Dear Ilites, Yesterday i and my husband were sitting before the idiot box and were watching some program in sun TV. They were advertising abt the programmes to be telecast on Deepavali day. All the programmes were related to movie stars/movies themselves. this TV being a mass media why shouldn't they try to teach something good for the younger generation. All the time they show only movies and movie related programmes and on festival days it becomes more. Why shouldn't they show something that will be useful for children. Those days when TV came into being for the first time there was only one movie in a week and movie songs were telecast only once in a week. And it used to be very nice. But now it is so horrible that whenever we switch on the TV it is either serials or movies or movie related programmes. Too much of anything is poisonous. Why this younger generation should be glued to this idiot box which shows all imaginary things most of the time? Is it not the duty of the Mass Media to educate the people? Aren't they spoiling the future generation? Why don't they give a thought to it. My husband was arguing that it was because of the TRP ratings that they telecast such programmes and they get income only if they show these programmes. SUN TV group being such a powerful organisation, why shouldn't they devote a channel exclusively for educating the children and putting them in the right path. What this children are going to achieve by being glued to this TV which shows these movie programmes all the time. Dear friends, pls let me have your views.
