We use to have a big TV trolley with wheels in our home and it was a fashion trend at that time. When I was 7-10 years, I used to sit on TV trolley a lot, if anybody had seen them, they would know how risky is it to sit on them. My mom used to scold me a lot.

I was crazy about soaps and chocos. I use to bug my mom to buy me a soap whenever I saw a new soap ad.

Me and my dad use to fight over a packet of picnic crisps. Anybody in India would know about picnic. I still love them.
