40 years ago, children were gentle with their parents. Today parents have to be gentle with their children.
40 years ago, everyone wanted to have children. Today many people are afraid of having children.
40 years ago, children respected their parents.
Now parents have to respect their children.
40 years ago, marriage was easy but divorce was difficult.
Nowadays it is difficult to get married but divorce is so easy.
40 years ago, we got to know all the neighbours.
Now we are strangers to our neighbors.
40 years ago, people had to eat a lot because they needed the energy to work hard.
Now we are afraid to eat fatty foods for fear of the cholesterol.
40 years ago, villagers were flocking to the city to find jobs.
Now the town people are fleeing from the stress to find peace.
40 years ago, everyone wanted to be fat to look happy …
Nowadays everyone diets to look healthy.
40 years ago, rich people pretended to be poor.
Now the poor are pretending to be rich.
40 years ago, only one person worked to support the whole family.
Now all have to work to support one child.
40 years ago, people loved to study and read books …

People like to update Facebook and WhatsApp daily. On one occasion I received a realistic message from a  friend and  realized its relevance today I decided to share; 

WELCOME TO THE 21ST CENTURY!

Phone…..Wireless
Cooking..Fireless
Cars……..Keyless
Food……..Fatless
Tyres…….Tubeless
Tools…….Cordless
Dress……Sleeveless
Youth……Jobless
Leaders…Shameless
Attitude…Careless
Spouse….Fearless
Feeling….Heartless
Education Valueless
Kids……..Mannerless
Government Useless
Parliament Clueless
MASSES.. HELPLESS
Everything is becoming LESS but still our hope in God is – Endless.
