Bring back that Smile!!

Bored with the large crowd in Kanteerava on this week end driving ladies of the family to Women’s expo, both me and my son freaked out on this delicacy … the Candy floss!!


I recollected my childhood days to run after the candy floss man who used to carry small balls in a glass container and all kids just used to flock around him Laughing,having fun, eating some…
Buying the candy floss again took me back in time to bring back that Smile!! When have you had one recently??

    Oh yes i do remember the old days when i was in Jayanagar 4th block and most of the times i visited the shopping complex with my parents i used to get those candy.

    I still remember as a kid my mom had to tell me not to put my whole face into that.

    Just wanna get back to those days..ah why can’t there be some kind of time machine which takes you back to those good old days

    Apart from Candy floss, I’d love to go back to have chole, boiled peanuts, roasted corn, sliced cucumber with green, spicy chutney, guavas, mangoes etc etc

    Very, very nostalgic, Rajesh. I too go down memory lane on this. Except that I go down maybe ten years more than you and Ravi.

    Nice picture as well.

    Ravi’s comment on “chole, boiled peanuts, roasted corn, sliced cucumber with green, spicy chutney, guavas, mangoes…” makes my mouth water all over again. Not a good way to start a working day. Mmmm

    Actually, more than candy floss, I have a particularly nostalgic memory of sonpapdi – not the solid shaped one available in sweet shops…I’m talking about the one that looks like greyed beard and is being sold on push carts, and stored inside a huge bell jar. I used to desperately wait to hear this seller’s bell, back when I was a kid in Srirangam (Trichy)! Surprisingly, in Xavier Layout (behind Lifestyle, where I work) there are a couple of vendors who still sell sonpapdi the same way.

    I’m a regular customer these days and found that one of them has been in this business for 25+ years!

    Yes they certainly do bring back very happy memories and the simple life that we grew up in,now thing are more complex with the television media vying for kids attention-the “pester” power as the ad man would tell you -where kids crave for that have no nutritional value at all
