Our culture


Letter April 26, 2010

KARACHI: The first two years of a child are considered as critical time for brain development. TV and other electronic media can get in the way of exploring, playing and interacting with parents which encourages learning and healthy physical and social development. Kids who watch violent shows are more likely to show aggressive behaviour and believe that the world is a scary place. Also Pakistanis give too much importance to Indian and western culture over our own traditional values and teachings of our religion.

Our advertisements and dramas seem inspired by Star Plus. Our actors feel the less clothes they wear the more broadminded and modern they will be considered. This mentality in my point of view is quite absurd and bizzarre. We are negating our culture forgetting our traditions which will be disastrous for our upcoming generations.
