30 More Things That Will Make You Feel Old – India Edition.

You are older than you think! Making you think many things happened “recently” is a trick played by your sub-conscious to make you think you are young and kicking. Inspired by XKCD’s Epic diagram that makes people think they are old based on movie release dates, and then 40 things that make you feel old, I present my contribution – with more of Indian stuff thrown in. Enjoy, feel old and miserable! :) (P.S.: It is fine if you want to copy and send this as an email forward, but be kind enough to give me credit and include this as well:  From vadakkus.com, Source: http://bit.ly/feeloldindia Took a lot of work to create this, appreciation is appreciated! :)) (All images are property of their original copyright owners.
