A Global Possession: The Newspaper

Everybody owns their own newspaper, because everybody owns their own page of interest in the 25 “society-pages”, be it nation’s politics, lifestyle, horoscope, movie reviews, sports, columns by learnt men and women, stocks, property, job interviews or the matrimonial pages. No matter who we are; where we belong to; whether we live on a sultry platform or in a luxurious bungalow; for most of us, the day starts with knowing what’s up with the world, even before knowing what’s up with our neighbour next door.

Newspaper has become a part of our heritage. The Newspaper is to WordPress what Walkman is to the iPod. In a world of globalisation, everyone is quite conscious about their awareness. To satisfy this want, for the middle-class, it’s the three-rupee newspaper, while for the rich it’s the popping notification of the TOI or Inshorts Application, both in the language they understand. The well-off may boast the free news they choose to get on their gadget, but the less fortunate affords the single digit expense of the original newspaper.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
