Dosas and paranthas made the breakfast surreal,
Now the entire focus is on the cereal;
Chai was drunk with glass or tumbler,
Latte has transformed it to cup and saucer;
All that came with the meal was a pickle,
Now a missing salad deems you fickle;
A sumptuous dessert followed the meal,
Calorie counting now just gives the look-and-feel.
The scooter of choice was a Bajaj,
Now everyone’s thinking of a two-car garage;
The whole household had one telephone,
Cell phones are now being handed down.
Sharing photos was by showing the picture,
Now it’s all done using the Flickr;
Letters used to be mailed from the post office,
Using the e-mail will now suffice.
Fashion and style were last on the mind,
Now ignoring it won’t even make the wife kind;
Bermuda was only known as an island,
Not owning one will banish you to no man’s land.
Buying a TV was a big discussion,
Now the size of LCD is the main contention;
How did you buy it was never a question?
The credit crisis has changed the equation.
