Why not committees of sociologists for regulating TV serials?In the name of the freedom of the press and media, the electronic media has gone beyond all limits. The TV serials are shown private Tamil TV channels. Now that the lockdown is in force, the children also happily watch these serials. The parents are unable to control them at all.
Many of these serials have stories that are simply atrocious. Planning and execution to grab the wealth of some wealthy relative or even third person, is shown with all the widkedness associated with the bad characters. Or, in most of the serials, even when a man is already married, the young realtive who is also in the same house, would go to any length to attact the man towards her and so on. Invariably, the legally married wife is always shown to be from a very poor family.
I would not know if other language channels have similar atrocious stories. Members from the other regions may share their views here. In any case, the Government of India should constitute a board with eminent sociologists, who could even be retired professors, to come up with ideas on how to reduce the bad effects. They should be authorized to even change the entire stories and suggest changes so that the public is saved from the horrible effect of the bad serials and the bad characters as well.
