Washing machines came to India in 1987 or maybe 1989? The first washing machine was made by Videocon and the Doordarshan ad featured a nice sweet aunty belting out these words:

It washes, it rinses,
It even dries the clothes....
In just a few minutes....
Videocon washing machiiiiiiiiine


You don't need to go to the dhobi anymore yar, just buy one videocon washing machine. All in one.
