Just a little while ago, I was looking around for some stuff
and found an old phone; you know those handsets with cords – that are now
almost extinct. I just couldn’t help but get a flashback of the most amazing
time, when life was simple, there was less communication, thanks to the lack of
mobile phones, and hence, less tussles. Whereas now, when we have the internet
which is easily accessible anywhere and everywhere – whether it’s your laptop,
tiny mobile phone, or your little tablet that makes sure you have internet – or
I’d rather say, Facebook -right next to you, in your pocket!
So here are some of the most memorable things (ermm... that
should be the right word, yeah? : P) that I can recall – and here goes!
Ainak Wala Jin – there is not a single person
who has grown up in the 90’s (well, it’s okay to be jealous if you weren’t part
of the 90’s fever) who wasn’t crazy for this programme. All of us remember Bil Batori (my fav, lol )
Captain Planet – okay! That was my favourite cartoon.
He was quite a hunk :P and there was Mother Earth who I used to find pretty
scary for some reason because of her long silver hair. (-!-)
TV – Yeah, the television sets were so HUGE and
heavy and it used to be one heck of a task to switch between channels since
there were no remote controls back then. Wow, the children nowadays sure have
some luxuries! :/
They played movies in the afternoon as far as I
can remember, every other day. (I can recall a bit as my daado used to watch them with great interest, and I often used to
get a scolding too if I disturbed her in between, lol. Miss her :( )
Everyone in the family used to sit together and
watch the same program, whether its a boring 9pm news bulletin that started off
with “ sadar ne kaha, wazeer e aala ne
kaha..” and so on or whether it was some drama serial.
Oh and yes – the dramas were absolutely amazing!
– Tanhaiyan, Ankahi, Sitara Mehrunnisa, Dhuaan, Alpha Bravo Charlie, Dhoop
Kinaray and others.
AND last but not the least -there was no iPhone,
Blackberry, Xbox, AND there was no Facebook – life was just a better place!
I am pretty sure you have
hundreds of other things popping up in your mind right now and you have
a BIG smile on your face recalling those times like this --- > :-D
I just thought I’d share up some stuff, been a while since I
