Oddly, that calculus makes me think of how I am actually a creature of the 20th century, how I was defined by its final decades in both trivial and enormous ways.
Youth bears the real stamp of time. We had computer games and television, but my youth was not nearly as suffused with screens as my adulthood. I suppose I belong to that last generation of people who came of age without the mobile phone never mind the smartphone , who remember what it was like not to have instantaneous access to information. The world existed at a remove. It was an object for our active curiosity. There was a necessary effort to knowing; future generations will never know what it was like to wait all those hours to receive the morning newspaper, then flip through the pages to the football scores from countries far away.
We have so much knowledge at our fingertips that its pursuit and retention become less important. Over half the population of the world is less than 30 years old. Many of them will not have one of the luxuries of 20th-century adolescence: the quiet refuge of your mind. I shiver at the thought of what it must be like to be a teenager now, barraged by Snapchats and Facebook posts, having to perform your inchoate self on social media every day. Let me not wave my invisible cane and grouch so much.
Growing up in the late 20th century, I also inherited some of the illusions of the time.
A tale of two Marys – two centuries apart | WAG MAGAZINE
With the end of the Cold War and programmes of economic liberalisation spreading across the world, there was the sense of an endlessly opening world, the notion that a universal liberal order was here to stay. My own politics skew slightly more to the Left, and I grew up with the belief that it was inevitable and right that barriers of race, ethnicity, gender, caste, and religion would melt away, that the old structures of power based on these identities were doomed.
This column appears in a physical newspaper, and most people though certainly not all who read it are probably people in the habit of reading a newspaper, that is, people firmly of the 20th century. But as we enter , I wonder if I can invite you, too, to take stock of your place in time, to root yourself, to explore the assumptions and experiences that shaped you and how they delivered you to your sense of the present and future.
I find it clarifying to imagine my place in time. To think about who you are in a world in flux requires you to make a judgement of the world itself, its ruins and creations, its trajectories and detours. It demands both your humility and your constant engagement. Kanishk Tharoor is the author of Swimmer Among the Stars: Stories, a collection of short fiction; kanishktharoor.
