#POST 0037


Ever since I saw the old Jalebi ad on Anant Acharya's Facebook wall, I have not stopped thinking about Indian Television and the shows/advertisements/jingles that we used to watch in ’80s and early ’90s. If you are like me, then it is likely that you miss these old times much more and can’t wait to catch a glimpse of these.
(Btw...the two kids above are now known as Shahid Kapoor and Ayesha Takia)

1. Ek Titli Anek Titli - An old song that talks about the strength of unity.

2. Mile Sur Mera Tumhara- 
The objective of the video was to instill a sense of pride and promote unity amongst Indians, highlighting the different linguistic communities and societies that live in India. Created in 1988 by Doordarshan.

3. Humara Bajaj Ad- Buland Bharat ki Buland Tasweer
We hardly get to see such genuine, patriotic ads these days!
4. Jalebbi  (Dhara Oil)  - 
Its hard to decide what is more better, the Jalebbi, the kid or life itself

5. Old Classic Indian Ad for Cadbury - Kya Swaad hai Zindagi mein !!
Cadbury sure still continues to make lovely Ad's...but this one propelled the love for what we called Anniversary Bars

6.Pepsi - Yeh Dil Maange More was coined
SRK, Rani and Kajol fresh after Kuch Kuch Hota hai, and a rather slim cute looking kid (recognise him as Shahis Kapoor)
7. Piyo Wonderful Doodh - Sparkling the White Revolution
 Garmi mein daalo doodh mein Ice...

8. Jungle Book - Chaddi pehen ke phool khila hai
The time when Mowgli was the only cartoon we knew of

9. Doordarshan - Signature Montage
The time before Zee TV, Star Plus became the norm. When "Sorry for the Interruption" was a norm
10. Old Fevicol Ad - Fevicol aise jod lagaye, acche se accha na tod paye
....and u recognise this man now as Rajkumar Hirani
11. Chal meri Luna 

11. Pan Parag - Pan Paraag Pan Masala
The legendary Shammi Kapoor, Ashok Kumar et all

12. Dabur Lal Dant Manjan - Raju tumhare daant to motiyon jaise chamak rahe hai...

13.Bajaj Bulbs - Jab mein chota Baccha tha, badi sharart karta tha...


  1. which advertising agency made " cadbury - kya swaad hai zindgi mein " commercial....

  2. Could you please post "Shringar Kajal" ad from 80s. It had such a melodious song .

  3. I study somewhere that Bale lost the bodyweight for that Machinist
    by starving himself and smoking to subside appitite. This intense
    case cannot be healthful.
