  2. I can talk about great Bata shoes. And Kashmiri's Gola boots. In Kashmir 'Gola boot' was the word for the sports shoes. It turns out "Gola' in fact is an old shoe company from Britain. Must have been quite popular in Kashmir.

  4. Could you get one of those old INCREMIN tonic ads that originally appeared, as I remember, in Reader's Digest (India) back from the 70s which shows some smiling children playing on a swing?
