When we were kids...

The first super hero on TV, I can remember...


Soft drink, you mean colour or goli soda?


Safe and cheap transport to school


You could actually buy stuff with even one or a few of them

Yeah!! I remember Johny Sokko as 'GIANT ROBOT'. I used to rush completing my homework which is the passport to watch this program.

If am right, it was at 8 pm on Wednesdays..... My Favourite at that time.

@ Chriz: tried searching for paal ice pocs, not lucky! but goli soda rocks, still can find it in a few shops around.

@ Daisy Blue: Maybe you are too young or WE R @ OLD! but yes, Johny Sokko was something to look forward to back then

@ Fred: me 2!

@ Dhanya: yup, and it really hits hard when I see the kids around me

JollyRoger said...

@ Oxy: A real pity that Coke discontinued Gold Spot, when they retained Thums Up and Limca, I still remember Campa Cola and the ad that ran for it

@ Zee: had i retained my old dumb boxes I guess they would have some value now, as antiques!

How I liked that panneer soda! It was the treat we waited for after our exams. On the last day of our exam, we got 10 rupees as pocket-money and from that one rupee for panneer soda. I still remember that taste and coolness.

We had the best of growing up and living years.

Joy always,
Susan

Wondeful post, Life has changed, to a very very large extent. And yes, we could actually get something with the money there and not use those to just drop coins in the temple.
