event published(string indexed username,uint8 indexed age);

in front-end (browser) :

                { fromBlock: 0, filter: { age: 15 } },                                                                                       
               function (err, evt) {                                                                                                        

sending values:

await instance.methods.publish("ezio", 15).send({ from: accounts[0] });

no events get captured even though the transaction is successful. and when i use a listen to the same event with no filters i get an empty returnValues object.

I found out the problem it's because i was using ganache Ui, i switched to using ganache in the console and it is working fine.

PS: using string as an indexed parameter is wrong since you can never filter dynamic types such as string or array.
