How Many Of These Indian Brands Do You Remember?


It’s been a while since our last post, but now we’re back and we’re ready to take everything to another level. That means more funny stories, entertaining news, and sometimes actual news that you’d want to read. And to kickstart things off, let me ask you this: How many of these vintage print advertisements for Indian products from the 50s-80s do you actually remember, and how many of them survived?

Don’t forget to comment your answer below — and inevitably tell us how young or old you actually are!

1. How much of these gave you toothache when you were young?
