FSc ICS FA Intermediate English Essay Television

                                          Television


Television is one of the greatest wonders of modern science. Modern science has invented many valuable things, but there is nothing which has contributed so much to our joy of life as the television. If the men of last century could rise from their graves, it is certain they would be speechless on watching the television.

The Government of Pakistan established the Television Corporation in October 1964. Its aim was to introduce a general purpose of television service in the country. The first television station in our country was set up at Lahore. Now we have television stations at Quetta, Peshawar, Islamabad and Karachi. We can now watch moving, talking and living pictures on the screen. We need not go to playground to enjoy a match; we can enjoy it in our drawing room along with our family.

Television is an important means of entertainment, education, communication, information, cartoons, quiz programs etc. Indeed, Mankind should be grateful to J.L. Baird who was the inventor of the television. The cinema, the stage and the club are the recognized places for recreation but they become stale and dull after a time. A television is such a means of entertainment as it never makes us feel dull, for we have the whole world before our eyes to see and enjoy.

Now we can enjoy films, dramas, cartoons, etc. while sitting in our own house among the members of the family. We can watch and hear the talks delivered by the scholars, scientists, politicians, poets, writers, artists, musicians and other eminent persons. We get much to know from their talks and lectures and various subjects and topics.

Television is playing an important role in the field of education. It telecasts educational programs for the benefit of school and college students. Special programs for students are telecast during the days of examination. Students can watch the actual performance of a complicated experiment or operation on the television.

Pakistan is an agricultural country and 80 percent of its population lives in villages. Special agricultural programs are relayed on television for the farmers. These programs enable them to increase their agricultural production and inspire them how they can add to their income by taking to poultry or fishery in their spare time. A weather forecast is given for information and guidance of the farmers in every News Bulletin.
The television has certain abuses also. It affects eyesight provided that the viewers may sit at a safe distance from it. Especially, children don't care of it and they are affected from the harmful rays of television. If a person wastes all his time in watching television, he will become lazy and unpractical. Long duration programs on television, like films, deviate a student's attention from his studies. He becomes idle and day-dreamer. The cost of electricity is influenced too, of course.

In Pakistan, much may be done through television. Our villagers may be told how to improve their methods of cultivation and what the world is like of which they know very little. Our women also may be taught cooking, sewing, etc., through the television. The television would be a powerful weapon of social reforms, and political awakening.
