my_dict = {'name': 'TutorialsPoint', 'time': '15 years', 'location': 'India'}
print(my_dict['name'])
print(my_dict['time'])

You can also use the get method on the dictionary to get the value associated to the key in that dict.

my_dict = {'name': 'TutorialsPoint', 'time': '15 years', 'location': 'India'}
print(my_dict.get('name'))
print(my_dict.get('time'))

Output
