MONA KAPOOR: How will a revised telecast timing change anything? The forbidden fruit syndrome will prevail. People will record and watch. That is not the answer to this problem. Self-regulatory censorship and parental discretion can be a start. Reality TV now portrays a side of society that was unspoken of before. But what is most important to ask is what are we letting our gen next observe and imbibe?

That is definitely harmful for the society and our future generation.
