Sub – Reality shows are veiling the youth with agony
I, D, a resident of MNO, want to portray my notion to enlighten the people to the disseminating effect of reality shows on the youth through the yellow pages of your widely published national daily.
November 20, the announced children’s day, goaded me when I heeded to the TV set and noticed that a young bud acrobatically imitating an adult dancing performance and in the end awarded with discouraging compliment from the judges of the show. Reality shows, like dancing, singing, etc. breathe out of reality; it produces nothing but super-craving for social fame, limelight, TV addiction, and so on. No cultural drop is seen on the shows. Proper study-and-play-time of the youth is being taken away, on this note, surprisingly, parents are also not much bothered, nor even when hard and risky practices (stunts) harm their children both physically and mentally.
Anchoring in the lee of Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act, 1995 the government recently has issued a legal advisory for maximum restraint, sensitivity and caution on such shows counting the risk for the youth but, all seems illusion these days. Parents should also be taken through counselling by the government and the schools. The youth need companionship rather than competition in their prime juvenile era, needn’t they? I would be highly obliged if you print my views in your daily.
