The poem is about the differences in the way of life of the older generation and the present generation. A grandchild is asking his grandparents how they lived before modern gadgets like air- conditioners and the telecommunications were invented. The grandparents say that they were ignorant of modern technology and so they lived without them. But, unlike the present generation, they did not have environmental and emotional problems like pollution and stress.
