Nothing beats the ingenuity of childhood memories and if you are going through a rough patch, you have all the reason to take this trip down memory lane and relive the freshness of our childhood days.
Those days, life was simple. There was no commotion of mobiles and having a landline at home was novelty. Your easiest mode of connecting with friends was through paper made airplanes that carried messages. Your best game was in the backyard playing football, kabaddi, marbles, cricket or badminton. Video games had just started to come in the market and your best chance at it was at your rich friend’s house. If you were lucky to have one at home, your supply of friends visiting home remained endless.
It is often said that while children of today have sharp skills owing to easy accessibility to gadgets that sharpen your intellect, children of the nineties were more creative since they made the most of what was around them. Most of their playthings were non-electronic. And TV shows were in their starting days of Doordarshan.
And here is what sharpened their skills most:
- Big Babol/Big Fun
- Chewing the bank end of the pencil
- Kismi Toffee Bars
- Knots and Crosses
- GI Joe
- Sony Walkmans
- Cassette Collections
- Stamp Collections
- WWF Cards
- Nataraj Geometry Box
- Diwali Pistols
- Paper Boats/Paper Airplanes
- Hand held Brick Games
- Mango Frooti
- Camlin Sketch Pens, Color Pencils and Paint
- PingPong Ball
Here is a tribute to the relentless discovery of the nineties child, who knew they were luckier than their previous generations, but did not know what lay ahead of them in life.
