Nandlal Kanjibhai Pancholi
Gujarat, India

They are on the verge of extinction
Now in reading them there is no fun
Electronic media rendered them redundant
Yellow journalism made them defunct
Like a beggar they hanker after ad
Their glamour of late has begun to fade
Editors now grope for thrilling news
And fill up columns with their own views
Letters to the editor lack vigour
There is a dearth of good articles
For contributors are meagre
There are no incentives for columnists
So they have begun to opt for TV superhits
Print media is virtually on oxygen
Even by its erstwhile fans it has been shunned
Its news is dull and stale
And it survives solely on blackmail
