for our actions for the same. The examples we set today are the pathways for the future generation to be followed. So, do what you feel right. 

Being a millennial is exactly like being a human but with a greater emphasis on the technological world. In the future, we might witness semi robo-homosapien organisms but speaking of the present, millennial are just humans with the un-parallel supremacy over the digital world.

One of the positive aspects of this generation is the mentality of things getting better. We never worry about what is going to happen because we already have a back-up plan for our future. Be it breaking mom’s utensils or wrecking dad’s car, we need not worry about the aftermath because either we can fix them up with our crypto-currency since even a seven-year-old is familiar with online cash or nobody seems to care.     

Dominance over a finger snap                                                    

Millennial is the most spoiled generation of all due to their interdependences. Be it basic household chores or rocket science, we always need the permission of the adults to proceed. Surveys depict that 62% of teenagers cannot choose an optimal decision without an outside opinion. Maybe it is time we spend less on our virtual world and spend more on our real world.

If technology falls into the wrong hands, then what we will face is an apocalypse we would never be able to compensate in the future. Therefore, it is our responsibility to make sure our generation aka millennial holds up the banner of the past ever so high and secures the future to the fullest.
