Serials On the Idiot Box

The Effect of serials on TV, on the common village people who are not exposed to the outer world is so much that can not be imagined....

In this blog i would like to share some of the bad instances of serials on the thinking of some men, women and children of remote villages of Karnataka and also some of the weak minded educated viewers.

The serials which are being telecast on the TV are almost all with a story in which the lead roles will have extra marital affairs, that too more than one....
These kinds of serials right from the evening till night, where the whole family watch together give a adverse thinking on the viewer. As they are not much exposed to the outer world, their mind do not allow them to think otherwise. People look at life the same way as they watch on the idiot box(TV).

Girls or women are not supposed to mix with the boys or the men, i.e., if a teen aged girl talks to a person in public, that might be a bus stand or a market place, person may be girl's maternal or paternal uncle, the people around talk in many ways. For example "see how the two with so much of age difference are talking, looks very odd". These kind of comments pass on from mouth to mouth to frame a love story between the two which is not at all true.

These things happen all because of the thinking of the individuals who are not at all exposed to the outer world... except for the TV serials.

My personal opinion is that the serials coming on TV have to be educative for at least some extent that it creates a positive thinking on the viewer.

  2. Welcome to blogging. It is good that you have come out with TV Serials... Good effort.
    I don't watch much serials but know that all these serials have similar story line. Indian TV need to evolve a lot more in terms of program contents. Lot of educative and positive thinking, thought provoking programs are required.
