Summer of 99


Seeing the little kids enjoying the summer vacation brings back the memories of stolen childhood. I would always love to be the little boy dallying around with not an ounce of care or remorse.

Cricket at wee hours of the morning
Breakfast at unearthly hours
Fishing
Watermelons
Jungle book
Tales Pin
Duck Tales
Lunch at friends place
Stolen Mangoes
Aimless wandering
Comics
Phantom
Mandrake
Dooba Dooba – Silk Route
Oh Sanam – Lucky Ali
Sea Hawks
Tele Match
ChandraKantha
Knight Rider. The one with David Hasselhoff not SRK. I dint know this guy’s name until I saw him in you know what... C’mon who gives a damn about talking car; I wanna see the blondes in slow motion.

Man we were killing time
We were young and restless
We needed to unwind
I guess nothing can last for ever

And if I had a choice
Yeah I would wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life
Back in the summer of 99

Yeah... I remember Knight Rider.... I heard that in 2008, a new series was also started.

For me it was Tintin Comics and eagerly waiting to see the film adaptation by Steven Spielberg

Highly nostalgic! You made me miss those days too. Those days were the best. We (the children of the house) used to make mud cakes back then and get all dirty by the end of the day. But the good part is, we didn't care how shitty we looked back then!
