Mmmmm... don't get the idea of what a person's birth has to do with meeting people.

But then, I admit that I understood nuts of what was said, especially since it is coming from a person (or boy / baby) born in the 21st century.

Maybe Nandishpal has something up his sleeves. I am all eye's over here.

PS: I was born in the previous century!

EDIT:
Wah! Two more posts while I was thinking hard of how to respond!

PradSter, You are not alone! I share the same "What" with you!!!

I disagree with you Nandish!!
I believe the best time to be born in India was between 1975 to 1985. This is because:
The people born before this period did not have the following benefits:
1. The people born during this were born in Independent India, so were saved from the misfortunes of the slavery.
2. This was the time when the country has overcome the burden of 200 years of slavery to a major extent.
3. This time frame people did not have to go through Emergency (or they were too young to understand the impact of the emergency)
4. The country has developed to a great extent and we were reaping benefits of Green revolution and industrial revolution.
5. This was the time when technology was improving and the same time becoming cheap. This is why we all have become good enough to buy two/four wheelers, computers, mobiles etc.
6. The people born in this particular period have seen cheap and some quality education. The same education facility was not available to the people before this time period.
This is basically to say that the people born before this time frame are using these features but they have seen few years at least of the days when food was not abundant, there was political crisis, wars where we lost our territory and the young generation was not sure of their future.
The people born after this period did not have the following benefits:
1. The quality of education has gone down. Even though it is easily available, the problem of abundance has made sure that even people not good for the degree gets it (Take engineering for example).
2. We have lost our grounds on moral terms. The quality of entertainment has gone vulgar :( and the things which were part of our culture have given way to extremely unacceptable things.
3. The problem of abundance, again, has led to insufficient infrastructure. So even if you have a car you are unable to enjoy it because of the abundance.
4. The political insecurity again. People who make the government are those who vote for 20/- or a plate of tandoori checkand the whole politics is running on the Divide and Rule policy.
There are a lot of things to add and I am losing the plot. So I will keep on posting when I get more thoughts.

hey guys,
i don't think it is difficult to know the idea of what i have written
i am talking in context of human values & technology.

sinha you got my idea right.guys this is what i mean.
are you happy enough to have the life at the right time.
we dindn't have technology in our past as we have today.which is made our life miserable to an extent.we had human values in the past.now you can see most of us want to live in a neucleus family.where as this was not the scene a few years backfuture is going to be more of technology & gadgets.will we have the same human values.
just to tell all of you most of us have forgotten to send postcards which has its own value.would take 25 days to go from south to north but was priceless.

I was born in 1973. Sadly, I was not saved from the misfortune of slavery. My parents could not wait two more years to reap the fruit of their marriage.

When I was two years old I was sold as a slave for 3 over-ripe bananas and half a papaya to a fruit vendor. This was the disadvantage of being a reaped fruit. After this slavery was abolished.

Woe is me.

You do realise that to be born in the 21st century, you would have to be under 9 years old right?
