NEW YORK (TIP): Ashok 
Vyas, President of Insight for Creativity LLC — dedicated to spread 
ideas of peace and harmony through creative video programs – and Program
 Director with ITV Gold since the turn of this millennium, has launched 
an innovative televised program titled ‘’Dialogue Generation Square’. 
This lively forum for two-way communication between generations took 
place at Indo-American Senior Center in Queens earlier this month. 
Mukund Mehta, President of the center, said he bucked the prior trend of
 having senior guest speakers addressing their members on subjects like 
taxes, Medicare/Medicaid,
 health, and legal issues, and instead helped organize the program 
focused on riveting discussion of divergent views and opinions between 
two generations, namely, seniors and youths.

 program elicited frank dialogue between seniors and youths on two 
topics – ‘Generation Gap and Technology’, and ‘Respect for Age or 
Knowledge?’ — involving participation by two seniors and two youths for 
each episode. The participants for the first episode were Dr. Himanshu 
Pandya and Mukund Mehta as seniors and Neil Zaveri (finance) and Ms. 
Rajni Raghunath (office manager) as young participants. Dr. Nilesh Soni 
and Mrs. Gopi Udeshi as seniors and Shamik Shah (3rd year student at 
Stony Brook University) and Sapna Vyas (software engineer) were the 
participants for the second episode.

Ashok Vyas stressed the necessity of 
community events involving seniors and youths for better understanding 
and bridging the gap between generations. He appreciated the senior 
center’s enthusiasm and cooperation for participating in the project. 
Acknowledging his viewpoints, Mukund Mehta assured him that the 
inaugural discussion would provide impetus to undertake more social 
events in the future.

In the two-hour recorded TV program, 
Ashok Vyas posed interesting questions to the panelists on a myriad of 
issues relating to the two episodes’ topics generating candid responses 
which brought out dissimilar viewpoints on certain issues between the 
two generations. It was evident that the rapid technological 
developments influenced heavily the younger generation’s quick 
adaptability to the technology compared to the previous generation. The 
unchecked use of smart phones, texting, and social media by the 
millennials shaped their thinking and made them logic-oriented compared 
to tradition-oriented previous generations of baby boomers and 
generation X.

During the lively conversation on the 
topic whether technology bridged or widened the gap between the 
generations, panelists opined that flexibility, understanding, 
involvement and adaptability initiated by the older generation would 
bridge the gap. Although knowledge is vital to command respect, the 
panelists concurred that age should equally be respected, which is an 
accepted norm in our Indian culture and tradition. Interesting divergent
 views were expressed on multi-tasking since a young participant fond of
 multi-tasking personally argued against it whereas a senior favored it 
due to time constraints resulting from a full-time job, traveling, 
social events and household chores.

Frank dialogue between seniors and 
youths divulging their personal life experiences, family events, family 
structure, cultural divide between India
 and the U.S. and the impact and influence of technology stimulated the 
program. Mr. Paresh Shah of PareShah Financial Services, and the father 
of Shamik Shah, the young participant, addressed the audience praising 
the program and reinforcing the necessity of having more dialogues on 
community issues.

Ashok Vyas’s lucid and humorous style of
 shepherding the debate kept the audience spellbound and glued to their 
seats for two hours. President Mukund Mehta thanked him for his 
innovative concept to get together seniors and youths to air their views
 and to bring along his production team of camerapersons on a Sunday.

Ashok Vyas in his concluding remarks 
thanked Indo American Senior Center, and Sathya Viswanath, Chairperson 
of ITV Gold, for supporting this project.


Insight for Creativity plans to organize
 ‘Dialogue Generation Square’ series every month in collaboration with 
various organizations. This will be available on Facebook
 and YouTube. The first two episodes will be shown on ITV as a part of 
the ongoing series ‘Insight Tonight with Ashok Vyas’ on 26th Feb & 
27th Feb at 7:30pm.

Insight for Creativity LLC is founded by
 Ashok & Sheila Vyas to create and promote positive video content.
