That '80s Show

Children had trouble understanding what the hell Nirodh was…why all the rain and the singing and the pink umbrella. Grown up had trouble understanding it too, the population kept growing in spite of all the talk and wall painting by the Family welfare department…Jacha Bacha Bachoo ka Baap sab khush all happy under the one big palm. That again is another story.

Vinayak at At the Edge has put together quite a comprehensive collage of life in the 1980s (both in text and images). We oldies should read it for the n-effect and the bacchas to know of the world as it existed before internet and satellite television.

Thanks! Soumyadip
Loved what you did with the images.
I have noticed that you have put the code for Recent Comments in the left side bar of your blog. This in effect is increasing the loading time of Main Body of the blog as nothing else loads until the Comment Code runs successfully. I would suggest moving Recent Comments to the right side bar. This would give the blog an effect of a fast load.

Vinayak: Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try doing that.
