Newspaper Masthead Quiz

December 30, 2010

We see them everyday in different postures. Lazily lying on the sofa, uncomfortably waiting near the neighbour’s doorstep, or sometimes squeezed in to fit the door handle, scattered all over the table at the bank, spread across the government office compound by lucky souls to think about spiritual enlightenment, rolled into a cone by the lady selling groundnuts at the park…

If at all you met one and asked “Hi, who are you?”, may be it would introduce itself a la James bond style “My name is Paper. News-paper”.

When a regular newspaper reader picks up one anytime, s/he instantly is used to navigating through the pages. That is mainly because we know that this is so-and-so newspaper. Some years ago, Bangalore hardly had half a dozen newspapers. Today, I can hardly remember the names of the English dailies, let alone the Financial and the vernacular newspapers.

Hence this quiz – Being a newspaper addict myself, I thought why not test my own and all other newspaper freaks’ ‘NQ’ by compiling the Newspaper Masthead Quiz here on RwB!

It will be fun to see how many newspapers we can identify – believe me, although I have compiled this quiz, I am getting confused if  No.19 is “dash-dash” newspaper or No.16 is “dash-dash-dash” newspaper. So, here we go !

Time limit: 20 mins

Good luck & happy quizzing.

Wishing you a fantastic MMXI! May all your wishes come true in the new year.

[Btw, my first wish is to see food and vegetables at affordable prices!]
