Un-growing

Un-growing, I believe, is one of the best ways, not only to kill time during night shifts, but also to lose some of the vagaries of growing up. Television, like it did to most of the others I grew up with, screwed up my life too! But somehow it still forms one of the best part of my sweet memories as I take the time machine back to the days of the Black-and-white Solidare TV. And this cartoon clearly was my first love!

I am not on night shift, but that was my favorite cartoon before Spiderman. I even remember having nightmares/dreams with "Skeletor" chasing and "He-man" saving me.

Hey found that the picture was too good to desist from posting. Its just an alteration in the pipe-line.

Ya, it used to be good times, except for those exams that we had to write. Wonder how much value have they added now!

Priya,
What a cardinal sin! I don't understand why people take pride in their "grown-up" side and get embarrassed to show off the kid in him/her

That kid is the one that keeps him/her happy. The grown-up talks philosophy, does taxes and whines about being under-paid.
