TV transmission is one of those marvels of modern science which have revolutionized the life of every man, woman and child in all countries of the world. Since the number of TV fans already running into billions is multiplying daily, it is but natural to assume that this mass propaganda-cum-entertainment medium has an iron grip on the imagination as well as thinking faculties of those who remain glued to the small screen for hours together. As it is no easy matter to wean drug-addicts from the embrace of hashish, marijuana or cocaine or cigarette smokers from that of nicotine, it is a task almost incapable of accomplishment by ordinary mortal to break the habit of spending long hours before TV screen. The intimate association of viewers with TV programmes therefore, is moulding and shaping their life in a thousand different ways. These programmes include feature films which instruct them not only what they should eat, drink and wear, and how they should reshape their dining , drawing and bathrooms. But also how to commit murders, and robberies and make the most effective use of instruments of villainy, violence and crime to rise from rags to riches. No other mass media is as effective a catalyst of change in the life of modern man as is TV today. During the last half century it has almost reshaped our civilization and ushered us into a world that is far removed from that of our ancestors who lived on this planet during the time of the first world war. TV has become that chamber or corner of the human brain which harbous thoughts or ideas which is the seat of individuality and which enables man to exercise his judgement. In other words, media lords , exercising their enormous money- power, have spread their tentacles over the thinking, feeling and reasoning faculties of the vast army of TV viewers.
