    • You have to scroll a lot when entering your year of birth.

    • You see a model on Ftv and read her date of birth. You remember what you were upto in her year of birth.

    • Most conversations start with,"In my time,"

    • Most thoughts start with, "had this been happening in my time.. "

    • Your niece, nephews, younger siblings etc have a better handle on this tech bit than what you proudly had a few years ago.

    • Your first PC hard drive was measured in MB, not GB.

    • And the processor in Mhz, not Ghz.

    • You've used Windows 3.0/3.1

    • You know what "chitrahaar" was. It was your only daily dose of music.

    • You remember the days when you would cancel an incoming call on your cell phone and call back from a land line

    • When you use the phrase "Aaj kal ke bacche" (Kids nowadays) practically every day.

    • You remember watching English TV series on Star Plus and not Saas Bahu dramas.

    • You've filled petrol that was 17 Rs a litre.

    • When customization meant themes for your mobile phone and WinAmp was the preferred (rather only) choice of mp3 player.

    • When Real Player was the next thing to hit the internet and Netscape Navigator ruled.

    • When Microsoft had just launched DirectX and it was the new dream driver for graphics.

    • You are inclined to reprimand kids with a tight slap rather than coaxing them into doing something.

    • Those kids actively call you Uncle/Aunty.

    • A touch screen somehow never feels right compared to the clicky buttons of your trusty old Nokia.

    • Going out for dinner (in your days) meant only three things, North Indian, South Indian and Chinese.

    • When you reach a David Guetta Concert at midnight and look for food first and everything else later /true story

    • When the next day your legs hurt so severely from said concert that you decide to not go for one again (or decide to book table with seating only)

    • You actually carried ear plugs to the same concert. /true story

    • You go to a party and check out what's available to eat, rather what drinking options are there.

    • You actually look at the clock and wonder when will the host serve dinners.

    • Smoking now only means a flavored shisha with strawberry or pan flavor

    • One can of beer is enough to get you high, three to knock you out.

    • You actively check the calorie content of every processed food item out there before putting it in your cart.

    • Ramen and instant noodles are for fun, once in two weeks and not a staple diet anymore.

    • You can't recollect the last time you ate at KFC, Burger King, Pizza Hut or Dominos.

    • You actively eat your greens to increase your fibre and iron intake :D

    • Holiday now means a relaxing resort with a spa to soothe your aching muscles rather than a whirlwind road trip full of excitement.

    • You drive defensively, rather than aggressively.

    • Your vehicle mileage and tyre life has improved dramatically.

    • Your cars have much lesser dents and scratches in them.

    To be continued... Feel free to add yours to this thread..

    You increase the font size on your Full HD screen, just to be able to read the article on Wikipedia.

    (I think, I'm gonna start posting only in this font size).
