‘Kids today exposed to much more adult content through TV’

Panaji: Chief minister Manohar Parrikar on Tuesday said he had watched adult films and regular films in his teens, but children today are exposed to much more adult content through television than what was portrayed in the films of yesteryears.

He said that through the internet, children are also exposed to lot of meaningless content, which is uploaded online by anyone and everyone without any filter.

"There is all the information in the world. But to filter the information and know what is right and what is wrong in the news, you need to train your mind. This can only be done through reading reputed publications that don't allow one to print just anything without filtering it," he said.

Parrikar said he has introduced value education and traffic discipline in schools because not everything has to be learnt to gain marks. "Sometimes there will be hurdles, but being truthful, disciplined, and having integrity will help you be successful in any era, even the internet era," he said.
