It’s been decades since Doordarshan came into our lives. But the nice thing is that while we have changed, Doordarshan is still the same. If you ever want to re-live the 90s, you don’t need a time machine. Just tune into YouTube and you’ll be back in touch with Mowgli, Daaya-Baaya, Ballu Mal Shah and Chitrahar.
But while that satiates your quest for nostalgia to a certain extent, there’s still something missing. Yes, we’re talking about the ads. Ads from back then had a certain charm altogether that is somewhat lacking today. Take a look at just what we mean.
1. Dhaara Cooking Oil
I don’t know if Dhaara is still available in the market but this ad captured our childhood’s plight. How our favourite food always foiled our plans to run away!
2. Bajaj Scooters
Till today when I see a Bajaj scooter, I subconsciously hum “Humara Bajaj”.
3. Washing Powder Nirma
Have you seen a yellow colour washing powder?
A heartwarming commercial that will always bring a smile to your face
5. Bajaj Bulbs
Everyone can relate to this commercial, no matter how old they are!
6. Lijjat Papad
You don’t need a celebrity to sell your product – just a catchy jingle and a cute rabbit.
7. Pan Pasand
Want to calm someone? Pan Pasand to the rescue.
Who remembers asking the hairdresser to give us the “Rasna-girl” haircut?
After Maggi’s ban, we’re seeing this in our dreams.#wemissyou Maggi.
