Then were ‘Mungerilal ke hasin sapane’ and ‘karamchand’ …’Vikram Betal’, etc.
How did one survive growing up in theÂ 80’s and 90’s?
We had no seatbelts, no airbags..
Cycling was like a breath of fresh airâ€¦
No safety helmets, knee pads or elbow pads, with plenty of cardboards between spokes to make it sound like a motorbikeâ€¦
When thirsty we only drank tap water, bottled water was still a mysteryâ€¦
We kept busy collecting bits & pieces so we could build all sort of things â€¦ and we were fearless on our bicycles even when the brakes failed going downhillâ€¦
We were showing off how tough we are, by how high we could climb trees & then jumping downâ€¦.It was great funâ€¦.
We could stay out to play for hours, as long as we got back before dark, in time for dinnerâ€¦
We walked to school, or sometimes we even rode our bicycle.
We had no mobile phones, but we always managed to find each otherâ€¦. How?
We lost teeth, broke arms & legs, we got cuts and bruises and bloody nosesâ€¦. nobody complained as we had so much fun, it wasn’t anybody’s fault, only ours
We ate everything in sight, cakes, bread, chocolate, ice-cream, sweet sugary drinks, fruits..yet, we stayed skinny by fooling around.
And if one of us was lucky to find a 1 litre coca cola bottle we all had a swig from it & guess what? Nobody picked up any germs…
We did not have Play Stations, MP3, Nintendo’s, I-Pods, Video games, 99 Cable TV channels, DVD’s, Home Cinema, Home Computers, Laptops, Chat-rooms, Internet, etc ..
BUT, we had REAL FRIENDS!!!!
We called on friends to come out to play, never rang the doorbell, just went around the backdoorâ€¦
We played with sticks and stones, played cowboys and Indians, doctors and nurses, hide and seek, soccer games, over and over againâ€¦
When we failed our exams we were given a second chance by simply repeating the same gradeâ€¦without visiting psychiatrists, psychologists or counselorsâ€¦
Such were the daysâ€¦
We had freedom, success, disappointments and responsibilities. ..
