Doordarshan again...But From Another Angle!

I had done a series on Doordarshan, sometime back here.  Many people liked it.  I came across this video yesterday.  It is interesting.   It is a collection of old advertisements.  Have a look:



First, you see the old Doordarshan logo, which brings a smile on our face!  Old and leisurely days!  The whole family would sit in front of the TV and watch programmes, discussing about the story together.

The first advertisement is about Nataraj pencils.  I have used them and then my sons too!

Next is about Vicks tablets.  'Gale me kich kich' became famous.  Young Jayanth Kripalani looks nice! I like the young girl too!

Then comes the 'intelligent' lady, Lalithaji! We used to say, 'she thinks of herself as Lalithaji' if somebody said they knew everything! 'Surf ki khareedari me hi samjhdaari hai'...Lalithaji would touch her dimaag (brain/head) and utter this sentence!

'Goldspot Zing thing' was also famous in those days.  Then came Fanta....all those are gone!

'Surf Ultra'...'dhoodte rehe jawoge' became famous!

'Utterly butterly delicious' ....Amul is still going strong!

Then comes 'Lijjath paapad'.  I don't see any advertisement now...but it is still famous.

The famous Vivian Richards' hip dance in 'Vimal' advertisement.  I don't see much 'Vimal' nowadays!

Even now, I love 'Limca'! Very very young Salman Khan can be seen here!

'Buland Bharath ki Buland tasveer...hamara Bajaj'...We had a Bajaj at home for many years!

All advertisements of Fevicol were interesting...!

'Cadburry's dairy milk'...at all ages, we have a child inside us...the ad shows this...very interesting!

'I love you Rasna'...I remember not buying this often because it didn't have real fruit! But the ad was famous!

Liril soap...I think everybody admired the bikini clad girl! She was a happy girl... I read somewhere that she died very young.

'Washing powder Nirma', even now I am singing alongwith the ad.  The tune is so catchy! Sangeetha Bijlani (current wife of Azharuddin) became a familiar face!

Any of you remember 'The Didi show'?  It might be boring to watch now, but it was famous in those days!

Sorry, the video is not clear, but the happy memories are! Do you remember any old ad?
