A newspaper has a very important place in our lives. If we were to live without newspaper we would be in the dark. We will never know what is happening in our own country and the world.

They report incidents of importance that occur daily in various parts of the country and the world. No doubt there is TV and radio. But their reports are not authentic.
A newspaper gives us the correct picture of the social, cultural, economic and business scene in the word. If there are no newspapers we would never learn about the various changes that are taking place in various spheres and also who or what causes those changes. Knowledge gives us strength to tackle problems and knowledge and information is best provided by newspapers.
