In the 90s, on sweltering school sports days , when pocket money wasn't enough to afford cool drinks or mango duets or cup icecreams, these little 2 rupee ice sticks were enough to make a school kid happy. Tearing open the frozen ice stick with the teeth and sucking the frozen sweet liquid was one of those inexplicably thrilling experiences of childhood .
Preserved in iceboxes (in schools that did not have refrigerators), these were frosty and stiff when bought in the mornings. Over the day, the scalding sun and the frequent opening and closing of the ice box would make them limp and watery-but even that wouldn't bring down the demand..

"How did you feeel" during those bad days/when your love life was in a turmoil/when you were struggling to establish credibility ? etc etc

Simi however, has not been spared. MTV VJ Cyrus Sahukar anchored a spoof Simi Garewal show called the 'Semi Girebaal Show' where Semi, like Simi, sported white clothes and interviewed celebrity duplicates exaggeratedly mimicking all her little airs and graces. Unlike Simi, Semi could not handle the intensity of her deep and soul searching questions- she broke into tears amidst her own shows.
Living up to the meaning of her name, semi wore wigs that kept slipping off her head. She also advertised wigs and other ludicrous beauty products during commercial breaks.
MTV no longer telecasts the hilarious Semi Girebaal shows...(sigh)..Now that Simi is back with 'India's most desirable', let us hope Semi comes back too..
