Newspapers – The Vital Part of Journalism

Newspapers, in the beginning, started as a journal. Today, newspapers have become an essential part of human life. The profession which involved the creation of newspapers is today called as journalism. A newspaper is a printed media which publishes information on the hot sensational topics and breaking news from all over the world. It connects the people worldwide and keeps us well informed. From daily life tragedies to sports, politics, entertainments, advertisements, etc., a newspaper has all in it.

People should make a habit of reading newspapers every day. Newspapers also have some interesting sections for children like solving puzzles, sudoku, and many other interesting stories and GK contents. Reading a newspaper is fun as it refreshes your mood. One can improve his or her vocabulary in the language in which it is printed. Newspapers are not limited to any languages, and I think that is the best part of it. Nowadays, newspapers are not only available in print but are also published online in the form of news websites. Every journalism organisations have their own printed publication as well as news websites. Today, in this modern world, newspapers are playing an important role in the exercise of freedom of expression.

The national daily that I read every day is “The Hitavada”. It is one of the best and top selling newspaper in my city. Unlike every other newspaper like “The Times of India”, “The Hindu”, “The Hindustan Times” and to name a few which is available all over India, the Hitavada is distributed in only four selected cities. And they are Nagpur, Raipur, Jabalpur and Bhopal. It is divided into two sections- “The Hitavada” which keeps you informed about the worldwide events and news, and “The City Line” which keeps you well updated with the city whereabouts and happenings. An additional segment is printed on every Sunday called as the “Insight” which carries various pieces of stuff like articles on social topics, poems, health and fitness, biographies, feng shui facts, astrology and several other interesting sections including articles on different holiday destinations and places to visit in India.

On a concluding note, I would like to highlight that reading of a newspaper is of utmost importance for every individual since it not only broadens our views and aspects about life but also keeps us connected to the society. Newspaper, being a highly organised industry today, it is one of the cheapest and powerful weapons in the last analysis.
