An ABCD trying to learn the ABCs of life
Videos and Images
For ABCDs on quadrennial visits to India, a chance to stack up on the latest issues of Tinkle was one of the highlights of their visit. It was also one of the few times an adult bought something for them without their parents' protestations.
Following the price of Tinkle over the years is an excellent way to see inflation trends in India. When the magazine launched in December 1980, an issue was 2.50 Rupees at the newsstand. As of June 2011, the price was 30 Rupees, a 12x increase over 30.5 years.
