Now a days Indian Television serials are just spoiling the society. These serials have no moral values and nothing have to show. They are just showing nonsense things in their shows. Their stories and episodes are full of irrational and illogical things.

TV serials are for entertainment but now a days serial makers don't even bother about it that what they are showing in their shows. I my views these kind of serials should be banned, because these serials are just glamorizing the wrong judgement, irrational and illogical thinking and acts.

Hello Friend,

As per My opinion, Science is the bless for all Mankind and also having some of merits and demerits too. Science does have different means for every one. Television is also part of science invention which do enable us to connect to every part of the world to seek some information without physical presence of our self.

Television making aware us about all the current events or incidents which are happening around the world, But Now days which is not remaining limited to seeking some information but also become sources of amusements, some of extent it is also true, But Now days, Some of foreign & domestic channel, projecting high dose of vulgarity & crudity in their channel which making youth's mind perverse, that's cause their moral value degrading day by day, and some time they adopt evil way for their gratification, they used to seek brothel and become the carrier of some sexual transmission decease. Some we have been witness that our children spending too much time to watching TV which do effect their study. Some time they imitated the same scenes or Action which was shown in the TV and got hurt badly. Every thing which was made for our development & peaceful use, but our way of thinking make good or bad. And the best example of it is Atom Bomb.

Jai hind.

All the things in the world are created by some purpose. In point of view television is a good thing. It is depends on user thinking, Because some people mainly youth, they waste of time by seeing serials.

Now a days serials and some programs are shooted very badly. It changes the youth and adults mind set. In my view it is a very useful to reach higher position. By watching the television to gain so much of knowledge and it says what is going on around the world. To use television in proper way it is very helpful.

Please remember these words in your mind.

Thank you friends.

Hello friends, Its totally depends on how we use the television. In my opinion, if you are self disciplined then you can say it is a good thing to see television & vice versa. Channels like ABP news, Times now, Discovery turbo, DD National are some of good channels, that can be fruitful for the youths. But if you are addicted with serials than god will help you.

I think it totally depends on one's choice of selection what to see & what not. If youth are viewing knowledge giving channels like topper, discovery, national geography, history etc its really good but if our youth especially girls are spending their precious time in viewing serials it's a real waste.

It not only distract us from our studies but fills our mind with vulgar thoughts. I really feel bad because most of the serials nowadays are showing romance & bodily love inspire of true value of real life.

I think initially a message giving serial is also getting converted into love & romance serials. It's my humble request to youth (especially girls) not to invest their precious time on serials that are meant to see by married or lease persons.

Make a definite goal in your life and always keep it your first priority because in the long run you will truly appreciate it. Never get addicted to these serials and stay safe and posses pure thoughts. Work towards your aim.

Thanks.

Hi friends.

In today's time, television has become a very important part of our lives. It can be used both as a boon or a bane.

It can be boon if it is used properly such as one can watch channels like discovery, national geographic, animal planet and history to increase one's knowledge but is bane when one start watching serials all the time.

It has a bad effect on our minds. One can watch one or two serials just for entertainment but watching many is disgusting. It blocks the mind of youth and distracts them from their studies.

Watching television is good only when it is in its limits. It has adverse effects on children and adults as well when it exceed its limits.

In conclusion we should use television as boon instead of using it as bane.

Thank you.

Hi friends,

Am hear to share my opinions about television. Television is a device which brings whole world.

In-front of us. Television plays a vital role now a days, all age group people are interested in watching television. Especially youth are addicted to some entertaining programs, serials, sports, music channels etc. Everything in the world consists of positives and negatives in the world as usually television too.

Advantages of television are:

We can gain general knowledge and political knowledge.
Comes to know every issue happens around the world.
Can update our technical knowledge too.

Disadvantages:

Harmful to eyes.
Wasting of time by watching useless things.
Some people will be addicted to it.

In my view TV is just for entertaining us when we are free and should not misuse it by watching unnecessarily by keeping works aside.

Thank you all.

Hi Everyone.

According to my point of view TV plays a very important role in present society. It influence is more on especially youth. By TV we can gain so much of knowledge about updates and present society position. But every thing has pros and cons likewise in TV also we have some pros that is it is available to every one and there we can see foreign channels youth can get knowledge about abroad countries. Even though we have latest technology using laptops or mobile TV but it is not able to access village people. Cons of the TV is not flexible and it is some what difficult to carry to another place. Meanwhile electronic companies made TV as small one now it is available to all poor people and it is the best of all.

Television has a impact on everyone child, youth and old persons. The youth are more attracted to it some even are addicted to watch televisions. Television should used as mean of getting Information, learning and television rather wasting time on serials.

Girls do waste time on serials and boys on cricket matches and movies. This time can be utilized productively by watching news channels, informative channels like discovery, history, national geography etc.

But in the end it depends on individual what they want to watch.

All my friends,

As each and every thing has a positive and negative thing similarly television also had but it depends on us that how we handle that. Television effects youth in both matters but in my point of view television effects badly as what they (youngsters) watch they exactly apply on their life. They easily get addicted to drug addition and all that mischievous activities. But if elders pay a little attention on them this bane will surely get converted into boon of our society.

Dear All,

Invention of television is an extension to Radio. Television was invented by J L Braid, the main motto of his invention is to transmit picture along with sound. So, that the information can be conveyed more effectively that could be more understandable and could frame a clear idea when compared to radio. So, the impact of television either good or bad will be more not only on youth/teenagers but on every individual.

In olden days, the radio/television used for broadcasting/telecasting only NEWS i.e., Current affairs, Politics, Sports, Weather etc which contains only few frequencies so called channels.

Later entertainment also came into existence along with NEWS. The people are wise enough to differentiate NEWS and Entertainment and maintain a limit in watching the Television. The channels size went to double digit.

Now a days, many entertainment programs both which are useful like General knowledge, Tourist places, Agricultural methods etc. And which are useless like Game shows, Serials etc. Are playing vital role when compared to NEWS.

Even the same NEWS which the various channels telecast is not genuine at present. So the people are watching NEWS as entertainment and the useless entertainment programs as a great NEWS to know and discuss.

The programs on Violence, Crime, Romance etc are increasing rapidly than the programs on current affairs, General Knowledge etc.

So, we should be wise enough in choosing what to watch in television. If we use the television properly, it is a very useful source to know many things along with entertainment.

Good evening friends.

According to me TV usage is based on our individual interests it can be used in positive way and also in negative way. For example one can use TV for getting knowledge from the news channels and others can use that for serials and other entertainment activities. But keep in mind that TV is invented only for our entertainment and knowledge gaining. But some youngsters use that as their life, this is not good. We want to use that only for benefit of yourself not for destroying ourselves. It should be used in the proper way otherwise it leads to destroy ourselves.

I truly appreciate all the points you all have said friends. Television is a good communication media to convey information to the peoples across the county. Across the world. But nowadays this is not at all a criteria with respect to television. We can't blame teenager's as well. Some programs have been diverting youths. Since fluctuations are common in teenager's they are attracted to such things soon.

If televisions are not broadcasting such things than how can peoples get attracted to it. ? Televisions must be used for the public's welfare but nowadays they are becoming private where they take a topic of someone's private life story and exaggerate it for one week by saying about it.

By conducting group discussions in it and making live show about it. Since people's are more interested in others life than their own life they watch it. Discuss about it and get unsecured feeling about their surrounding all the true feelings and love towards people is going down. Since many people watch it channels increase their TRP's. Even rivalry between channels is one of the important criteria for the present situation. So before blaming peoples I think even programs which are being telecasted in the channels should b blamed.

Hi Everyone, Television is an effective source of information and entertainment. It is important perimeter in building youth mindset on social outcomes. TV provides a better way to dream and build ways of thinking. Today, s life is based on style and everyone knows that, youth got style from TV, they try to be like they watch styles in TV shows.

Without TV, one could hardly know about all possible information. News is another source of any country's informative statistics, provided by TV. Youth learnt a lot from TV, as many universities advertised on TV, thus TV helping youth to decide their career, s objectives. TV shows, whether talk shows or reality shows, they are full of information and helping youth to decide their concerns regarding their life. TV also influence youth badly, as some of them don't want to miss a single show on TV, and in return, TV lasts bad impression on their daily life routine.

Everything in this world is created with a purpose. The main intention behind the TV is to reach the people easily and to make us know about different things which are occurring around us whether it may be good or bad and the main aim is to make the people aware.

Youth are mostly effected by TV because they don't know what is good or bad. They will attract to bad things easily and it may continue further if they don't change their mind set. It is in their hands to make their life as good or bad. The major thing which is attracting the youth are Love related scenes and they start changing their real life by mixing reel life. So, they should be guided by parents and well wishers.

The world not only consists of youth there are children, employees, senior citizens etc. Due to some reasons we cannot restrict the ultimate source of our knowledge and entertainment.

According to my point of view every things has its own advantages and disadvantages. In the world no such things is exist which has only advantages or disadvantages.

I would like to tell some advantages of television.

1. All news channel gives the current information of our country as well as world.

2. All the reality show represent the truth of incidents that were done in past. So the peoples be aware of that as well as and they assure that these type of incidents may not happen with them in future.

3. There are lots of entertainment channels for time pass only. Some comedy serial like tarak mehta, some inspire serial like sadda huq etc.

4. Lots of channel like discovery which shares the knowledge as well as research related information.

5. Lots of filmy channel.

6. It would be helpful for some company to advertised their product.

And it has also disadvantages.

1. Some people continuously on television whole day though they not watch any thing which is bad things and totally wastage of electricity.

2. There are also some channel which represents bad things which spoil our mind.

3. People become very lazy.

So I would like to say that it is totally depends on us how we take.

Hello friends,

According to me, television is a very good way of entertainment and communication as well. So many says that it is a idiot box, but don't you think, just because of this idiot box we are getting more familiar with other countries, learning new culture. From education point of view also it is very beneficial. There are so many channels like discovery, natgeo, HS 18 are making children more intelligent and aware. But along with that there are numbers of shows in TV that are encouraging wrong things (drug addiction, flirting, smoking, drinking etc) on the name of trend and today's youths are speedly taking all these bad habits because they also want to be a part of new trend. Which is not good at all.

So I think its up to you what do you want to be, a good person or a bad person. Everything has two aspects positive and negative its your responsibility to choose good for you and ignore bad things. You should be quite capable to decide what is good and what is bad for you.

Thank you.

Hello friends, I would like to share my views about effects of television.

Television has become indispensable in our lives. From a kid to a grandparent, everyone enjoys it. It's the biggest source of entertainment.

As you all know, every coin has two sides, so as television. Let us talk about merits first. Television is the biggest and most up-to-date source of information. There are a lot of news channels in which recent news are shown. In this way, we come to know about the happenings in the world. There are channels like national geographic, animal planet, discovery which can be a platform to gather a lot of knowledge. There are entertainment channels which are enjoyed by everyone.

Talking about the other aspect, now a days there are numerous channels in which dirty things are shown n mostly youths are attracted to it. They become addicted to it. They try to feel the things in real life. They fall in love (they think they have fallen) , but its the effect of television. Everyday we heard a lot of cases of rapes, it is one the effect of movies shown on television. Smooch has become so common in movies n so in real lives. There is loss of time as we spend a lot of time watching our favorite tv series or something else.

We can make it a valuable thing if we try to watch only worth stuffs. Otherwise, it can do much harm to the thinking of youths.

Television has affected our lives in many ways. From the earlier times when we had on Doordarshan to today multi channels the television has grown.

Yes I feel it is more of positive effect than the negative effect. We have system in our remote to control the channels which we do not want to see. We can lock those channels and encourage our youth to watch channels like National geographical, news, sports. Crime patrol is one serial which shows story of recent crimes. This usually helps us to make our kids understand the world outside.

In the end I feel that television can be used in a more postie way than negative way.

Hello friends, Acc. To my point of view TV. Has a both advantages and disadvantages. And this depend upon the children whether they want to gather something useful from the TV. or useless. Because TV. Channel operator never force us to see that particular programme. So this totally depend upon the person what they want to see?

Now I discuss some advantages of the TV. Channel. There are lot of good channel come in TV. Like news channel, dharmik channel, hindi movies channel, music channel, comedy channel etc. It totally depend upon the youth which type of channels they want to see. All these channel entertain us and provide knowledge etc.

No doubt there are lot of channel which impact badly on the youth like fashion TV, TLC etc. But this depend upon the person whether they want to see that channel or not.

SO at last I want to say that if youth of our country are badly impacted by the bad TV. Channel, then in this case 90% responsible are youth yourself and 10% are channel operator who run wrong programme on the TV. Channel, But if a person really want to learn good from the TV., there are lot of channel where they learn it.

Friends, television has both negative and positive impact on youth, on us.

India the home of diverse culture, language, religion, geographic conditions etc. Television plays an important role in knowing the diversity of the India. When we talk about television we have only one view in mind that TV. Means films, serials, music, dance and some sort of news also. But it is not the case when we see something we should think critically on that ad/film/serial/news or any other thing. We should think is it relevant for me, for society. A film is not just a film, it is an idea a thought which comes from the surroundings only.

Also the TV. Has a negative effect and which is going to be very dangerous future, is that due to it the creative thinking, the thought process of the people is reducing. So I just want to conclude is that inspite of having bad features there are some good qualities also, it depends on us whether we want to watch the useful things or just to watch the TV. Watched it. It is better to watch something than to watch nothing. Because "something is better than nothing and nothing is better than nonsense".

Hello friends.

I am in agreement with most of friends. And I also want to put my points in front of you all.

Television is considered the mirror of the society. It affects the youth by its images. Today youth are the main segment or the main portion of the society who are affected the most by television. Right from the gadgets the youth buy, the clothing sense, various gestures, the way they speak all these are affected by television.

If we talk in the context of knowledge then yes television provides lots of valuable informations related to science and technology, about different biological and botanical facts. There are channels which provide us informations on our health related issues.

From television we get the information related to our nation, about various crimes, various types of crimes.

But like everything it also has some bad aspects related to it. There are lots of channel where violent programs are broadcasted. This makes the youth aggressive and violent. There are some programmes which in criminals are hero. They shows new ways of crimes. Dhoom series can an example in Indian movies. In english movies and serials they show much more violence. There are many stunts also shown in those movies. Youth are easy prey to these illusions and they start trying these stunts in real life and harm themselves. Love related topics greatly affects the youth and they start mixing reel life in the real life.

In the end I would like to conclude that televisions is a two direction sword. Its very informative only if we use it properly. We the youth should understand the good and bad aspects and should act wisely for ourselves.

Thank you.

Hi friends,

The effect of television on youth is huge because as of now in INDIA the best time pass activity for children is watching TV. In that early age their mind will get hugely influenced by the content of the program. So parents must be cautious and should allow their children only to watch the channels which may be knowledgeable or funny. Recently the vulgarity in the programs is increasing, I think this may be one of the reasons for the increasing molesting cases on women. So government should take stringent action against that channels so that will be warning to the others. So the programs must be educative and useful to people. TV is the most important entertainment module available so better it should be that.

Hi friends, According to my point of view, Television should can be affect good as well bad thing. But the one I just took up the point that is, why don't we take the television show to limit because many of our peoples spend the unlimited time to watch TV shows they cannot control themselves that was the main reason to people addict the television shows. I don't mean that television channels are not playing good thing.

As of my knowledge few channels are showing unwanted shows at midnight. This is the main drawbacks people to fell down the TV shows so few peoples are waiting for the particular time of show. And moreover other kind of peoples fully spend it time on the TV shows that was totally waste of time. So kindly guys please utilize your time to watch good interesting shows and be make a limit time.

Television is like a double-edged sword which should be handled with utmost care. It is a boon for the children in the sense that it helps them in learning new skills, becoming more knowledgeable, getting information from all around the world in an easy and more influential manner. There are channels like History, National Geographic, Animal Planet, Discovery etc. Which provides us with immense information.

On the other hand it also exposes them to violence, aggression, crime and many more things like this which their immature mind cannot objectively comprehend. So, it is in the hands of their parents to restrict the type of programmes and the duration of watching televisions for their children.

I too agreed that television is not a bad thing. Because many people said that coin has both sides likewise both good things and bad things are available in that. Its up to our mind what thing we are going to take. And also effects are not only take place in youths its started from our childhood itself. So parents also play important role in that.

So I conclude that television is both boon and bane. But we want to select from that.

When we talk about the effects of TV. Watching on our youth, we're talking about an age group that don't know what is good or bad or has a potential to be detrimental to their health physically, emotionally, and mentally. A parent need to supervise the time their child(ren) watch TV. The amount of time as well as what they are watching. They should also question them about what they have viewed to be sure that they have received the right message.

If they are watching something it should be something that their parents have picked which will add to their knowledge that is age appropriate and inspiring. News is not always appropriate for children, news is not something that children need too see at all. There may be some news items that could be discussed with a child, most definitely not seen! Research has proven that 2hrs. At most a day is enough time for children to spend watching TV. Then there are other activities that should be done each day with these there are really no more time to watch TV.

Hi friends!

I agreed with all of you. According to my point of view.

"All that glitters is not Gold". But, "Gold" also glittered. It depends on the youth how they take it and use it. We use the television in positive (gold) way we learn more things like to see news, discovery, science information in the television, because this way we get more knowledge and how is world going today and tomorrow.

Suppose we use negative (glittering but not gold) way means always see movies, tv serials. That feelings compared with our feelings and life. Its affect on youth.

If you little type knowledge only get. We can get any and more than type information going through internet.

Finally I would like to say television we can see entertainment (movies, dance) only some time for relaxation. Internet is the best way of using youth.

Thanks for all!

In my view, Television has greatly affected to youth because our way of living is getting change according to the character of television. Television affects our fashion, our demand for things and also change our way of thinking because the emotional touch with TV affects our mentality. If we use television for our entertainment then it is not a big deal but sometimes the person watching TV clubs the reel life with real life and from there conflicts begin. It moves the person into depression because real life is very much different from reel life.

According to me it depends on the youth how they take it the they use it. Youth are always excited to experiment new things in life. In today's age there is no film, no serials which don't show crime. In my view these films are giving new ideas to youth how to robb, how to become the best thief, how to tell lie that you can not be caught, how to hack.

There is a big example of it "The MTv Show Webbed" about the crimes done by teenagers. Where they get those stupid ideas of hating, killing, attempting suicide in small problems and there is many more. But there are also some good things about TV that the knowledge of current affairs in the worldwide, how a good person's behaviour should be. If there is half glass of water, it depends on the person whether he thinks it as half glass full of water or half glass empty. So I conclude that it totally totally depends on us what is our way of perception.

Objectives of this statement has both benefits and harm, An individual child's developmental level is a critical factor in determining whether the medium will have positive or negative effects. Not all television programs are bad, but data showing the negative effects of exposure to violence, inappropriate sexuality and offensive language are convincing Still, physicians need to advocate continued research into the negative and positive effects of media on children and adolescents.

Television viewing frequently limits children's time for vital activities such as playing, reading, learning to talk, spending time with peers and family, storytelling, participating in regular exercise, and developing other necessary physical, mental and social skills In addition to the amount of time spent in front of the television, other factors that influence the medium's effect on children include the child's developmental level, individual susceptibility and whether children watch television alone or with their parents.

HI FRIENDS.

Wouldn't say the Tv is bad or good, because everything that has a disadvantage also has an advantage. Like in our schools today we are being thought about sciences but this are theoretically done. Take a look at this movie "kyle xy" it is talking about sciences and how this particular boy was made. Science students learn from this type of movie. It can also be a means of entertainment it can also be used to relieve stress. All work and no play makes jack a dull boy.

But we can't blame completely that it is bad, as we know television has a lots of importance as its a what to entertainment. Without t. We it will feel so much of bored.

Hi friends,

Television has been rightly called an "idiot box "; it has 99% detrimental effects on the youth. Starting from their childhood, television plays an important role in conversion of puerile bairn into a jackanapes.

The mindset is greatly influenced by derogatory shows on television. It has been reported that, the malfeasance committed by youths are most of the times influenced by television.

The plethora of advertisements is causing unnecessary demands among youths, which is eventually a cause of distress for the parents and at the end delude consumers.

The rise of various diseases among the youth is also one of the contributions of television.

Concord between the family members which use to exist is curtailing due to the various Television shows.

I agree with all with saying that everything has its pros and cons but it depends on individual that how they are gonna use it. On this topic I want to say that in my opinion the television makes a child mature at early age. And he/ she knows all the things that one should not supposed to know. And a child knows everything but one understands in his own way like in faded form that is the main concern to worry.

As we say, incomplete knowledge is more dangerous that no knowledge. So, it comes on parents to check the children about what they are watching and what they are thinking about the television. If the childhood is well then the teenage and younger age will automatically be good.

One side where television plays a powerful communicating media and other side it plays a negative role for the youth and children's mind who are addicted to television. So there is a responsibility comes to parents that they should not allow children to watch anything they want to and when children mind moves towards right thing from childhood they could understand what is right for them to built a positive character.

"All play and no work makes jack a mere toy". This is practical case happening in all younger ages. Young prefers indoor games and TV shows rather than outdoor games. Also most of the market products are aimed at young people.

The television takes us to hypnotic state. Also watching television shifts our brain work from Left brain to Right side of the brain. Thus as right side of rain does not analyse the incoming information. The right side of the brain is responsible for Emotional feelings. Thus, this makes us to feel that everything in TV as real and true. The right side of the brain releases few chemicals which makes us to feel good, which later reduces brain activity and its intelligence.

Watching TV not only affects brain activities but also health. This results in lack of concentration. Also the characters replicates on the younger ones, either good or bad character.

Young behave more violently and they become addict to TV. This teaches young both good and bad things. Now a days, the world is up-to-dated on TV. Many things are taught through TV. Its powerful communicating media.

Good Effects.

1. Television gives exposure to children on different cultural experiences.

2. Television also keeps children aware of current events and news related items. Watching educational programs on television help the kids use it effectively, as a complement to school education.

3. Quality shows on television can impart knowledge and important values and lessons.

4. Watching music concerts and art shows can make the kids aware of the various genres of music around the world.

5. Television helps a child in spending time with family members, when all of them are watching the same show.

6. Watching documentaries, especially fragmented for children, opens doors of world in their mind.

Bad Effects.

Excessive television viewing is seen to trigger violence or aggression in children. Watching violent scenes at an early stage might make the kids scary of the world and find every other human being as mean. Often known as 'mean and scary world' syndrome, it might push them backwards in taking decisions of life. Sitting in front of the television, for long hours, has been linked with obesity, as physical activity gets diminished considerably. Children become influenced towards eating junk food, as there is a lot of promotion on the television, regarding the same.

Television is not affecting the youth, rather it telecast the current news to each and everyone. If we are likely to hit by a storm or if we are going to face some natural disasters like tsunami, we do precautions to protect us. From where do we knew this?

Without television you won't get these kind of information's within minutes. Its up to you whether you take the right or wrong.

As food, shelter and clothing are essential for survival, this generation humans believe that television (though not necessary) is essential for his day-to-day although their requirement vary from one another. Because that is the level of dependence on this electronic device. As for the effects, rather than the television it is the individual who chooses the way that he should be affected.

Take a white sheet, make a black mark on its centre. Now hold it to a group of youngsters and ask "What do you see?". The response will vary for sure. Some will say "White sheet with a black mark" and some "Black mark on a white sheet". So its up to the youth whether to watch the white or black. But even so merely watching it for fun/time pass is not going to affect him. On the other side it he takes it to personal level and tries to practice/implement in his life, then its a matter of concern.

Also with the advent of set top boxes where we are given the luxury of choosing between numerous channels parents can refrain from subscribing to those channels telecasting obscene contents. Or the Regulatory authority can ask the channels to telecast those programs with obscene contents after regular hours say between 10:00 pm to 03:00 am.

Earlier television was perceived as a source of entertainment. But today it caters to various needs through news channels, discovery channel, educational programs and many. It should never be banned, it at all it can be 'regulated'.

Many cheap tricks are played in reality shows so one should be wise enough to get useful things or to watch the useful shows.

We Can learn many things through watching TV, it is not only for Entertainment purpose, Now days are parents are so busy to telling stories to the children. The children can see history and they can find the new technology through Discovery channels. Elders can know the current updates through News Channels.

Definitely, television was made as a source of entertainment and we gradually enjoy while watching television. But it also has some bad effects on us especially on children. One of the reasons is that some channels are not there for children but still it is available to them. But because of the highly advanced technologies now-a-days, we have an option to have only those channels on television which are selected by us and thus is the safest way not to get a bad effect on children. I conclude that if there are problems for televisions, then there are also the solutions to it.

Ok friends so our topic is effects of television on youth but what I see here is people are diverting them from the topic, our discussion is based on the advantages or disadvantages but we want to discuss on the effects.

Everything has good effects and bad effects but nowadays television is affecting our youth badly. Like we can see people are getting addicted to smoking, drinking, drugs. These are the effects of television. Now if you ask how I can say this then the answer is simple people watches their favorite actor/actress doing these things so they also want to do. This is having wrong impact on our society.

Also they sometimes show the "A" grade scenes which should not be allowed on television. If kids watches these things then it have negative effects on them. Also these Creates a type of violence streak in the viewers. Long time watching creates physical health problems. Psychological impact through various shows like fear files, crime patrol etc.

So finally I want to conclude that television is having more negative effects than positive effects on youth.

There are many knowledgeable channels by which we can get knowledge. Many news channels are like that. As humans supposed to be the wisest of all creatures, it would suit the human fellows and prove their intelligence if we could extract the best.

Out of any technology inventions, rather than putting their utility in debate. Television if used as a medium for gathering news about society and world. Would be very helpful. As everything has its pros and cons so does television. Under aged children nowadays are getting too much information than required.

BAD EFFECTS:

Therefore the only way is to put a control on the youth. Anyway I shouldn't say that because a teenager could not be controlled by any other Therefore the only way is to put a control on the youth. Anyway I shouldn't say that because a teenager could not be controlled by any other Person. TEEN himself/herself should put control on themselves.

Effects of television on youth is too much from the past years if we investigate online. All the younger generation have started adopting western culture. They are forgetting the rituals, and values. Even they are not performing their duties sincerely forgetting parents and enjoying the today's modern life. They are not efficient enough to complete their goals also. TV has made them couch potatoes killing interest of actions required to be done for them to make their career. On the other hand, some young ones have learnt a lot, become an expert in handling any situation and challenges enhancing more and more of their knowledge by watching knowledgeable TV shows like discovery, national geographic etc.

I feel discussing on whether television is a boon or a bane we curse the technology and its beautiful effects which has amazingly designed the human life and made it simple, unless which we could not even able to sit below a 'fan'.

As humans supposed to be the wisest of all creatures, it would suit the human fellows and prove their intelligence if we could extract the best out of any technology inventions, rather than putting their utility in debate.

Television has a huge importance on a nation's all-round development and particularly when it comes to INDIA its just couldn't be ignored. Its a medium through which every corner of the nation could be reached to spread awareness rapidly on any nation matter seeking public support or providing information.

Therefore I will conclude that we must concentrate on going forward and should use the technology in an optimistic way.

Hi,

I believe whatever we hear see or listen ultimately has a lasting impact on our brain. And ultimately our lives. As knowingly or unknowingly we do turn on the channels which we are not supposed to watch. Or on the other hand. The utter nonsensical things such as daily soaps and vulgar reality shows. No wonder we watch them in our leisure time for time pass but ultimately we would somehow find ourselves pondering over the silly fights the characters are having. Which is a waste of time and energy.

Television if used as a medium for gathering news about society and world. Would be very helpful. As everything has its pros and cons so does television. Under aged children nowadays are getting too much information than required. Which ultimately results in them maturing at younger age and losing innocence. On the other hand it also gives required knowledge which if gathers proves to very helpful as television has "vision" cascaded to it. The things seen would have the longing effect on minds as compared to things read or heard.

So, it depends on the users as what do with the "idiot box".

Hello friends,

I am so much agreeing with all the points given in this discussion. Most of us bring front and prove the point that every coin have 2 sides. TV is good at the same time bad. We've heard/read the point that its goodness or badness is absolutely based on its user. Taking a channel or a program to see, is an act like taking a single iron nail from a load of sand with a magnet. Here magnet is our wisdom and truthfulness. A child or youth who choose to see the bad content on the TV is showing his/her untruthfulness to everyone who trust him/her mainly his/her parents. Let me say a new point that children trying to imitate their heroes and reaching absolute danger. Addiction to TV also makes one obese and make children lazy and wouldn't let them do their school work.

Powerfully showing only the disadvantages of a technology is trait to it because we use it daily. After a whole day of trigonometry, chemistry, physics labs, C++, some time on TV helps RELAXING AND ENTERTAIN the mind with which only our brain could reach its maximum productivity. The creators or producers of the program or the product only aim a certain age group. They don't see before producing it that youth could access it.

Therefore the only way is to put a control on the youth. Anyway I shouldn't say that because a teenager could not be controlled by any other person. TEEN himself/herself should put control on themselves. If this is done by every child, if every one can take an oath with their full heart. TV would become one of the most valuable piece of invention helping HRD (Human Resource Development) ever made.

THANK YOU.

The children are addicted to more cartoon channels, and the consequences are obesity, eye power, health hazards, etc. Thus our children has to be limited on watching TV and they have to be concentrated more on outdoor games. By practising this, young get involved into society and also they will lead a healthy life, both physically and mentally.

Hello friends.

I think television doesn't have any advantage or disadvantage, it depends on us how we use it or for what purpose we use it. Television helps us in staying connected to the other parts of the world through news, knowledge sharing programs etc. Television provides different kind of programs for different people - cartoons for kids, daily soaps for entertainment lovers etc. TV has contributed the youth generation a lot it enhances the youth to contribute to the society. After a long days work TV. Helps us to relax ourselves. So, its to the people itself how the want to use TV.

Television is one of the wonderful gift of modern science. Like sadness and happiness are two aspects of our life similarly TV has both merits and demerits but it totally depend on the user that how he/she use it. It can be very much helpful if can be used constructively and it can destroy the society as well. Nowadays youngsters are very very clever. They know what they want?

TV provide.

1. Helps the world the world to act as a small global village,

2. Entertain the public,

3. Provide useful knowledge through news, games and other shows,

4. Make us aware about various products in the market,

5. Inspire us giving knowledge about different career fields,

6. Make the masses aware what is happening in the society,

7. Reminds us about our various rights.

I totally agree them that TELEVISION can be a boon or curse, which totally depends on it's prudent and sensible use.

And in many more ways it is helpful if taken in its true letter and spirit.

Effects of television on youth,

Television is one of the most important thing in our life. Through that we can watch news, sports, film, drama etc. It has both good and bad things. Nowadays youngsters are very very clever. They know what they want? Many of them utilize this technology for improving their knowledge and leaving their stress.

Technology can never be good or bad. It totally depend on the user that how he/she use it. It can be very much helpful if can be used constructively and It can destroy the society as well. It is depend upon the youth whether they use it for mere cheap entertainment or spicy news or they use it to gather the knowledge and current updates (for ex. Discovery, National Geography, BBc news, etc. ).

Now if we talk to about television, what the impact in society, so it is very clear a vital role of television in society, because television show me current situation that what is happening in the country as well as world. But another thing if we talk to about tv serial, that it's only for entertainment whatever program you are watching on tv. There is no resemblance of anybody life so now come to to the youth impact, so it is up to you which program you have to see or not, everything has some merit and demerit, so you have to choose merit only.

Since the invention of such an immense technology debates are conducted on the various positive and negative effects of television, so is now. These debates are continuing till now as TV is excelling both in positive and negative sides.

Television nowadays has great impacts on youngsters. Just like a knife it is also having both negative and positive effects.

POSITIVE EFFECTS.

1. Helps the world to act as a small global village,

2. Entertain the public,

3. Provide useful knowledge through news, games and other shows,

4. Make us aware about various products in the market,

5. Inspire us giving knowledge about different career fields,

6. Make the masses aware what is happening in the society,

7. Reminds us about our various rights.

And in many more ways it is helpful if taken in its true letter and spirit.

NEGATIVE EFFECTS.

1. Misguide the viewers,

2. Sometimes channels add spices to gain publicity i.e. the data is not always correct enough to rely on,

3. Creates a type of violence streak in the viewers,

4. Long time watching creates physical health problems,

5. Psychological impact through various shows like fear files, crime patrol etc,

6. Attracting youth towards various unethical deeds,

7. Making the youth attracted towards bad habits like drinking, smoking, rash driving, etc which they as a symbol of status.

And in many more ways it is effecting youth.

SO, at last I would like to say that, that 'It is the hands using it should be blamed, not the technology '.

I am agree with all my friends.

I think TV is better source to communicate our society really and here what we expect from that source. Not only television shows both good and bad.

THE ENTIRE SOCIETY HAVING GOOD AND BAD, here what we are learning from that source[television]. I think this is plays a vital role in our life those people are not educated and they can easily knows what happens in the society.

The television gives to us good and bad from that how to utilize the source it depends upon me.

If we receives good thing we become a good person otherwise become a bad person in the society.

I believe that tv watching can be good, but also bad in terms of effect on youths. Kids can learn a lot from TV, and mature from it. But sometimes the things they learn are not always good. Now, with technology and all its sorts, parents can make sure that their children are watching the right things. This is good, because sometimes, kids need to learn stuff from TV that they can't learn from other things. I say good, but everyone has their opinion right?

Hi friends,

I agreed with your comments. But now a days youths have a maturity that they can suggest what they have to see and what not. I know it gives good as well as bad effects. But it depends on parents what kind of suggestions they give And it gives us information of our day to day life.

I think, this situation has both good and bad effect.

It is not necessary that youth learn only negative things from TV.

Now, the youth is more matured than expectations. They know the facts of TV programs.

By watching it, they usually make themselves very clear about what is wrong and what is write.

On the contrary, there are some negative effects also.

Youth spend more and more time watching TV programs and that make them more and more lazy. It can distract their mind from study.

TV helps us in many ways. It strengthen our democracy. Just like in "LOK SABHA" channel we see that how our representatives represent our problems before the government. They told our problem to government or not. If they cheat us then we will don't choose them further in future. Which is also make our government transparency.
