சுகமான அனுபவம்.....

Just thought of this situation : How many of us get to read newspapers in the morning nowadays ?

In this fast paced world, most of us hardly find time to read the newspapers. I,for instance would read the news either on the web /ePaper or listen to radio during the super early drive to work or while watching TV in the evening . But the pleasure of reading newspapers has always been sacrificed.I remember those days back home when i and my family members would wait eagerly for the paper to be delivered in the morning and there would definitely be a fight as who would get to read it first. Each one of us would want their favorite news item to be read ..be it the front page or classifieds or stock market quotes or sports...

Yesterday being Sunday,i got to read the LA times.I can't explain how much i relished those couple of hours i spent on reading the news paper ஒரு வரி விடாம including the supplements,and wading thru' those fliers that came along with the paper.Adding to the excitement was reading the special coverage on World Cup Cricket on this mainstream American newsprint,while sipping bru coffee and Suryan FM being played in the background .That feeling surely was emotional for one who was away from home for a while.

Anyways,i have decided to read papers atleast once a week..அப்ப நீங்க ??

I still remember the smell of the fresh newsprint (local though) of Indian Express. My mom used to throw the paper on my face to make me wake up.

At times, I buy Financial Times in UK, but the fact that we'll have to walk upto the corner store to get that makes me skip on many days.
