At my house, we get daily newspapers. My father is old school. He always sits with a newspaper and a cup of tea to read the news in the morning.

2. How often do you read the newspaper?

I am not a regular reader. But I mostly follow sports sections. Since the election is fast approaching, I happen to follow the regional section too. And nowadays I dont have time to sit and read the news, so I download the TOI app on my mobile to get daily news.

3. What news do you prefer to read?

I generally follow sports news. But I go through the headlines of every topic. If something catches my attention,I go through the entire article.

4. Do most people in your country follow the news?
