We asked readers to provide us with valuable feedback on the generation gap that resists in today’s society. They sent us numerous – and some thought-provoking answers – but this is the one that stood out from the lot.




Winner: Divya Haridas


The generation gap is happening all over the world all of the time. Members of the younger generation are highly ambitious and intend to make something of their lives. The older generations used to depend on jobs that centred on agriculture whereas the new generation is comprised of young, qualified professionals employed in Oman and overseas. In short, today, the younger generation is qualifying and achieving technically, professionally and economically day by day.
