Of monkey balloons, kulfis, tonga rides and the ferris wheel

  1. While I agree that it is the tonga rides and kulfi vendors that have chiselled the personality of cities, and seeing them disappear is like urbanization at its worst, I think, and as radical/harsh as this might sound, brands that find a way to romance technology,help people embrace urbanization and pep up life 2.0, will be secretly cherished and loved in time to come. Brands that dwell on nostalgia will be loved for a short burst, but will lose to the former.

  2. Hi Sandhya. Nice writing. I couldn’t agree more with the unhealthy turn of cities little cultures. I would think that people in their 50s would have more little episodes to quote from their memory too. Genext would have no compunctions.
    But it’s the way societies evolve. Like Victorian furniture became outdated & ikea took over as new. Don’t all ikea homes look the same…does it matter? It wont be long b4 some of these becom museum pieces. Or then mayb a revival is around the corner.
