I have around 150 tapes dating from 1984 onwards. They all play even now. I have this habit of writing the date and the place of purchase and putting my signature. This was to avoid stealing of my cassettes by hostel mates. What you are seeing is a 36 years old tape, purchased in Silchar, Assam. This is one of those cassette which says
Purchased on 12th May 1986 from HMV, Central Road, Silchar for Rs 36.
Sole property of M.G. Bhangui
