When did you first see a television set?It was November-December, 1977. The elders in our mohalla in Kolkata had started discussing the oncoming World Cup football to be held in Argentina (in 1978). Then suddenly the football-loving family (of four brothers) just beside our home purchased that astonishing instrument. We went there the next day. And that was my first experience of seeing a television set. At that time I was 10+.
So, I saw the television set when I was 10+. Before that, I had heard from my parents that in foreign countries, people watch television which works like a cinema (moving pictures and sound) in our room. We could never fully believe that such an instrument was possible. Nobody even imagined coloured television set. It came to Kolkata by 1983, or so.
I first saw the television set when I was 10+. Members may kindly indicate when did they first see a television set and what was their initial reaction/feeling.
Needless to say, this question is basically meant for 40+ Members.
