My brother used to watch hindi films and he used to say Shashi Kapoor was the most handsome guy from Bollywood. Those were the days we got to see a commercial based on the song "Pyar hua ekraar hua" from a famous Raj Kapoor movie. When I got to understand that Raj Kapoor and Shashi Kapoor were siblings I really appreciated their parents for choosing such rhyming names.
I had literally kept 'not getting prickly heat' in my prayers! The reason was because I believed that prickly heat was nothing but thorny structures on the back. Courtesy: Nycil prickly heat powder commercial. Do we have such commercials to this date, too?
When I was taken to the bank along with someone from the family, as a curious little girl I got to understand what a 'deposit' or a 'withdrawal' was. You dont know how much I was upset when there was a disastrous earthquake somewhere (in Gujarat??) then! I felt too sorry for those who had kept their hard earned money in their savings accounts. What if they were ransacked after the calamity?
Even now I do not understand the last name/family name/surname concept. If I were to do a research ever in my life, this would be the subject I tell you!
Though I have a sensitive skin I had never gotten prickly heat (touch wood). Until I witnessed it personally I was not sure of how it looked though I was convinced that there would not be thorny branches on the back :))
I do not remember when I figured out that our savings with a bank were not kept as money per se. But working for a financial division for a considerable number of years gave a very good exposure to financial transactions.
