MUMBAI: Imagine travelling back to the time when we were young. Growing up is not an option for anyone. It is one of those inevitable aspects of the train of life that every passenger has to experience. But how you grow up is an option, more so, an option that everyone chooses to do in their own way. Some love the ‘grown up' phase while others dwell and hate the fact that the comfort of being carefree does not exist anymore. 

For a 90s kid, the world was really a unique place during that decade. The phase when comic books took shelter in the palms of our hands for most of the day, a time when a bicycle ride with friends felt no less than a dangerous mission, where tape-recorders remained a luxurious commodity, and asking your mother for money did not end with a "earn for yourself" reply.

The 90s also played a vital role in shaping our understanding of entertainment. As flat screen televisions were welcomed with sheer enthusiasm, a part of 90s kid died with the departure of CRTs (Cathode Ray Tube).

Game of Thrones replaced The Small Wonder, Sherlock replaced Tin Tin, Family Guy and Tom & Jerry provided hourly moments of laughter, whereas WWF became WWE. 

For the child in all of us, let us revisit some of the series that makes travel down the memory lane pleasurable as we delve deeper into nostalgia.
