You know what they say about change, right? It’s the only constant. And judging by my high school photos, I’m glad that’s what it is. As much as baggy jeans and weird piercings make people nostalgic, all they do for me is set in motion a personal cringe-fest. Now, you might sometimes find yourself getting daunted in the face of a possible Black Mirror-ish future, but these 10 things from the past (that we’re glad are in the past) prove that change can sometimes be a very good thing.

1. There was a time when there was NO INTERNET.

*Cue the screams*

2. Everyone was wearing T-shirts twice their size.

They were big enough to fit a small family.

3. Watching the cricket world cup was like hosting a frat party.

Why watch Cricket alone when you can watch it with the entire neighbourhood and their grandmothers?

4. ‘Emo’ used to be a thing.

And the perfect emo accessory was a slit wrist.

5. We had TVs with 100 channels. Channel numbers 45 – 100 looked like this:

Not to mention channel numbers 1-10 were like an extended family of Doordarshan.

6. One word. Scrunchies.

Your face deserves punchies.

7. Hooking a pager onto your pants like this was apparently a fashion statement.

We get it. You own a pager.

8. 2 Words. Mushroom Cut.

Yeah, too many people looked like Sanju from Shakalaka Boom Boom.

9. The thugs of the era that was, didn’t wear shades or have a joint In their mouth. They wore overalls.

Yes, overalls.

10. Extra Roomy Hammer Pants Were… Just. Yeah.

Can’t touch this. Don’t want to either. 

Someone once said that what is now in the future will one day be in the past. Thus, you can either resist change or be a hands-on agent of it. Well, that’s exactly what Reliance Trends is doing just a few months into 2017.
