Remember when we used to make a call by rotating a wheel on the phone and the excitement when we first saw the button phones and chordless phones.

Remember when in summers you went on the roof to sleep and run down to your @ 3am if it started raining !

Remember when going to school with Rs.5 was such a big deal becasue you were going to go to the canteen to buy a Campa Cola (£2.50), Patty (£2) and 2 Toffees (£0.50)

remember when we used to watch giant robot and later Mowgli on DD.

remember when you used to flick your dad's car keys and ask your friends to push the car while you drove it to a safe distance so that your dad does not wake up hearing the car cranking.

remember when we used to play mario and contra on the 8-bit video games and on the brick game handhelds.

remember when you begged your dad to get you your first cycle/bike.

I remember when my favourite hang out on Chennai trips was the consulate area to check out the imported cars.

In Bangalore I used to oogle at imported Corollas, Coronas and Civics.
