What kind of wildlife is your kid watching?


I shot this pic at the Citicentre, a prominent mall in Chennai. The large screen in the atrium was running some fun and games featuring some animals wearing bare essentials. Standing below with their eyes fixed on the screen, was a group kids. Captivated. Charmed.

Now just 2 days ago, my wife and I were shopping at the same mall. The same wrestling federation was being beamed down to viewers in the mall – blood, gore and all. Mind you, the large screen in the atrium aside, they have televisions scattered liberally around every floor of the mall. You wouldn’t miss the action even if you wanted to. On that occasion my wife spoke to the mall manager and had the channel changed. Two days later, nothing had changed.

I advocate parental awareness. Or are you one of those who says, ‘beta doodh piyo. bada hoke Undertaker jaise banega’?

    Atleast watching WWF with all its gore is better than watching a heavily made-up Rasini thatha in Sivaji – The LOSS.
