Here's the preamble Kush gives to the poem:
"In the 90s, the economic order in India was changing from socialism to capitalism post the neo-liberal economic reforms of '91. For much of the 90s we had little radio and lesser number of TV channels (just 2, I think). Cable television was something new.
In this poem I have tried to capture the colours of the familiar neighbourhood during that languorous period of my boyhood days, when things were less and thus, familiar."
