No idea!

Here's what I can recall from past. Things I miss,

Remember when spotting a Merc was a luxury in our country.

Remember when Splendor was the only bike to have a 'fairing'. I used to dream of owning one someday.

Also, remember this Phantom, before Rolls Royce took hold of this name. Sweeeet!

Hmm, I think you are missing the point. Teenagers read those books even now. This thread is about things that belong to past and not present anymore.

For example, waiting for Sunday to watch Star Trek and Der Alte. Now you know how moderator DerAlte got his handle.

I still remember my dad trying to watch Star Trek once with my brother and I. Then he turned to us and said, you actually understand this?

Remember when you would walk probably a kilometer to meet your friends even though you were never sure that they would actually be there (cause no cellphone to contact any but most of the time like telepathy you'ld find them at that place).

Remember when you would patiently wait for months to get that particular music album in your friendly neighborhood music store and probably would check everyday if it has come. Remember what a rush it would be to find that album one fine day.

Remember when you would study hard but at the same time patiently waiting for the exams to get over so that you can go play cricket/Football hearts out with friends.

Remember when Shahrukh Khan was not a Big movie star but a funny talking guy who used appear in Fauji in Doordarshan.

Remember when you were considered cool at school if you owned a Hero Ranger or BSA Street cat cycle and going nuts on the BSA Street Cat cycle advertisement on TV (Boom-Boom-shak-ka-la-ka tune) And the the arrival of the Hercules MTB with front Shock absorbers.

Remember when Prince of Persia-1 was the game - the potions, the sword fighting with skeletons, the jumps through the knife-door traps where head would invariably get cutoff, and the cheat codes

Remember Age of Empires and the night-outs - that game got us through college

I loved this game. This game almost made me sit back in college. I still play it once in a while

I used play this late night on office computers (no home PC then) in 1991-1992, even held the TCS-Bangalore record for the fastest finish in 32 minutes. Didn't know about the cheat codes since I didn't get have Internet until 1993.
