>Roads were filled with Ambassadors, Maruti 800 and few Fiats.
>I loved to watch an Aeroplane flying over my house.
>I read “Tinkle Digest” and “Chacha Choudary” books.
>”SABU” in chacha Choudary books was my favorite character.
>Summer holidays, Dussera holidays, Christmas Holidays… No matter why holidays are granted for i used to land in my Grand Ma’s place 🙂
> I never knew what McDonald’s and Pizza Hut were.
>My mama’s “Kawasaki” was my dream bike. I loved to travel on “BULLET”… (Dug dug dug dug) 😉
>“Maggi” just entered markets and introduced noodles to me.
>I collected Britannia biscuit wrappers to score 100 runs during 1999 Cricket World cup.
>I played “Road rash” and “Dangerous Dave” in my school computer.
>I learnt “LOGO” in school.
>I spent innumerable hours in search of “Mario‘s” girlfriend. 😉 😀
>I thought “Contra” was the greatest invention in the history of mankind.
>I thought my teacher was the most genius person on the earth.. 😀
>I used to say “same to you” if some one wished me on new year or any festival.. 😀
>Shame shame puppy shame….. 😉
