Swami Nikhilaananda said: " So true!! " Below is a wonderful post [Not my original, I was tagged in it on facebook - Thanks Anil Pai] which I thought I should share with everyone. I kept saying "Oh! So true" or just nodded and smiled... See if you agree with me. You know you grew up in the '90s in India when... 1) You know the words to ‘In-pin-safety-pin’ and ‘akkad-bakkad’ by heart 2) Cricket is almost a religion for you, and you idolize at least one of Rahul Dravid/Sachin Tendulkar/Saurav Ganguly 3) You have read at least some Chacha Chaudhary or Tinkle comics 4) You’ve watched Shaktimaan on TV at least once in your life.
