I actually agree with much of what you say here Mahesh and would include cities like: Hong Kong, Singapore and Brisbane as global examples of the point you are making. I do question your focus on the "young generation" here. I understand the younger generations are the future but it seems to me the "old guard" has and will continue to be the major cause of this issue.

Sometimes hard words many people don't want to hear (or even acknowledge) don't win you a lot of friends (or up votes) but you speak the truth as I see it. Our entire North American culture of superiority will and is ending and it will be a harsh landing for us unless we lose what I refer to as our culture of "inherent superiority." You know the one that thinks China could never compete with us because "China only builds junk." Until we can recognize and acknowledge this mental defect as bigotry, it will continue to cost us dearly in oh so many ways.
