Censorship not the answer

TELEVISION CENSORSHIP is a highly debatable issue which would raise the question of English channels that show sexual indulgence and have very high TRPs'. It would be hypocritical to censor Indian channels when international channels freely air programmes like Bold and the Beautiful. If we can watch sex and other things in channels like Star Movies and HBO, what's the harm in accepting it in Indian channels? Let's stop setting double standards for ourselves and face the truth — our children aren't naive anymore. Television censorship is not the answer.
