Our childhood would have been too boring without these businesses
There was some aunty, uncle or bhaiya in everyone’s life as a kid who has played an integral part in making our childhood awesome.
We have come a long way in our fast-paced lives. In our so-called busy schedule, we don’t even get time to think about our past. The past, where our childhood happened and we made some of the best memories of our lives. Everything we enjoyed out there, came into our hands through some shopkeeper or vendor. There was some aunty, uncle or bhaiya in everyone’s life as a kid who has played an integral part in making our childhood awesome. We as millennials will never forget some businesses of our times which made our childhood absolutely awesome.
In those days, telephones were in lesser homes and even if it was there, there wasn’t any privacy. And not everyone was fortunate enough to have mobile phones. PCOs were the place where guys used to propose their girls.
Internet was still a new thing and broadband connection used to cost a fortune. Agree or not, but the majority of the millennials have learned social networking in cyber cafes. Remember spending hours on Yahoo chatrooms and reading scraps of your crush on Orkut? And yeah, notorious ones have also explored the world of porn in cyber cafes.
There was ice cream but we also had the option of kulfi. We still miss the taste of desi kulfi which used to cost just Rs 1.
Video Game Parlour
There were no play stations in our homes. We used to buy coins to play games in the video game parlor next door.
With the slow internet, torrents were still an upcoming thing in our childhood days. Our idea of entertainment was to rent pirated CDs or DVDs of movies. Watch and return.
We may have forgotten the taste of Banta but the fascination of a marble-stoppered bottle still alive in our hearts.
There is no childhood without comic books. Either we used to rent it or save money to buy our favorite comic book.
Nostalgia creeps in! Right?
