i wish someone would produce a cd featuring the best music from indian ads over the years.

let's make a list. add a link if you've got one. and i'm not taking just ads that make you nostalgic but ads with great tunes. here's ten i can remember.


ek limca churalo na

dairy milk - kuch khaas hain hum sabhi mein

hamaara kal hamaara aaj

my favourite [in both tamil and hindi] jeevan mein aapke naya sunrise

perk - thodi thodi bhari thodi thodi halki

colgate fresh - sanson mein zinda dil tazgi

garden sarees - music by a r rahman

titan music


doodh hain wonderful this one was more fun to watch.

jab ghar ki raunak badhani ho. deewaron ko jab sajaana ho nerolac nerolac.

That Close Up jingle in which Deepika Padukone used to come was funky, funny and nice!

You forgot:

- The taste that gets you started off - Nescafe.

- Mile sur mera tumhara - I think this was a National integrity ad. I loved it.


Have you seen the new Dairy Milk ad? Pehli tareekh hai. Its absolutely horrendous.

"titan music"

aka Mozart's Symphony 25, 1st Movement. see here (the relevant bit is at 2:03)

Dear Pri,

The Titan ad has a very young Minissha Lamba playing the piano in it.

That's your trivia for the day.

Thanks,

Kind Regards,

Puppy Manohar

An idea whose time has come. Would buy it. Clearly a gap in the market that the marketing brains have overlooked. Nice, Pri!

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I begin take up real money.
It gets down to select a correct companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the profit with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
