Mass Media has had such a huge kick on people that to accommodate the various media in their busy schedules people have changed their methods of functioning in their daily routines. The dictum of “Early to bed and early to rise” has lost value and the norm in today’s age has become to watch television till late at night.
Media especially television has had such a huge impact that it has become a necessity in every household. The presence of the idiot box helps in changing the life and personality of individuals normally for the worse than good. On the positive side though television has worked to increase the general perception and thinking on various matters of daily lives.
The impact of media has been both good and bad on culture and society. Taking into account media has been used in the country for a consumerist lifestyle.
