Growing up in 80’s and growing up in 90’s was completely different.
In 1983 , television came first time in India and soon Doordarshan was born.
Owning a television was a luxury statement and there used to be only 1 television in the entire society or may be in the entire village.
Everyone used to gather at one place to watch sunday afternoon prime show such as chitrakala.
1980’s was called License Raj where even a minute government task couldn’t be completed without a source or a bribe.
After India won 1983 world cup , soon there was a birth of a phenomena called cricket fever and cricket became the prime sport replacing our national sport hockey. Thus 83 victory had a huge significance in indian cricket history.
In 1985,operation blue star caused assassination of india gandhi followed by massacre and riots.
The major difference between 1980’s and 1990’s was cited by my cousin who grew up in 1980’s.
He told me he never heard about pizza , burger , pasta & neither tasted them and going out for a dinner was exclusive to rich.
