This is the age of information explosion. News just poring through 24 hours news channels, desktop PCs, laptops, I Pads, I phones and smart phones.
The younger generation mostly see the news by just flipping their smartphones. News has become just like a instant coffee !
Yeah life being so busy, nobody has time to wait for the news paper and they get updated themselves through electronic devices on the go.
I am a avid reader of news paper. In fact so obsessed with using news papers though I too some times go through news through electronic devices.
I find there is lot of difference between reading news through electronic devices and through news papers. I agree reading news through electronic devices are comfortable, convenient and also instant. But do you really relish the news? That is the big question.
Early morning waiting for the news paper boy and the sound of rolled up paper hitting your door is a pleasant experience.
After picking up, I go through main headlines. Then politics, sports and entertainment. Each page dedicated to particular topic and it gives the reader quickly go to the topic whichever they prefer most.
For in depth analysis I always look for editorials and articles of eminent experts. Due to some reasons if you want to read a particular news later, you can easily find it quickly in printed news paper than search it online.
Printed news paper has lot of local content which certainly won’t find in digital form. I also find plenty of useful advertisements, which I find missing in online.
To read a print news, you don’t need electricity, internet connection and you can comfortably read your news without any hitch.
In lighter vein, printed news has lot of other advantages too. If you go to the park you can spread it on the lawn to sit on it. While going out if it is suddenly drizzling or snowing you can cover your head with the news paper. In case if you want to avoid a person, you can cover your face with news paper pretending that you read the paper seriously !
