India: The Transition

Its been close to two an a half decades that I have spent living in this country. I have grown up with a lot of things and have seen them changing and suddenly becoming irrelevant. This is a 3 series of advertisements which marks the an amazing transition which Indian society has gone through in the two wheeler market. From the old Bajaj Scooters which I am sure every kid of my age would have driven and would have a memory associated with it, to today’s so called performance bikes which kid 10 years younger to us keep zip zapping on the road. I just share the transition from the eyes of a kid who always loved & related to advertisements.

To all the people who curse India for everything, We have come a lot forward, not because of you, but despite you and we will go still further

    Bajaj for me stands for the lifestyle of India’s Common Man…and the sentiments that We as Indians hold in our culture.

    Thanks for reviving some old memories. 🙂

    Bajaj is truely “Hamara Baja”
    Scooters are my favourtie play mates LOL.

    I brought my first bike (TVS Excel doesnot count by the way) CT100, because I love the brand so much!

    Glad to see these adverts after a long time, look at how they have taken it in according to the indian culture and our rituals.
