How Do The TV Shows Affect The Youth
Entertainment channels today resemble a circus, where each one is trying to catch the other’s attention. And oh boy! The extent to which people are willing to go to is mind-boggling! There are no limits, boundaries or restrictions as to which people can go.
Want to take revenge from your ex? Want to get your parents agreed to love-marriage? Want to show the world how good you are at shooting abuses to people? Go Go Go… Call up a TV channel. They create a show around your “talent”. Get TV artists to act like your close aids. Mix it with some emotions. And you are ready for a reality show.
Today the word entertainment has become a multi-meaning word. Anything that grabs eyeballs, helps the producers rake some moolah and help the sinking TRP’s of a show increase, is on TV. And who’s the worst affected? People like you and me, the youth, the college goers, students and the professionals. Everybody is the target.
There’s a misconception amongst a majority of our elders, who feel that the young people today are misguided, lost, care nothing about family values and only know about partying and discos. We all need someone to guide us, help us and be there to stand with us when we need them the most.
Sadly, a lot of us don’t get that help and support we need and turn to these shows for help. Picture this. A girl and boy love each other and want to get married. They don’t want to hurt their parents and want to get married with their full permission. So they take the help of a reality show. They install spy cameras in a room, hide their true identity from their partner’s parents, make plans and conspiracies to make a good first impression on them and finally say the truth in the climax scene.
If they are so concerned about their parents’ needs and wishes, then why do they opt for spy cams in a room and hide their identity? They could have done the same off-camera too. Why this whole drama and scene? Why put your family in such an embarrassing situation when talking it out is such a easy solution? And the producers grin as they make a neat profit and gain some TRP’s too.
UTV Bindaas should change its name to UTV Bakwaas. They have shows like emotional attyachaar where youngsters who doubt their boyfriend or girlfriend do a sting operation and catch them red handed doing things which are (ahem!) not worthy enough to be written of.
A person gets greatly influenced by what he/she sees, so if you watch crap, you begin to talk it too. Contestants speak lewd language, hurl abuses at one another and that’s what the audience’s learn as well.
So the moral here is NOT to stop watching TV. Nor do I expect you to watch pogo and Discovery 24*7. Just remember to use your senses while you do something .The stuff that you watch on TV does NOT need to be imitated and tested in real life.
