Like many of you, some of the enduring memories from my childhood are caught on tape.
Back then, producing video was a laborious process and required special equipment, like a SUPER 8mm film camera.
There’s a tape of me being pushed around in a miniature car. Another of my brother Adhir and I playing with the Rao kids – Atul, Ajit, Sheila – at Waterloo Park. And yet another scene at a birthday party.
The Raos have been family friends ever since our parents, both new immigrants to Canada from India, met when they overheard each other speaking their native language, Marathi, in a Canadian Tire store.
