Sitting with my dad, sipping filter kappi in Madras, today I got to read that the Newspaper Association of America is dropping the word 'newspaper' from its name. It will be known as News Media Alliance it seems.
Though my father couldnt not accept that he could start his day without going through headlines in newspapers, later he got convinced when I told him about VR (Virtual Reality) stories would be dropped into his inbox in his mobilephone.
But again reading newspaper is an art !! fortunately I had the experience of reading newspapers standing in the crowded bus travelling into villages in Tamil Nadu and now viewing BBC, Tamil news channels, NYT, the guardian, etc.,,,
