If you are South Asian, listening to this ad or smelling the washing poweder will evoke powerful memories and emotions - nostalgic musings about a simpler time, mixed with the relief of knowing that the nightmare of the polka dot girl dancing to this tune is behind you.


My car is dirty.
Washing powder Nirma!

Your clothes, they are white as milk.
Washing powder Nirma!
