Indian literature has influenced to a great deal the literary artists across the world. The western world has seen and accepted its impact on its writers more than any other literatures in the world. Myths, images and symbols of life in Indian Literature are so deep and pregnant of meaning that they have been frequently applied by several imagists and poets in their work. People who feel that indirect way of instruction, education and warning may be more effective than the direct one always apply symbols and images. All authors of English literature have been deeply moved by the generation gap between youth and age. They took it seriously and as the real teachers, mentors and facilitators, they started to depict it through their work to create a balance between the two pillars of society. T S Eliot and W B Yeats have also portrayed youth and age excellently in their poems. This papers attempts to reinstate influence of Indian Philosophy on T S Eliot and W B Yeats especially when they depict youth and age in their poems.
