It is before the IT revolution, Namma Bengaluru was definitely a heavenly place to live in and everybody accepts this fact.
Be it the climate, it’s elevation, lakes, food, shopping and what not, you name it Bengaluru had it all. We could call it before and after the IT revolution. The Bengaluru that every 90s kid experienced was completely on a different level and nobody forgets the true essence of that period. It was calm, serene, a lot of greenery and less traffic.
Even now we feel nostalgic about some places when we pass through them, and that smile on our faces makes every 90s kid feel special and blessed growing up in Namma Bengaluru. Isn’t that sakkath.
If you are a 90s kid, we request to share your sakkath memories with us in the comment section below. The best ones will be featured.
Probably the 90s kid were the last ones to experience that era of sakkath Bengaluru.
Well in this article, it’s time to revisit some of the memories.
Here are 6 Sakkath memories that every 90s kid remembers about Namma Bengaluru
TRAVELING IN DOUBLE DECKER AND PUSHPAK BUSES
The definition of luxury were the pushpak buses. The excitement levels were on the top every time we traveled in them whether be it standing or sitting. Double-decker buses were everyone’s favorite back then. As kids, we always wanted to travel in double-decker buses just to experience the top view.
UTILITY BUILDING WAS THE TALLEST BUILDING
Now Bangalore has got n number of tall buildings, but back then it was the only tallest building that could be seen from far off places. It has 25 floors and stands at 106m. The main architect was Atul Sharma. Utility building was the pride of bengaluru back then.
GROWING UP IN VATARAS
We are sure that you wouldn’t have heard of this, we have got gated communities now but in 90s vataras were the gated communities of the middle class. With 6 – 8 house owned by a single owner growing up in vataras was always sakkath.
VISITING LALBAGH/CUBBON PARK ON WEEKENDS
We all waited for weekends to come just to visit the Lalbagh, Cubbon park and to sit and travel in sakkath train eating muskin Jola. Best times isn’t it?
A VISIT TO EXHIBITIONS
The most sakkath experience is visiting the exhibitions held at open spaces on a large scale.
Taking a ride on giant wheels and many other fun activities. Roaming around with friends. Watching circus and everyone remembers eating cotton candies and popcorns.
GOING TO AIRLINES HOTEL WAS A BIG DEAL BACK THEN
It was believed that only rich people hang out there and it was a place known for settlements be it official or unofficial ones. Even the dons of Bangalore used to pay their visit to this hotel frequently. So it was a big deal back then. Friends of us would consider it as a pride factor visiting this hotel.
Wow, those days were just Sakkath.
