Memories of yore – Door darshan

Haawa meeti tu aaja purab se, toofan tu aaja re paschim se……gues sit was stoneboy…story of a guy who is invisible…..

Mile sur mera tumhaara toh sur bane humaara – with a plethora of childhood idols. Kapil, hirwani, balamurali, some cute mallu mahout, a hoarse singing punju on tractor….

Ek chidiya….anek chidiya……Sukkhi can tell about this better than anyone else

Junoon serial – horribly translated in tamil – kadhal vasa patu varuvaen pidivaadham….

Chandrakantha – Sunday blockbuster with kroor singh and his yucku…..

Non stop nonsense – a dd2 comedy…guess used to come in the Tuesdays

Byomkesh Bakshi – our native Sherlock holmes

Somewhere long back I also remember having seen Mruganayani and being in crush with Pallavi joshi

Then there was this thing about women in airforce – Udaan

For comedies we had Flop show, Dekh Bhai Dekh, Zabaan Sambhal Ke, Zamaana Badhal gaya hai. Tiku Talsania was our entertainer nonpareil

Faint memories of something like Gul gulshan gulfaam (I know I have made a hotch potch name) was some serial with khulbhushan kharbandha I think.

To ensure we didn’t forget our past, we had Bharat Ek Khoj

No childhood memories can be over without –

  • Jungle jungle bath chali hai patha chala hai, Chaddi pehen ke phool kila hai phool kila hai
  • There was this cartoon about a Big bear and a smaller one (I forget its name). Hindi based only
  • And of course, the Uncle Scrooge and his nephews

Sundays would start with Rangoli and end with Superhit Muqabla

  1. Aha!!! You stole my idea. Pozhachi po. The bear cartoon was called TaleSpin. And how could you forget the naughty evergreen Swami and his Friends.. I love the way the Paati's character says Chaaami.. :)
