14 Things From Our Nepali Childhood That We Don’t See Anymore

Every Nepali must have countless memories of things from our Nepali childhood that seemingly unlock at the most random moments. These memories are a mix of things that we don’t see anymore — childhood snacks, dated technology, and other homesick nostalgia. It’s weird how the everyday things we grew up seeing have become a backed up memory now, pushed way back in the corner of our minds.

We’ve collected a list of such nostalgic everyday objects. If you grew up during the 90’s or the early 2000’s, you must recognize these things from our Nepali childhood that we don’t see anymore. 

1. Floppy Disk

When we look back at the annoyance of having to buy multiple floopy disks, it makes us appreciate pen-drives more.

2. DVD Players

We all must remember renting movies and watching them repeatedly to get the money’s worth!

3. Camera Reel

Although running to get a reel refill was a struggle —these cameras were a crucial part of creating core memories for every Nepali family.

4. CRT TVs

These big head TVs would need so many adjustments to work fine. A bunch of beating, and relentlessly moving the antenna was mandatory for best performance.

5. CD folder

Why were CDs so fragile, getting scratched up by anything but air? But thankfully these handy folders helped us preserve our parent’s wedding footage perfectly.

6. Sticker Books

Our textbooks would be filled with stickers of Hannah Montana, Ben Ten, and every other popular show at the time!

7. Set Wet Gel

The Set Wet TV ads really got to the short haired folks. People really didn’t know when to stop and walked out with literal wet looking head!

8. Muna Magazine

Amongst all the things from our Nepali childhood, this hits home the most. Muna magazine was a child’s literary paradise — drawings, poems and silly stories. And, we all must’ve dreamt of getting featured in their birthday wishes section!

9. Spicy Orange Ball

There is no Nepali who doesn’t recall the classic orange ball candy. But, do you remember its spicy counterpart? Only some exceptions could handle the spice!

10. Physical Calendars

It’s not that these are extinct, we just don’t see these religious, old-school calendars anymore. But it really is much simpler to just glance at your phone nowadays!

11. These Ink Pens

Writing with these pens would take you to another level of intellectuality. But, it ruined some perfectly white shirts too.

12. Pink Speaker/Torch

This was a high tech, revolutionary device and honestly no other radio or torch has ever met our expectations again!

13. Landline Phones With Multiple Terminals

These phones might have done more harm than good. It was so easy for our moms to spy on our conversations!

14. Super Mario Bros

Games today could never compare to Super Mario bros. After all, you could hold an actual make shift gun — making our action hero fantasies come to life!
