My house was resembling a warehouse for old newspapers but we finally got rid of them today. There was nearly 50Kg worth of paper laying around.
Consider what we get every day:
- Time of India
- Mumbai Mirror, free with Times, everyday.
- The Economic Times
- The Bombay Samachar, a Gujarati paper.
Most days, the Times’ bundle itself crosses over 120 pages. And it seems that every other day we get a complimentary free copy of Hindustan Times… I imagine when DNA launches, we’ll get that for free too initially. Mumbai is going newspaper crazy I say.
I don’t read newspapers at all; the max I do is try & solve the crossword puzzles. I’m hopeless at that of course. But my folks don’t listen to me when I say that you don’t need so much paper.
Bloglines keeps me on top of things very nicely.
