Watching Television with family: A Sociological Analysis(with respect to India)Explanation of Media
With the passage of time media has become the base of our society. It had been helpingus by providing useful information relating to politics, soaps, movies day to day lifeaffairs, tragedies, historical materials, geographical knowledge, temperature of places ,notification about events, synopsis of share market etc. It had been providing usinformation of the above mentioned types through the medium of T.V, newspapers,internet spontaneously without any break, In the last 50 years we had seen that the mediainfluence has grown exponentially with the advance of technology, first there was thetelegraph, then the radio, the newspaper, magazines, television and now the internet.Then we must that we live in a society that depends on information and communicationto keep moving in the right direction and do our daily activities like work, entertainment,health care, education, personal relationships, traveling and anything else that we have todo.A common person in the city usually wakes up checks the T.V news or newspaper, goesto work, makes a few phone calls, eats with their family when possible and makes hisdecisions based on the information that he has either from their co workers, news, T.V,friends, family, financial reports, etc.What we need to be aware is that most of our decisions, beliefs and values are based onwhat we know for a fact, our assumptions and our own experience. In our work weusually know what we have to do based on our experience and studies, however on our daily lives we rely on the media to get the current news and facts about what is importantand what we should be aware of.We have put our trust on the media as an authority to give us news, entertainment andeducation. However, the influence of mass media on our kids, teenagers and society is so big that we should know how it really works. But in the past and now also T.V is one of the medium which had been accepted the most in general public as a source of media.
Evolution of Television
The word T.V had came from the full meaning television. The first demonstration of T.Vwas invented by John Logie Baird in Hastings, England in 1923. But the first concept of the T.V was a sketch done by a 14-year-old farm boy named Philo T. Farnsworth in 1922.On September 7, 1927, he finally created a television system that could not only display, but transmit signals between separate rooms. But the actual evolution of television can beobserved from the fossils found in American garbage dumps clearly show the evolutionof the radio into the television set. Layers of fossil garbage from the WWI era (10 millionyears ago) contain fragments of radios that use vacuum tubes. The first televisions appear 
 
in the WWII layer (8 million years ago) that lies immediately above the WWI layer. Thecomponents in these early television sets are nearly identical with those in the WWIradios, so the radio clearly evolved into the television. Both the radio and television showsigns of further evolution, with transistors replacing tubes in later models. Radios evolvedinto televisions through a process of random mutations and natural selection , Over a period of 2 million years, the radio gradually evolved into a television set. Although thetransitional forms have never been discovered, but after a detail analysis it was found thatOne day, on a whim, a worker decided to add a picture tube to the radio. The picture tubedidn't actually do anything, because there weren't any horizontal or vertical deflectioncircuits yet, but the little white dot in the center of the screen impressed the inspector somuch that he changed the plans so that all future radios would have picture tubes. Someyears later, another worker added deflection circuitry to make the little dot move acrossthe screen from left to right and top to bottom. Since this was much more fun to look at, itwas incorporated into the plans. Of course it cost more to build radios this way, but for some reason the moving light spot added some survival benefit in the electronics market.Since consumers would not buy a radio without a moving dot, all competing radios were built this way.And at exactly the same time, somebody at a radio station decided to hook a camera up tothe transmitter, instead of a microphone, just to see what would happen. The image was broadcast from the radio station to the television set, and the broadcast industry was bornand like this evolution of television takes place.
Relationship of T.V With Family In The Early Days:
 After the evolution of T.V we had seen that in the earlier days the scope of television wasnot so wide because one of the reason was that at that time most of the families does notget the chance of buying T.V because of high installation charges , and another reasonwas that after having install also by some families then also we get to see that thechannels in T.V was not so vast , as there were only one or two channels which familymembers usually see together ,and at that time the programmes in T.V was basically no“A GRADED” soaps, movies, but there was cultural shows like dance show like Odissi,baratnatyam, kucipuddi , and then there was shows like “chandrakanta , bikram betal ,Mahabharata , Ramayana , yeh mera circus hai , ardhangini , jai hanuman, DD news” andalso movies which composed of family relations and so these type of serials and movieswas basically watch by all ( grand parents , father , mother, children ) and by watchingthese kinds of things most of the families members had not suffered like this days but hadgained knowledge about our history and culture which had helped them to follow thesocial norms, behavior, values of the society and by following these things familymembers mainly the young members had learned certain things like how to give respectto elders, , how to talked with elders , then they have also learned how to give respect toteachers in school and as at that time there was no stuffs like violence ,pornographyshown on T.V so the family members were not badly effect like this days happening .Many well known researchers had found that at the early period as the scope of T.V wasvery much less so the impact of the T.V was very less but its impact was mostly on
 
welfare of family by providing them useful information about their necessity like news,sports, religious information ,cultural programmes , education knowledge based programmes , and musical shows and programmes
Relationship of T.V With Family In The Present Days:
In the earlier period we have seen that the scope and relationship of T.V with family wasnot so large but now with the passage of time it was seen that the cost of T.V havereduced a lot and therefore a home without a television was not found anymore.And now with the introduction of cable lines and dish TV , the scope of T.V had widenitself very much , and therefore through the T.V the family members can see differenttypes of channels like religious channel, adventures channel, sports channel , musicchannel, history channel , movie channel , news channel , information channel andcartoon channel and so the family members can see the channel whatever they like to see.and also we had taken a note that these days most of the people are devoting most of their time in T.V , like the young ones are devoting their time on cartoon channels and theteenagers are devoting their time on fashion channels ,music channels and video songschannels and also we had taken a note that the elders members in the families aredevoting their time in daily soaps like “kyunki shaas bhi kabhi bahu thi , kasauti zindagiki , left right left , kkusum , heena , office office , ek larki mahole me rahne oli , kahanighar ghar ki and kahi kisi roz” and by seeing these things the elder family members areseeing and learning the trend from the T.V and copying and using these trends as their own lifestyle . we had also taken a note that with the introduction of new channel likesony , star plus , zee t.v family members are influencing day by day , at first we used tosee that family members usually see the T.V together but nowadays the family membersare seeing television ingroups and also in separate rooms because in order not to seethose kinds of stuffs with elders , now a days the relationship of television had gone sovast that pornography are wide been seen in television and which results in destruction of memory of the family members and as result they cannot control themselves and causingthem to rape women and girls and so we can hold T.V as one of the culprits for rape .We had also seen that lots of families are being breaking up to smaller families from the joint families by seeing television soaps , and we had seen also that lots of children arenot scoring well in exams because most of the time these children are making a bondrelationship with T.V channels cartoons and we had also seen these days teenagers are behaving very badly with the elders ones by copying the behavior made by dramatizingin T.V .We had also seen that the children used to gets their eyes badly effect by seeingT.V for longer hours . Then we had also seen that grand parents are not being served well by the house wives because due to immense relationship with the T.V. they forgot to servethe grant parents.Then in the present days we had also seen that the relationship of T.V had got so broadenup with the family members that each and every offices are keeping T.V in their blocks.Then we had also taken a note that the advertisement agency are putting thei
