TV and Its Impact
TV is a household name now. One hardly comes across a house today that does not have a TV set. Even those who belong to the lower income group invest in a TV set as soon as they can afford it.
Most Indians spend their evenings glued to the television as this is the most easily available entertainment for them.
Now there are cable connections in most of the houses and with the advent of international channels on our television, the popularity of TV has grown many folds.
While entertaining us with soap operas, dances, plays, music, etc., it educates us about the lifestyles of the foreigners in whose lands those programmes are produced.
It brings the people of the world closer by removing the distances that exist between us. Sitting in our rooms, we get a view of the entire world. With a television set in the house, a person can never get lonely. It can be man’s best friend.
However, television turns into a curse when it interferes with our normal routine. Children neglect their school books and homework.
If one balances the TV viewing time and the time for work, then TV is a boon all the way. Else it may become a curse.
