Retrospect (in hazy technicolor) - I

I received a forward titled 'Flashback to the good old days'. It was about the Doordarshan and the serials that we grew up with. It made me really want to find out if these serials and ads could still be viewed. Well I was in for a surprise!! Didn't require heavy googling at all! Btw, if I haven't mentioned it already, I love the internet and I soooo love youtube. I found episodes of serials too! That will be next post. For today, the songs and ads that, for me, brought back a rush of memories. Here you go:

Mile sur mera tumhara:



Hamara bajaj:


Ek anek:


Bharat ek khoj: (Title music)


Jungle book: Jungle jungle baat chali hai

Liril

Rasna: I love you rasna

Surf: Remember Lalitaji?

Vicks: Gale mein khichkhich

Lijjat papad

Doodha hai wonderful: I used to hate this ad coz lectures followed!!

Amul butter

Goldspot ad

Natraj pencils


And finally:

Feels like you are 8 again and back in the idyllic times, na?

Update: Found another ad that I really wanted to see again:
Cadbury:


Oh, and I found a really good blog who is crazy enough about this channel to write exclusively about it. Check it out here.

If finding these videos were easy, here's the tough one. Let's see if you can find this.
There used to be an advertisement of this guy, Aman Verma who was trying to spread a message on safety, once for a speading bike, then same person in a metadoor. One of the famous line goes, "koi farak nahi padta"... "farak to padta hai bhai, railway crossing pe hamesha savdhani barto"...

@Varun: Dude, aap mahaan ho. Aapka koi jod nahin. Aise aise cheeze aapko kahan se yaad rehti hai, pata nahi. Sorry dude, you might have to google that yourself. At least I new what I was looking for when I searched for the other ones - this, no clue at all!

@Anon: Well like I said, serials would be the next post. And it is. Check it out :) And Sarla Maheshwari!! Wow, you have a great memory!
