T.V, the device on which I spent countless hours when I was a kid now isn't so significant anymore.
Until a few months back, I'd grown a liking for the serials that aired on StarWorld like, Dexter, Las Vegas, Castle, White Collar, Friends, Modern Family and all. I used to stay up till late in the night to watch them. Before that, I used to watch a movie everyday on StarMovies.
But, surprisingly, I don't find myself on the TV much now. To be honest, it's been quite a long time since I last spent 1-2 hours on the TV. I mean, I haven't even switched it on in the past 2-3 days. If I used to spend 14 hours a week on the TV before, it's been reduced to....maybe 2-3 hours a week. And, no! I'm not kidding. I'm completely serious.
The time that I was spending on the TV is now being spent in silent contemplation of the to-do tasks and reading the newspaper. And, I find that I have much more time now than before and that not watching the TV has an immense effect.
I felt like writing this after reading this post on some blog here --> http://celestinechua.com/blog/top-10-reasons-you-should-stop-watching-tv/
Seriously, that blog is a frikkin treasure trove!
