The television is an audio-visual aid.Now-a-days it is necessity rather than a luxury.Because,it is a good entertainer.In our vast country more than 75% of the population is reached by this mass media.Thus it helps to bring about unity among the people.The Television programmes are informative and educative.

Art,Architecture,Music,and the life in the various regions in our country are brought before our eyes in actual color.Live telecast of national and international events are seen by the people in the television.This brings about better understanding between people of different states and countries.

This visual medium makes an indelible impact on the minds of the people,both young and old.Teaching and learning of lessons are made easy  through educational telecasts for students of schools and colleges.The programmes for farmers enlighten them latest ideas and techniques in their field.Sports lovers see the live telecast of games and sports events held in different countries.The Television news brings us close to the world.Everyday we see and hear the speech of national and international leaders.In short,the television has become an integral part of our lives.

But television has sometimes been misused by students.They abstain from classes to see cricket matches.They see all the programmes for entertainment.It affects their study very much.Continuous viewing of television programmes also affects the eye-sight of students.So the students should see only those programmes which are educative and informative.
