Television Influences Children’s Behaviour !!

Posted by Deepak Shetty on July 25, 2010

TV’s are extremely well-liked and widespread. In every single household people have at least one or two TV sets, on which Kids spend too much time watching programs and shows which do not even bring them any knowledge. Somehow all adults and children become slaves of the television box. One finds it hard to talk to children particularly without anything being mentioned about the television, which proves that much of their lives are dedicated to the television. TV is viewed by families while having their dinner, supper, or even spending their free time, instead of taking up something more creative or something that would have far more advantages. Considering that the television displays a lot of violence in the programs, children are being subject to a lot of brutality and somehow watching TV harms their development.

Because when you come down to think on it, the time that the kid is spending on watching television is lesser time depleted on homework or having interesting exchanges with grown ups or other children. What is more is that watching TV late at night makes the children feel tired, which stops them from paying full attention in school during the day.

Recently What’s-on-India launched a show on Parental TV Guidance – My Child’s TeeVee, which is a 7 minutes’ show. It is an endeavor to create awareness amongst the parents about the adverse effects of excessive television viewing on their kids. The show will be hosted by the famous “Whirlpool Mom” Amrita Raichand and will have eminent doctors like Dr. Sanjeev Ahuja (Paediatrician) – Dr. L H Hiranandani Hospital, Mumbai and Dr. Narendra Kinger (Clinical Psycologist & Psychotherapist) – Cozy Clinique and Nursing Home, Mumbai.

These doctors will discuss and give insights on the adverse effects of excessive television on child’s psychology and the emerging need for parental guidance in television. The show will also highlight some must watch shows for kids, and provide expert ideas on how to handle kids of various age groups.

What’s-On-India has introduced the concept of television guidance to India for the first time. What’s-on-India has been committed to television guidance in India and with its unique proposition to viewers has introduced this show to educate parents on the importance and the need for parental guidance in today’s time and age. It’s time you start taking care of what your Kids are watching!!

Posted by Deepak Shetty on June 1, 2010

CPAA is known for its activities against Cancer causing products. Earlier they have done many events such as Cricket Match of Celebs, Music concerts etc. But on the World no Tobacco Day they were approached by Mudra MaX for a unique campaign – “Cigarettes Are Jobless”

The invitation of the event was already on Facebook, in which almost 35+ people had shown interest to join. Earlier I had received the Invitation to join the Fan Page – Smokey Cigarson is Jobless, Some what surprised, I checked, and I was immediately attracted to join the page!

The whole campaign revolves around the Idea that, on the No Tobacco Day, people have quit smoking and now cigarettes are Jobless. So, they are distributing their resume. The activity was stated early in the day at major locations such as Mahim, Bandra, Vile Parle and Malad.

At Malad the, event took place at Inorbit mall. Luckily I was on that side, so, made a visit. I was never a smoker, but still I took the Resume, and gave a look. Here it is:


It’s a really nice concept, and people were really amzed to see a cigarette box distributing resume. Some people even stood there and shared their thoughts to tell this to their friends. Some people even took 3-4 copies of resume to give it to their friends.


The campaign was done in collaboration with CPAA, by Mudra Max.

Incredible India!

Posted by Deepak Shetty on May 30, 2010

There are many things in life, we just knowingly ignore, or I’m not sure though we are aware we just don’t want to think of it…
Wondering! Yeah…I did not think actually when I started writing and now it really makes me feel guilty when I realize how something’s are manipulated and we are one reason behind all this…

Don’t you think we live in a nation –

– Where pizza delivers home faster than Ambulance and Police
– Where you can get car loan @8% but Education loan @ 12%
– 76 Police men were killed mercilessly but media is busy showing the news of failed sports
persons (Sani and Shoiab)
– Where rice is Rs.40per kg but SIM cards are free.
– Where a millionaire can buy a cricket team instead paying taxes to government and donating
to charity
– Where people are sitting at tea stall reading an article on child labour n say yaar baccho se kam
karvanalo ko fansi lagana chahiye  & then shout ‘are chotu chai de.’

Incredible India! Isn’t It

Did we ever think why all this happens, do we have answers, is there a solution ever for all this ???

Movie Fired Featuring Rahul Bose | Preview

Posted by Deepak Shetty on May 1, 2010

Sex and Nudity are the hottest subject whether to write, speak or ban…and the film industry is the place where such controversies on script take place everyday. There are ‘n’ numbers of critics who point out flaws and we don’t get to see a good movie or sometimes it is better not to see it…

iDream Productions supernatural flick – “Fired” featuring Rahul Bose with sizzling British model Militza Radmilovic Directed by Sajit Warrier , have run into trouble with the censor board.

The promos of the movie have been deemed inappropriate to be aired on television. The reason given by the Censor Board was that there was too much blood and gore as well as nudity in a certain scene in the film.

According to Cable television Network (Regulation) Act, TV promos with A certificate cannot be aired on any Indian channel. The producers have been given an A certificate for the promos even after they removed nudity and toned down the violent scenes from the promos.

Rahul Bose, who stars in the film, feels the Censor board has forgotten to take things in the right context. “I feel we have a misplaced sense of censorship. What I feel is gory or vulgar, somebody else might not. Even for the sex scene, I feel people are more mature now and so self-censorship should be the key.”

The movie is about Joy Ahluwalia (Rahul Bose) who is the CEO of the company at the H.W.L.S head office in London. As the world faces the economic crisis the company is no exception and is smacked by the situation adversely. To overcome the situation and prove oneself , Joy decides to fire more than half the employees amongst these employees is also a lady manager Ruby (Militza Radmilovic), with whom Joy has been having an affair since long  But this affair was distracting him in his personal and professional life.

After a tiring day with loads of work and sniping off the employees, Joy prepares himself for board meeting and to prove his ability. However Joy soon realizes and gets an intuition of some supernatural force in his office. This makes Joy’s living horrifying and his spending of time in the empty office becomes grisly. He soon realizes the reason for the trauma being his deed of firing the employees and it’s their curse that has been turning office into hell.

The producers were advised to remove the nudity and tone down the violent scenes. Even after that, Vinayak thought the promo still deserved ‘A’! This has now upset the film-makers.

Meanwhile, the blood splattered posters of the film, with Militza’s amply exposed cleavage, are grabbing a lot of eyes nowadays.

So folks all we can do is, let’s await a watch!

Why Fourth Finger is called the Wedding Ring Finger ???

Posted by Deepak Shetty on March 9, 2010

Marriage cannot be completed without a wedding ring. In some countries a couple can wed each other only by exchanging wedding ring. A wedding ring is often worn on the left ring finger, which is the fourth finger from the thumb of the left hand. It is a traditional belief that the “vein of love” directly ran from the heart to the fourth finger of the left hand. It is only because of this belief that in some countries the wedding ring is placed on the fourth ring finger of the left hand.

In the Indian wedding tradition, the left hand is considered inauspicious. Hence the wedding ring is worn on the right hand. However, despite tradition the wedding ring symbolizes love, fidelity and marital commitment to each other.

There is a one more convincing explanation given by the Chinese Of Why should the wedding ring be worn on the fourth finger…It says

Thumb represents your — Parents

Second (Index) finger represents your Siblings

Middle finger represents Your Self

Fourth (Ring) finger represents your Life Partner

Last (Little) finger represents your Children

  • Firstly, open your palms (face to face), bend the middle fingers and hold them together – back to back
  • Secondly, open and hold the remaining three fingers and the thumb – tip to tip (As shown in the figure Above)
  • Now, try to Separate your Thumbs (representing the parents)…, they will open, because your parents are not destined to live with you lifelong (Sorry but its the Truth), and have to leave you sooner or later.
  • Please join your thumbs as before and separate your Index fingers (representing siblings)… ., they will also open, because your brothers and sisters will have their own families and will have to lead their own separate lives.
  • Now join the Index fingers and separate your Little fingers (representing your children)… ., they will open too, because the children also will get married and settle down on their own some day…
  • Finally, join your Little fingers, and try to separate your Ring fingers (representing your spouse).

You will be surprised to see that you just CANNOT ..,
Coz Husband & Wife have to remain together all their lives – through thick and thin.. !!

Does this theory convince you… ???
