We are the last generation.
We are the last generation that learnt to play in the street,
the last generation who played hide an seek.
we are the first who've played video games,
seen cartoons in color and amusement parks
We were the last to record songs of the radio on cassettes,
we knew the connection between a pencil and cassette and we are the pioneers of walkmans and chat...rooms.
We Learned how to program the VCR before anyone else, play with the Atari, Super Nintendo and believed that the Internet would be a free world. We are the generation of the Giant Robot, He-Man, Street Hawk, Thunder Cats, the Transformers, Silver Hawks, Gumby, Highwayman, Manimal, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, - Traveled in cars without seat belts or air-bags, rode the bike without helmets, drinking and driving was not a crime, lived without cell phones, - We did not have Play stations, 99 television stations, flat screens, surround sound, mp3s, iPods, computers and the Internet, ...but we had time to rest our head on our grandmas lap and listen to bed time stories, we had time to sit and watch chitrahar, rangoli, and saturday evening movies with our parents. We knew how to built a sand castle in the beach, we knew how to fish with a bend needle and a worm. We knew the smell of a slate and chalk pencils. We knew the music before the news at 7 in the radio. We held our dads hands to wait in the bank while they drew money , instead of atms.
