Then versus Now - The top 10 differences

  1. Something plugged into your ears indicated you were deaf, not listening to an mp3 player
  2. 'Social network' meant something to do with USSR, India's biggest ally
  3. You needed advanced computer skills to transfer a file > 1.44 MB
  4. 'Gay' was just a simple synonym of happy
  5. Using the phone would utmost cause blisters, not cancer due to hidden rays
  6. 'Channel 2' or 'Second channel' always implied only one thing
  7. Colored-clothing cricket indicated a major world cricket tournament, not Ind vs. SL again
  8. Kissing a girl on the February 14th got the same tight slap
  9. If you had a Maruti car, you were 'different' from those that had Fiat or Ambassador
  10. Work from home meant you were out of a job...
Any other ones, please post them in the comments section...

2. Thumb was used only to put on legal documents (thumbprint) or for giving a thumbs up
