Star Trek a fashion during their age is never forgotten. My mum still remembers Spo
ck's sexy voice and Captain Kirk's handsome built. It was the time when the television show was introduced and gained popularity in India
and still has a place in people's hearts.
This was when I sat down and thought that would the shows that we watch today have equal importance. Is this 'idiot box' as we call it gone too far to leave importance and a mark of anything that is
I sit down to think that ; would I remember 'Wizards Of Waverly Place' or 'Glee' once I grow as old as mum? I don't think so. In today's age, with so much to trend the value is lost. Coming down to it, television was there when I was born, I grew watching it, and the minor changes were nothing new.
If you think about it, you can find many reasons as to why television was of importance to
our parents. It was something new and interesting, the whole family sat down to watch a single episode of Ramayan and Mahabharata (which was the most famous amongst all that came on T.V in India).In other words, it united the family.
Nowadays, with so many shows - different for kids and adults and teenagers with their o
wn lists, it ends up dividing the family. My grandparents likingto watch the episodes of Balika Vadhu ; my mom wanting to watch the old episodes of F.R.I.E.N.D.S ; dad engrossing himself in travel and living as well as music shows, and me, being a teenager watching Glee results in no or very little time for family.
I started from the importance of television in old days, and continued with its relevance for today's generation. I wish I could club the two and get the same old togetherness in the family back.
