Brands …. which have faded away …..

We have come across several brands (and some models of these brands) in our life’s and lots of them seem to have faded away from our usage, memory or taken over and rebranded …… this one is down the memory lane for such ones.

(not in any particular order)

  • Dyanora (our 1st B&W TV)
  • Solidaire TV(i was associated with them)
  • Hotshot cameras
  • NikiTasha TV & Cooking range
  • Crown TV
  • Grundig Electronics
  • HMT watches (it’s still existing i guess)
  • Hero pens & writing instruments
  • RPG Cellular
  • Skycell
  • Carona shoes
  • Kumar Shirts (pioneers in low cost readymade shirts)
  • Siemens Mobiles (especially their once very famous S4 model)
  • BSA SLR Bicycles
  • Yamaha Rx100 bikes
  • Sakura films (later became Konica)
  • Salora TV
  • JJ TV Channel
  • Golden Eagle Channel

the list is still not over ….. and seems never ending …….

Why don’t you add some more in the comments section …..
