3.50 -> 15 !!! Is Vikatan Really Worth For 15 ?

15 Sep

Terminated My Relationship with Vikatan since last month.(Its been a 13 Year Strong Bond Between Me And Anantha Vikatan.)

Lets go for a Kutti Flashback: Fell in Love with Vikatan in my 10th Std.(Rs.3.50 in 1995) thru my Chithappa who’s a Regular Subscriber of all Magazines excluding Yellow Pages.Those days I will be eagerly waiting for my Chithappa’s arrival in the weekend jus to Grab the Vikatan.Soon i fed up of Waiting till Weekend and started picking up the Vikatan from my neighbour’s home every Wed.Its only the Vikatan induced the Reading habit in me which eventually shifted my Gears From TV to Some Good Novels,Short Stories Of Jayakanthan,Sujatha.

But Since Last Month I Stopped Vikatan Since it Altered the Shape to a Bigger Size with Silky Papers jus to vindicate for its Price Hike to 15.Moreover the standard of Vikatan becomes too mediocre since it new Alteration with flooding of junk things like Namitha Related Articles every week,Useless Cover Stories,Stupid College Stories to woo Teenagers(Which of these are Usual things in Kumutham.)

Epilogue:The New Change Over in Looks irritates,rather bringing a fresh feel.To be honest i don’t have the feel of reading Anantha Vikatan instead feeling like Reading Aval Vikatan.
