50 things that will take you back to your Childhood days

in: Lifestyle

Childhood DaysHaving born in the first half of eighties, I am one of the millions of Indians who grew up watching Doordarshan, reading Nagraj and Super Commando Dhurv comics, playing WWF Trump cards game, listening Philips walkman and doing many crazy stuffs which would be alien to the children of the current generation. Can you imagine, I spent my childhood without Play Stations, mp3,  I-Pods, video games, 100s of Cable TV channels, DVD’s, Computers, Laptops, Internet, Mobile etc. How did I survive growing up in the  80’s and 90’s? Today, I am going to share some old memories, images and many other stuffs that will bring back to you some childhood memories. Let’s see 50 things that will take you back to your Childhood days.

1. Gold Spot (Used to be one of my favorite drinks in early 90s). It had a catchy punch line – “The Zing Thing.”

Gold-Spot

2. Doordarshan Screensaver :: You remember the “Doordarshan” Screen saver – i.e. nothing on TV , come back later. and the background music— ta na na na na na.

Doordarshan Screensaver

3. Vicco Turmeric Ad :: This is another very common ad that used to be on tv for auyervedic cream, Vicco Turmeric! and the song went like this “Vicco Turmeric, Vicco cosmetic, Vicco turmeric ayurvedic cream ”

4. Nirma Washing Power Ad ::  “Washing powder Nirma, Washing powder Nirma Doodh si safedi, Nirma se aayi”.

 5. Budiya ke baal :: Remember those pink colored fluffy cotton candies that the street hawker used to bring in a pack of six. He would come after school hours and make announcements in cacophonous though sweet voice, ‘budhiya ke baal lelo……’!

Budiya ke baal

 6. Brown Cover on Books :: Do you remember creating brown paper book covers for your new school books at the beginning of each school year?  You make the folds, crease them, and fit the book into the newly made cover.

7. White Bata PT Shoes on Saturdays :: Everyone wore these shoes for “PT period.” on Saturdays. When these shoes were dirty, we would paint them with white shoe paint.

Bata PT Shoes

 8. Milton Water Bottle :: Part of every school kid’s arsenal – along with a giant backpack and a lunchbox – essential for dealing with hot days at school. Given how hard the insulated shells were, they also became weapons in any fights that broke out. Somewhere around 6th standard it became really uncool to carry one around and everyone stopped.

9. Big Fun Cricket Cards :: Big Fun was one of the most popular chewing gums during the Eighties. It used to offer a series of collectible pictures of cricketing stars along with the bubblegum wrapper. Along with the pictures, there was also runs/wickets which the kids would collect and keep score. At the end of the sales promotion, the kids can exchange the scores with some gifts like comics and goodies. Those were the days of Kapil Dev, Viv Richards, Michael Holding, Sunil Gavaskar, Dilip Vengsarkar, Ravi Shastri etc.

 Big Fun Card

10. Chacha Chaudhary :: One of the most popular Indian comic book characters. An old man whose attire comprised of a red turban, a wooden stick, a waistcoat with a double inside pocket, and a pocket watch. His household consisted of his wife Bini (Chachi), a faithful street dog called Rocket and a giant called Sabu. According to the comic his brain was” sharper than a needle and faster than a super-computer!”

11. Mango Frooti :: Mango Frooti…fresh n juicy!

Frooti

12. Nataraj Pencil & Camel Instrument Box :: The famous black and red Natraj pencils and Camlin instrument/compass box.

Nataraj

13. Fountain Pen and Chelpark Ink :: After Std. 4, I remember, I had switch from pencils to “fountain pens.” Fountain pens had to be re-filled once a day which meant we all carried little ink bottles. This also meant lots of white uniforms with spilled ink!

chelpark ink

14. Barf Ka Gola :: Remember eating Barf Ka Gola after school hours.

Barf Ka Gola

15. Onida Devil :: The centerpiece of television brand Onida’s marketing campaign – a green-accessoried devil for the tagline “Neighbour’s Envy, Owner’s Pride”

 21. VCP/VCR :: Last time in 1998, I saw a movie using VCP. A VCP is a player only, it can play VHS tapes but not record. A VCR can play and record.

23. Camera and their rolls :: Each photo clicked after a lot of thought, to ensure no money was wasted when getting a 36 photo roll developed.

25. Rooh Afza :: Rooh Afza was a bottle of Sharbat filled with water lily and rose extracts, raisins, fruits and a whole lot of other exotic goodies. It’s best had with cold milk and one ice cube. This was often served during parties.

28. Do you remember Raja, Mantri, Chor, Sipahi game?

The game requires you to make 4 paper chits and write Chor (thief), Sipahi (police), Raja (king) and Mantri (minister). The chits will then be folded and one of the 4 players will toss the chits for each one of the four players to pick one. All the players will then secretly open thier chits and read what they have got. The player who gets the chit with Mantri written on it will say…”Sipahi Sipahi Chor Ko Pakdo”. The Sipahi has to guess between the two unidentified players so far. If the Sipahi guesses correctly, the chor is punished. His wrist is hit by the Sipahi usually with his two fingers. However, if Sipahi makes a mistake in identifying the chor he is wrapped instead on his wrist by the Mantri.

29. Kanche nahi khela to kya khela 🙂

30. The great game of Pitto ::

The game begins as one team throws the ball at the tower of 7-8 stones from about 7-10 meters away, trying to knock it over. If the thrower misses the tower, he is out for the rest of the game, and another player from the same team tries to throw.

If the tower is knocked over, the opposite team must retrieve the ball, and throw it at the first team, trying to hit then all out of the game one at a time. In the meantime the team which knocked over the tower must reconstruct it, avoiding the ball, of course. The second team may not run with the ball, but may only pass it around, seeking better position to hit out of the first team. This continues until either the first team is eliminated or the tower is reconstructed, whereupon the team cries Pitto and gets one point.

After this, the teams change positions, and the game may be played for as many rounds as desired.

Now the tradition of renting comic, story books and children’s magazines has almost vanished from the society.  Reading habit is vanishing among kids.

Once you are good at spinning the lattu you can try spinning lattu on your palm.

Lattu

Below is an excerpt taken off my mail box and it’s absolutely correct.

When Gulli-Danda & Kanche (marbles) were more popular than cricket.
When we always had friends to play aais-paais (I Spy), chhepan-chhepai
& pitthoo anytime … When we desperately waited for ‘Yeh Jo Hai
Jindagi’ (Doordarshan serial)
When chitrahaar, vikram-baitaal, Dada Daadi Ki Kahaniyaan were so fulfilling.
When there was just one Tv in every five houses and…
When Bisleris were not sold in the trains and we were worrying if papas will get back into the train in time or not when they were getting down at stations to fill up the water bottle …
When we were going to bed by 9.00pm sharp except for the ‘Yeh Jo Hai Jindagi’ day …
When Holis & Diwalis meant mostly hand-made pakwaans and sweets and moms seeking our help while preparing them …
When Maths teachers were not worried of our Mummies and papas while slapping/beating us …
When we were exchanging comics and stamps and Chacha-Chaudaris & Billus were our heroes …
When we were in Nanihaals every summer and loved flying kites and plucking and eating unripe mangoes and leechies …
When one movie every Sunday evening on television was more than asked for and ‘ek do teen chaar’ and ‘Rajani’ inspired us …
When 50 paisa meant at least 10 toffees …
When left over pages of the last years notebooks were used for rough work or even fair work …
When ‘Chelpark’ and ‘Natraaj’ were encouraged against ‘Reynolds
& family’ …
When the first rain meant getting drenched and playing in water and mud and making ‘kaagaj ki kishtis’ …
When there were no phones to tell friends that we will be at their homes at six in the evening …
When our parents always had 15 paise blue colored ‘Antardesis’ and 5 paise machli wale stamps at home …
When we remembered tens of jokes and were not finding ‘ice-cream & papa’ type jokes foolish enough to stop us from laughing …
When we were not seeing patakhes on Diwalis and gulaals on
Holis as air and noise polluting or allergic agents …
The list can be endless …
On the serious note I would like to summarize with …
When we were using our hearts more than our brains, even for scientifically brainy activities like ‘thinking’ and ‘deciding’ …
When we were crying and laughing more often, more openly and more sincerely ..
When we were enjoying our present more than worrying about our future …
When being emotional was not synonymous to being weak …
When sharing worries and happiness didn’t mean getting vulnerable to the listener …
When blacks and whites were the favorite colors instead of greys …
When journeys also were important and not just the destinations …
When life was a passenger’s sleeper giving enough time and opportunity to enjoy the sceneries from its open and transparent glass windows instead of some
super fast’s second ac with its curtained, closed and dark windows …
I really miss them…don’t You?

    Kabhi pehli baar school jaane mein darr lagta tha,
    Aaj har rasta khud hi chunthe hain..!

    Kabhi mummy-papa ki har baat sacchi lagti thi, Aaj
    unhi se jhooth bolte hai..!!

    Kabhi chhoti si chot kitna rulati thi,
    Aaj dil toot jata hai phr bi sambhal jaate hai !!

    Pehle dost bas saath khelne tak yaad rehte the,
    Aaj kuch dost jaan se zyada pyare lagte hai..!!

    Ek din tension ka meaning maa se puchna padtatha,
    Or aaj tension soulmate lagta hai..!!

    Ekdin tha jab pal mein ladna pal mein manana to
    roz ka kam tha,

    Aaj ek baar jo juda hue toh rishte tak kho jate
    hai..!!

    Sachi,zindagi ne bahut kuch sikhadiya..!!
    Na jaane rabb ne humko itna jaldi bada kyun bana
    Diya…

    BAHUT HI ACHCHHA PRAYAS HAI ABHI BHAI…Grrrrr8 job…:)

    @Advaita…

    This is not a personal blog so you will never see anything personal here. However, your logic regarding remembering past memories is completely bizarre and weird. I have never expected such a comment on this article. Anyway, thanks for reading and commenting.

    Aankhon mein agar WEBCAM hota to tasviron ko receive kar sakte

    dimaag mein agar PRINTER hota to khayaalon ka PRINT OUT nikaal lete

    man mein agar BLUETOOTH hota to bhavnaayon ko TRANSFER kar dete

    dil agar CPU hota to sabki yaadon ko SAVE kar sakte

    dhadkan mein PENDRIVE hoti to,zindagi ka BACKUP le lete

    Kaash,
    zindagi ek COMPUTER hoti,to bachpan RESTART kar lete.

    It was a delight going nearly four decades down memory lane. Going down further, we are sure to find Phool Khilen Hain Gulshan Gulshan,Patanwala’s Afghan Snow (Face Cream), Ovaltene, Protinex, Sharkoferol (Health drinks and tonics), Pratima Puri (DD Newsreader), Vinod Dua (host of DD’s poplar Sunday programme ‘Fursat Mein’)and many more. Thanks for all that nostalgic stuff.
    By the way, there are 75 items in this site as against 50 mentioned in the title.

    This is a nice collection! Very nostalgic! No matter how people judge it but sometimes heart really cries to go back to those days when we grew up n to those gullies where we grew up! One set of very ordinary new clothes on Eid gave so much joy… playing cricket with a home made bat… asking dad for 25/50 paise daily as pocket money… riding rented bicycle… waiting eagerly for exams to finish and start of summer vacation, preparing to catch early morning train from Allahabad to Faizabad, travelling in general coach sitting on wooden seats… eating ground nut in winter nights with all my brothers sister… first black n white tv in our home, waiting for chitrahaar on wednesdays… playing in hot summer afternoons n then resting under that old neem tree which stands no more today… making paper toys… saving 5 paise 10 paise 25 paise coins in earthen piggy banks (Gullak) and taking out coins with a small stick to buy something… Drinking water from earthen pots during summers… roads were so deserted during afternoon. Even a passing motorbike was a thing to look at! Going to neighbors house for watching movie on VCR!
    Everything is better now but heart is strange! It longs for the bygone days! A comfortable life in Singapore is not as sweet as the difficult times of childhood!

    Really marvelous and epic post, which today’s young ones cannot get, and even realized. Those days were great which even thinking of those, fills our heart with zeal and happiness. Time was not easy, and can say it was hard nut to crack, but still contentment and simplicity were the charm at that time. Today we have lots of entertainment options, but seems emotions and sentiments has lost for everybody. At that time, desire was also limited but now desire has changed to avarice. No body feels contented, and continue to get more and more. Just we can remind those days and feels proud that we have lived in those.

    But moving and cope with current situation is essential, hence we all are going with current air. Still it was very nice post and thanx to you for wet us with water of history.

    I liked it very much. It is valuable to me. A beautiful glance of my past which is price-less. All the points here I was there. Please keep sharing. I can remember, ‘Gul gulshan gulfam serial, Indira gandhi cremation live on television, A kind of robot, serial, which comes out from a secret place and fight. My uncle kept watching, Rajat Thapar, world this week etc, which I hated the most. we did not have so many entertainment materials that time. Albeit I am happy to be with those. I was mad about marbles, kites, pintu(u said pitto), It made me laughing now.Since, I never follow any academic discipline except enjoying the life full fledged. Cricket special bowling. Another best was Carom, football and chess come after that. Now a days few boys can expect to be so close to nature, trees, ponds, river, fishing whole heartily as I did that time. you made me emotional really. Sorry I have no photos. Oh: let me check those negatives I kept in my head.

    Jab bachpan tha to javani ek Dream tha,
    Javan hue to bachpan ek jamana tha,
    Jab ghar me rehte the to azadi achi lagti thi,
    Aaj azadi hai fir bhi ghar jane ko jaldi rehti hai,
    Kabhi hotel me jana Pizza,Barger khana pasand tha,
    Aaj ghar par aana aur maa ke hatho ka khana pasand hai,
    School me jinke sath jhagadhte the,
    Aaj unko hi internet par talaste hai,
    Khusi kisme hoti hai ye pata ab chala hai,
    Bachpan kya tha uska ehsas ab hua,
    Kash badal sakte jindegi ke kuch sal,
    Kas ji sakte ham jindegi ko fir ek baar.!!!
    …………………………………………

    Kas Aisa Fir Se Ho jaye Ham Badhe Fir Se Chote Ho Jaye.

    Thanx and I miss My childhood days always..

    sir
    there was a documentary type film that was shown in which a girl was telling about the culture of india while travellin in her four wheeler in english.
    Perhaps it was telecasted around 2000.
    Can you tell me the name of that ?

    Thank you very much for showing such memory-lost things.
    They were so lovely that they made me cry.
    Bad-luck is that those days couldn’t return.
    Those days everything felt real.Now,because of developement of new gadgets and technologies,that charm has got lost somewhere, seems chances nowhere to return from dust.

    Great times… no worries .. no tension of the future… a sunday with family and doordarshan… we have more channels now… no family time… my advice is switch off your mobiles every weekend for 3 to 4 hrs.. just get back to family time
