Can’t Imagine Life Without Internet? See What Udaipur’s 90’s Kids Did!

1

Today everything is dominated by the virtual world. Everyone hangs out on social media, make new friends on Facebook, and update pictures on Instagram and so on. Even the busiest person would take out time to post their Facebook check-in. While today’s kids are growing up within the confinement of the Internet, we, the 90s kids were roaming around in our neighborhood, hanging out with our mum and dad or probably at our friend’s place.

I am sure nostalgia will be hitting hard after this!!!

Attending Birthday Parties At Home

The definition of a friend was ‘who invited us to their birthday party’. Birthday parties were then celebrated at home, and served was some finger-licking home cooked food. Don’t we miss it sometimes? The trend is quite lost with time.

Going to the Neighbor’s House to Play

Either daily in the evening or in the summer vacation during the daytime. So many memories of playing in the houses of friends are stacked up in our minds.

Went To Play Around In the Nearest Park

What was life if not running around in the park and playing some random games like ‘pakadni’!?

SWINGS!!!

‘Jhule’ was the favorite thing in those days and I was certainly a lover of swings. Weren’t you all?

Hanging out with family

Hanging out with family was a frequent sight, unlike today. There were a lot of places frequently visited with my friends and family and these places were nothing less than paradise.

Saheliyo Ki Baadi

The beautiful Saheliyo Ki Baadi was one big thing for the 90s kid! On special occasions like distant relatives visiting us, called for a quick visit to Saheliyo Ki Baadi. Can you remember when the last time you went to Saheliyo-ki-Baadi was?

Nehru Garden

I bet a lot of children haven’t been to Nehru Garden. This is an exotic landmark for our City of Lakes. When we were kids, it was one fantasy place for us- something which is floating over the water of the Lake Fateh Sagar.

Musical Fountain of Deen Dayal Park

Because of lack of preservation and promotion, this park is sadly visited by none today. The maximum you see is tourists coming there to get into the ropeway for the sunset point at Karni Mata.

Gulab Bagh Zoo

I would fall short of words to describe the excitement that my mind was filled with when we planned to visit the Gulab Bagh Zoo. It was and is the only zoo in the city, but quite sadly is in its ruined state. A whole day-out used to be planned, and the toy train added more fantasy quotient to the entire day.

Sukhadia Circle

What would you do if you didn’t buy a balloon from the ‘balloon wale bhaiyya’ at Sukhadia Circle? ‘Chana-Chor-Garam’ and all the ice creams of the world, not forgetting to mention the paddle boat!

Moti Magri, Guru Govind Singh Park, Dudh Talai, Sanjay Garden

These parks were the best thing of our childhood! Probably today kids don’t even know where these are, but for the 90s kids, this was the thing. Moti Magri was a bit different from what it looks today and same for the Guru Govind Singh Park overlooking Lake Fatehsagar. The gardens at Dudh Talai Garden (Manikya Lal Verma Garden) with oodles of swings were a child’s heaven. Sanjay garden has a beautiful fountain that was very enticing back then.
