Even this challenging situation would ease
Then reading that newspaper from childhood grew into a habit. Keralites have a habit of reading the newspaper with the bed coffee every morning. The first preference was to read the news on the front page. Then quickly go to the District page. It should also be remembered that radio was the only other medium to cover news and most of the local news will not reflect on the radio. If you ask the elders, you will understand that only important national and state news had a place on the radio. After reading the district page, go to the state news. After that only we get to the sports page. We used to read important news before going to school. It should be noted that this practice was not discontinued even during the examination period.
But while the habit of reading the newspaper with a bed coffee cup still persists, the pleasant old experience of reading is lacking. Because of the commonness of TV. However, the press continues to read the news in more detail than what is available on TV news.
But despite watching the whole sports game on TV, I see my son reading the sports page in the morning without leaving a single word. It's true that a day without a newspaper still really feels like laziness or a lack.

Knowledge is power.
But I prefer to read online newspapers. The wire, indian express, the Hindu, NDTV news, BBC and Al Jazeera are good to me.
Be indian and buy Indian.
Immediately on getting the newspaper I read the front page headlines and then turn to back page and read headlines. Then I again come back and read the front page main news items and then proceed to other pages. It is the sports page and obituary page I used to read last or even ignore. Then by night when I need some time pass I read those pages too.
Now the newspapers have become over biased and harp on sensationalism and gossip rather than real factful news. Many days I think of stopping newspaper. But Kerala being always Hartal prone, I need newspaper to know about the hartal matters and about local power shutdown, water supply shut down etc. Otherwise news can be read in internet sites on real time now.
