  2. Thanks a lot for these ads Gini. How I miss the ads on Indian TV. Did any of you like the Dhara ad, that little boy fleeing home and then coming back for Jalebi ?

  3. good old doordarshan days. nostalgic. it’s funny that i too wrote about an old vicks ad in my post two days back.

    parzaan dastoor in jalebi ad. so cute. then there was this cute little girl who used to say ‘i love you rasna’. another one was baby guddu in colgate. who can forget the dashing shekhar kapoor in digjam? 😉

  4. Anything for you, RP.

    Ramya, I had so much fun digging up all these old lost magic. We were up well into the night finding old ads and old TV music and so on.

    Revathi, I saw the ek lahari song while searching for the ads. It was so much fun listening to all that music.

    Dhara, dhara desh ka dhara…I remember the song very well, but the ad doesn’t come to mind, Sandeepa.

    If only if I could find a link to the egg ad. As a kid, I had egg allergy and any time I saw the ad I couldn’t wait to get over my allergies.

    Shaheen, the post worked : )

    The rasna ads are there on you tube, Reena. Oh yeah, Shekhar Kapoor. My sister was crazy about the ‘Bombay Dyeing’ guy!

    Sia, the ads I like here are the Mac and PC ones, and of course GEICO!!

  5. know what, i just completed a blog on one of those very popular DD ad’s and had been hunting high & low for a video of the original ad, unfortunately still not available…should be posting it this week end!!

    I saw it, Maddy.
