Does someone remember buying vegetables with pocket change and fruits in quantities of 5 kgs especially during summer vacations.
Now we need to think 10 times and need to go to ATM before going to shop for fruits and vegetables.

I happy to note that i am not alone. I wish they played more music and less reality. Reality is hardly real.

Hi everybody
Remember when an ad film used to cost less than rs 1 crore.
The first to break that barrier was MRF radials
Remember when Iridium launched their phones with one of the finest adlines"Geography is history now".Unfortunately it didnt (or maybe was not allowed to)
gain market share.
Remember when in Bombay Rogers with its 32 flavors of cold drinks used to rule the roost.
Regards

I watching a song from an old movie, and I saw this...

Now 100 times more people use keyboard, yet nobody learns typing anymore. Does anyone learn shorthand anymore? My uncle had a similar school, but had to shut shop for lack of students.

Remember filling air for your cycle tyres at 10 paise at neighborhood cycle repair shop. I have a connected anecdote - a school mate (whom I didn't know earlier) borrowed 10 paise from me after a school day in the cycle shed, since his cycle tyres were deflated, and didn't carry money with him. We started our friendship from that day and till date he is one of my closest pal!

Remember cycling 'kilometers and kilometers' (courtesy a famous Malayalam movie dialogue!) to and fro from school in your Hero, BSA, Hercules cycles? Raleigh brand was considered premium those days -speaking about early 80's.

Remember buying 'gas muttayi' (pronounced 'gyaas' -kerala special mint hard toffee without wrappers) from local 'murukkaan kada' (paan shop) for 5 ps.

Will post more later...

A small correction here. The 'Don't leave home without it' tagline was that of American Express and not SBI.' That was a classic ad created by David Ogilvy of Ogilvy Advertising so please let's give the credit where the credit is due. The same man created another super tagline which has also reached cult/ icon status...'at 60miles an hour, the loudest noise in this new Rolls Royce comes from the electric clock'. This was created for Rolls Royce, the finest motor cars in the world.
