Intro: Gone are the days when as a kid, my parents would take me to the railway station for a journey and I would be most excited about being able to adjust the time on my wristwatch to the second by looking at the digital time clock there. The time that has been ticking on the Howrah station clock is the only thing that hasn’t changed since then. Don’t get me wrong, I am not one of those people living in the past, dreading all that is new and longing for those carefree days. I hated having a conversation with my friends in my living room landline because cell phones weren’t this common then. I got frustrated when I didn’t know the meaning of a word in my class 4 English poetry and I had to go through so many words in the dictionary to find it. Or when I had to look through all of those maps in the atlas, to find out the capital of Finland.

But as our world kept leaving these methods behind, it also started forgetting how beautiful they were. Waiting all day just to watch that one episode of Pokemon at 4:00 PM created way more excitement and left us with much more anxiety as to what is going to happen the next day compared to binge-watching an entire season in one night today. Things have become easier and more accessible. It is surely for the better, right? I wonder what our kids are going to be like. I don’t expect them to understand our old ways, but will they understand our current ways of living either? Or with time to come, even our current lifestyle is going to be obsolete?

We as a generation have rejected many traditions from the past, the way we do things are different, we don’t exactly follow our ancestral style of living anymore, do we? These new ways of living are frowned upon by the elderly, by core believers, or even by mass fanatics, but they’re for the better right? We have learned to reason, not accept what we think is wrong and believe in what is better for our society. But traditions are who we are because it is the only thing that stays even after you are long gone.

The Lakshmi Puja in my house was taken care of by my great grandfather, was made more emphatic by my grandfather and my father introduced it to me. All those three men are no longer alive, but their tradition today finally died because I didn’t think it was of any importance. What if family dinners become unreasonable in the next generation because the lifestyle then demands other important affairs and they completely vanish. It’s weird to even think about it, right? But I am pretty sure, a few years back, no one would have thought that a mother would be surprised to see their kids rejecting what she’s cooked for dinner, and instead, they would just order food from their phones.

Conclusion: I am not trying to preach here, I am not trying to tell you that you should stick to all the traditions your grandparents have taught you. All I am trying to convey here is that traditions are important. Traditions are who we are. Following old traditions aren’t important, just keeping the concept alive is. You can create new ones, you can modify the old ones according to your needs. But there is no difference between humans and other beings if we don’t do something unreasonable and follow them for years to come just to bring love to the world and get everyone closer.
