‘Were Our Forefathers Happier Than Us?’ Essay by 11 year old Bookosmian from Chennai

Our forefathers did not have any cures for treating diseases so they lost a lot of loved ones. But nowadays, we have doctors and medical professionals who help us from diseases like the way the vaccination for COVID-19 has been created.

We have technology and gadgets which takes us away from experiencing life outside technology. Our forefathers had a lot of fun in life as they played many outdoor games and met people in real life, not virtually.

In the days of the pandemic, we have started realizing now that we should have spent more time with friends and family. We regret not using the time we had, to explore, travel and have fun.

Our forefathers were happier than us because they breathed clean air. Nowadays, there is a lot of pollution which harms the ozone layer.

But it is wrong to think only negative of technology. Thanks to technology, we get to study virtually and keep in touch with our teachers and classmates, something that was not there in the old days.

An advantage for us is, thanks to history, we can understand our forefather’s mistakes and learn from them. Understanding what our forefathers went through helps us see patterns that might otherwise be invisible in the present.

We all have our own opinions on this. My viewpoint is that our forefathers were happier than us.
