The influences of media on development seen to be positive, in the context of youth development it seems to be rather negative particularly in the Indian context. Contemporary media or movies over the past few decades have become an integral part of our society. It has forever changed the way that many people across the globe receive information, news and entertainment. Now with a quick push of the button we are instantly connected to the current events of a country thousands of miles away, as well as the events of our local community just miles down the road. Corporations spend millions to advertise their products on television in the hopes of increasing sales and the face of politics will forever be changed as publicly televised debates and news conferences. Many questions have therefore been raised regarding the impact of that content seen on television shows, news broadcasts and commercials, namely violence and violent images, may be having on adults and children.
