Chal Meri Luna

Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers




There was a time when I enjoyed going for walks. I still go for my daily walk but I now do so after saying a prayer each time I go out.  Traffic is Pune is going from bad to worse. The roads are crammed with youngsters on bikes disregarding all traffic rules. One gets to see all these fancy sleek modified bikes that wiz past at breakneck speeds. It’s a nightmare.

I remember the good old childhood days of Jodhpur when owning a Bajaj Chetak or Priya was a sign of prosperity. I wonder if Bajaj still makes those scooters. I heard somewhere they had stopped.

It used to be every youngster’s dream to own a Luna and every girl’s dream to own a Sunny..and yes let’s not forget Hero Puch. I remember there used to be a Rajdoot bike in my family too. Sunday mornings were spent cleaning the vehicles lovingly. Heck..I even loved the “Hamara Bajaj” and “Chal Meri Luna”advertisements that played on Doordarshan.

Aah…nostalgia…

  6. We too had Luna, smaller than scooter and kinetic. Didn't even need a licence to drive too, so as soon as you reached teenage you could drive it. First ever vehicle we learnt with. It was like a cycle with a motor. We used to play on it so much as kids
