It's a morning ritual to read newspapers while drinking hot masala tea!! 

Sunday editions are most looked forward to because of additional offbeat articles.. 

Despite the advent of instant news at your fingertips, you still look forward to it. 

The feel of turning pages, inhaling the smell of print and paper and reading local announcements,ads and information is indispensible.  

Sometimes, you read the headlines and exclaim "hey I read it online yest!", yet you will devour the article thinking if any extra Info is listed.

Newspaper articles enriches your vocabulary as well. As a matter of fact, any reading will ensure this. 

Unfortunately, these days newspapers are more of advertisements. During festive season, you have to swim through 4 huge cover pages of latest sales ads before reaching the front page section. 

Well, describing news articles consisting of terrorism and gruesome incidents like rape shall take up the entire blogger space. When you feel you had enough scare of one event, another takes place with more ferocity.  Alas, this is how it is, I suppose.

Page 3 features the latest parties and their party animals. Sometimes i wonder, how difficult it would be for wannabes/constant people to maintain a wardrobe with different styles to attend events regularly.

Its a great medium to reach out to the users who aren't net savvy. 

Also helps in promoting the local events/exhibitions/sales to a better effect.

What are the other uses of newspapers?

  • Spread it on your almirah shelf to contain dust.
  • Use it to soak extra oil while trying those bhajis and puris.
  • Wrap your sanitary pads for disposal.
  • Cover your unused items for storage.
  • Spray some Colin liquid on window panes and tables and wipe it off with it.
  • Keep it in between your ironed clothes for starched look.
  • Best of all -- keep collecting newspapers and sell it off to the raddiwala for a good price, after bargaining!
