TV- A BOON OR A BANE
TV is the major distraction in the life of a student today. These days students find an easy way to spend time by watching TV and are less interested in reading. In fact, reading is becoming a thing of the past. It also causes harm to the eyes and ears. Concentration power of a child decreases by watching TV. Watching TV involves only eyes and ears. The students are not taking part in outdoor activities because of TV. Watching TV also makes them couch potatoes.
Confined to the ac rooms watching TV is making their health and mind suffer. They are getting deprived of fresh air and atmosphere. They are also getting devoid of healthy outdoor life. Watching TV hours should be restricted to educational programmes like discovery and national geographic. One or two entertaining programmes in a week is sufficient for a child.
So let all of us make an effort to restrict TV watching.

It's true, TV is taking the place of books. My TV has got spoilt for 1 whole year. First I used to complain so much that the TV should be there but now I think it was a good thing. I could concentrate more on my studies and as there was no TV I used to play outside everyday. This article is really good Nayanika. Please keep on writing such articles. They will really be good. Keep it up!
Yes, you are absoluetly correct. What you wrote is an awakening article for parents. You have expressed your views in a very simple and impressive way. Keep writing and make parents & students aware of many facts.
I agree with your article. But it is also a good source of knowledge which makes one confident in his/her work. There are many channels which give us knowledge. Eg. National geography gives everything which you need. It just depends on how we use.
YOUR ARTICLE IS REALLY GOOD. BUT I DONT THINK THAT TV IS ALWAYS A BANE FOR US.LIKE EVERY THING HAS ITS NEGATIVE & POSITIVE POINT,SIMILARLY TV ALSO HAS ITS POSITIVE POINT.BECAUSE WE GET INFORMATION OF LOTS OF THINGS THROUGH TV. LIKE THROUGH NEWS CHANNELS WE COME TO KNOW WHATS GOING IN THE WORLD,THAT ALSO LIVE.
Thanks all the people for all your comments.
Looks like someone copied my article and posted it on http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Is_television_a_boon_or_bane
I wrote it when I was in 6th. In those days, I obviously didnt know much about internet and I couldn't have copied it.
