Foreign Channels! The things that strike our minds are CNN, BBC, ESPN, FTV, STAR MOVIES, AXN, and other n no. Of channels which do dominant the viewer ship choice. The point here is do they affect our culture. Coming to our culture, it is diversified and has a broad spectrum. One point I would like to make it clear to the outset is that foreign countries like America or such developed countries took a long time to shift the modern culture we are witnessing. The trend was a continuous one and it was never a sudden shift. So, the transition was smooth and they do have no complaints about it. The children and parents do have a mindset to tackle their day-to-day scenario, which may look absurd to us. Yes! They do have a different culture and its common for them to have two or three marriages in a lifetime and women also have the strength to live an independent life. Even the children do have the courage to face any consequences and they also become independent very soon in their career. Given this scenario the channels they do portray a mirror image of their culture and their tastes. It is ok for them to view semi-naked or naked movies or shows and it’s a part and parcel of life over there. Whereas in India a women is treated as god (at least what our culture says). We can’t expect our people to behave in that manner. It can be taken as a way of entertainment, but cannot be replicated. The recent trend of movies and shows by Indians is much alarming. The divide between the rural and urban does have an impact on this society. Nowadays the anchors or heroines or songs do have an adverse affect on our culture, which are showcased by our own Indian people. So, where does the question arise that they destroy our culture. Suppose, we have a knife in our possession, using it to kill a person or to cut a vegetable solely lies in our hands. We can’t blame the knife for it. Now, looking at the better side of the aspect. We do have informative news channels, which have 24*7 coverage of world. They do provide information and knowledge to all age groups. The cartoon channels are a big boon to our kids. The creativity in animation and the digital effects of sound they put in, virtually they put life into those pictures. It is in our hands how many hours our kids spend before them. The channels like AXN and the like do bring out our courage to face life in all their ups and downs. The sports channels do give us coverage of complete sports where we can watch our sports person performing in an international arena like we saw our speedster Karthikeyan. It is again in our hands how much time we glue ourselves to the idiot box. The NGC or Discovery channels do add the spice of life with their coverage on wide range of topics from War Scenarios, Scientific missions like rover to mars, Animal kingdom, Volcanic eruptions, Tornados, etc risking their own life providing us the best from the world. Life has now become an inevitable for many of us without listening to those English beats thanks to some of those channels. So, we do have something to ponder upon to decide for ourselves to deal with the present scenario. Good for good, bad for bad.
