According to the speaker in the poem, the professor, everything is changing rapidly as a part of the progress of our nation and of the entire world.
The professor talks elaborately about how the world around us is changing fast. In the past, people had many children and grandchildren and they took pride in such achievements. But nowadays, we are more serious about family planning. Moreover, new values are replacing the old ones. These are the parts of the ‘progress’, according to him.
