    I think the newspapers looked much better back then without the sickening color ads on the front page!

    you keep old papers or just special ones?

    I’m glad they have most newspapers compact size here, especially Guardian. Makes it much more easier to read now.

    Prathibimba Back then there was so much to read. Now there’s more to see and little to read. Now that I lament that.

    San Usually only the special ones. This one’s a little extra special. And I had manually dug this one out from the dusty HT archives.

    Indian newspapers have all followed suit.
