In India, many people still prefer to publish lost and found advertisements in newspapers. Even in this age of technology and online classifieds, there are some who feel that newspapers are the best way to reach out to a large number of people quickly.
Newspapers have the advantage of being seen by a large number of people across the country (or even the world), and readers can often find them in public places such as bus stops, railway stations, or airports. Newspapers also tend to have a longer shelf life than online classifieds, which means that people can search through them even weeks after they’ve been published. Finally, newspapers are affordable and easy to use, making them an attractive option for those looking to publish a lost article.
